To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to attorney Duff B. Ayers of the Ayers Law Office P.C. in Millen on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as a member of the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit Public Defender Supervisory Council.
All residents of Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins and Screven counties will benefit from Mr. Ayers’ service on the council, which works at the circuit level to ensure that legal representation to indigent criminal defendants is provided consistently with constitutional mandates to achieve justice.
By accepting this appointment, Mr. Ayers demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
