To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia extends condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of Donald W. Huskins of the Huskins Law Firm LLC in Eatonton, whose passing Oct. 13 has left us all saddened.
A member of the State Bar of Georgia since 1974, Mr. Huskins was the first solicitor general of the Putnam County State Court and served in that role for 30 years. This was in addition to his private practice and service as an assistant district attorney for the Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit. A leader among his peers, he represented the Ocmulgee Circuit on the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia. He also served his country as a decorated Army veteran of the Vietnam War.
Donald Huskins will be missed and fondly remembered by Georgia’s legal community. We appreciate the many contributions he made during his admirable career and his exemplary service to the public and the justice system of our state.
