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 Savannah attorney Edward M. Buttimer on his recent passing.
Throughout his distinguished career of nearly four decades in the legal profession, Mr. Buttimer was a community leader and practicing lawyer in Savannah. Included in his years of service to our community were 21 years practicing with his two sons in the Buttimer Law Firm. He was a member of the State Bar sections on fiduciary law and real property law.
All members of the State Bar of Georgia can be inspired by the lifetime of service of Ed Buttimer. We appreciate his many contributions toward strengthening our justice system and our community.
Patrick T. O'Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
