To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to former U.S. Attorney Bobby Christine on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as district attorney for the newly created Columbia Judicial Circuit, covering Columbia County.
Mr. Christine brings 26 years of legal experience to the district attorney’s position, including service as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Georgia, as a Columbia County Magistrate Court judge, Army National Guard judge advocate and in private practice as a partner at Christine & Evans LLC.
By accepting this position, Mr. Christine demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of prosecutorial leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
