To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime Atlanta area trial attorney and resident of both Alpharetta and the Lake Oconee area on his passing at the age of 73.

A Georgia Bar member since 1976, Mr. Falanga was founding partner of the firm of Falanga & Chalker and tried hundreds of cases in front of juries over a period of more than 40 years. He authored the published book “Laying Foundations and Making Objections in the State of Georgia” and received the 2022 Litigator of the Year Award from the American Institute of Trial Lawyers.

Robert Falanga will be missed and fondly remembered by his fellow members of Georgia’s legal community. We appreciate his career-long dedication and the many contributions he made through his service to the public and the justice system.

Sincerely,
 
J. Antonio “Tony” DelCampo
President, State Bar of Georgia
