To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia congratulates Clayton Judicial Circuit District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson on the occasion of her retirement and thanks her for her distinguished service to the people of Clayton County.
Ms. Lawson has devoted virtually the entirety of her 35-year legal career to public service in Clayton County, as an assistant district attorney and Juvenile Court judge prior to becoming district attorney in 2009. A leader among her peers, she is a past president of the District Attorneys’ Association of Georgia and was honored by the group in 2015 as the state’s District Attorney of the Year.
Ms. Lawson’s colleagues in the Georgia legal community appreciate her many contributions during her exemplary service to the public and the justice system. We wish her well in her years of retirement ahead.
President, State Bar of Georgia
