To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Judge Elizabeth D. Gobeil of Savannah on her recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a judge of the Court of Appeals of Georgia.
Judge Gobeil will be well served on the Court of Appeals by her 23 years of experience in the legal profession, since November 2012 as director and appellate division judge with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
Judge Gobeil’s acceptance of this appointment is evidence of her continued dedication to public service and upholding the rule of law. Her fellow members of the State Bar of Georgia wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
Brian D. “Buck” Rogers
President, State Bar of Georgia
