To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime Rossville attorney Lindsay H. Bennett Jr. after his passing on April 12.

A member of the Georgia Bar since 1960, Mr. Bennett practiced law in his hometown of Rossville for six decades, representing people from all walks of life before juries in eight different states. He served his profession as president of the Lookout Mountain Bar Association, vice president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and as a state delegate to the Board of Governors of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. 

Lindsay Bennett Jr. will be missed and fondly remembered by his fellow members of the legal community. We appreciate his dedication and the many contributions he made during his career through his exemplary service to the public and justice system.  

Sincerely,
 
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
