I hope to continue my work on the Board of Governors for a third term. My goal is to promote professionalism and respect within the Bar. We have chosen a profession that can involve difficult relationships, with opposing counsel, our clients, even our judges. Professionalism among lawyers allows difficulties to remain in the courtroom. We elevate morale and help our clients when we show respect for each other. Programs developed by the State Bar of Georgia encourage professionalism, thereby promoting morale in our practice. Lawyers do important work and it is easier to create high quality work product for our clients when the lawyers in a case respect each other.
Through my involvement in the Bar, I seek to promote professionalism and courtesy to create a better practice and quality of life for Georgia lawyers.
