To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend our congratulations and best wishes to longtime and retired Jesup attorney Hubert H. Howard on the recent celebration of his 94th birthday.
Not only is Mr. Howard, who practiced law in Jesup for half a century, a pillar of the community in Wayne County, he is a respected leader in the legal profession and in public service. A former Municipal Court judge, State Court solicitor and city attorney, he served as president of the State Court Judge and Solicitors Association and was a valued member of the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia. He also served his country on active duty in the Merchant Marines during and following World War II.
Georgia’s legal community appreciates Mr. Howard’s lifelong dedication and the many contributions he made during his career through his exemplary service to the public and justice system. We add our applause to this celebration and wish him well in the years and future birthdays ahead.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
