To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime attorney Richard A. Bunn of Hamilton on his recent passing.

During his exemplary legal career of 37 years, Mr. Bunn became a leader among Georgia's criminal defense attorneys. He served as past president of the Chattahoochee Bar Association and was a Sustaining Member and former area vice president of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He was a Master in the Columbus American Inns of Court, a Fellow of the Lawyers Foundation of Georgia and a founding member of the Georgia Innocence Project. Mr. Bunn also served his country as a decorated Air Force veteran.

All members of the State Bar of Georgia can be inspired by the lifetime of service of Richard Bunn. We appreciate his many contributions toward strengthening the foundations of our justice system, which protects the rights and liberties of all Americans.

Patrick T. O'Connor

President, State Bar of Georgia
