To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Senior Superior Court Judge Wade M. Crumbley on the recent ceremonial unveiling of his official portrait, placed in the Henry County Courthouse in recognition of his service to the justice system.
Judge Crumbley is well deserving of the honor, in light of his recent retirement from active judicial service following 40 years in the legal profession and 12 years as a Superior Court judge in the Flint Judicial Circuit.
The ceremony coincided with the Henry County Bar Association’s observance of Law Day 2018, which featured remarks by Justice David E. Nahmias of the Supreme Court of Georgia and attended by fifth-grade students from Henry County schools, along with Judge Crumbley’s family members, colleagues and friends.
The national theme for this year’s celebration of Law Day, “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom,” acknowledges the system of checks and balances among the three branches of U.S. government – legislative, executive and judicial.
We add our applause to Judge Crumbley and wish him well in his new status as a senior judge. We also salute our colleagues in Henry County for a most successful observance of Law Day, which helps make the public aware of the importance and value of our justice system.
Brian D. “Buck” Rogers
President, State Bar of Georgia
