To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to express congratulations to attorney Stacey S. Jackson of Hagler Jackson & Walters in Columbus on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the Public Defenders Supervisory Panel for the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit.
All residents of Chattahoochee, Harris, Marion, Muscogee, Talbot and Taylor counties will benefit from Mr. Jackson’s service on the panel, which works with the Georgia Public Defender Council to ensure that clients whose cases have been entrusted to a circuit public defender receive zealous, adequate, effective, timely and ethical legal representation, consistent with the constitutional guarantees of all Americans.
Mr. Jackson’s acceptance of this new position demonstrates his commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of professional leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
