To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to former Fulton County Magistrate Court Judge Stephanie C. Davis on her appointment by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to serve as a judge on the Atlanta Municipal Court.
Judge Davis will be well served in her new position by her 35 years of experience in the legal profession and justice system, including 18 years as a Magistrate Court judge and previous service as a staff attorney for the Court of Appeals of Georgia. In 2012, she received the Horace T. Ward Legacy Award from the Gate City Bar Association.
By accepting this appointment, Judge Davis demonstrates her continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
