To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime Macon attorney A. Lawton Miller Jr. on his recent passing.

During his distinguished career in the legal profession, Mr. Miller was engaged in the practice of law for more than 50 years with the family firm of Miller, Miller & Miller in downtown Macon before his retirement in 2014. He was an active member of the Macon Bar Association.

Mr. Miller also served his country as an Army veteran with the Judge Advocate General’s Corps in Heidelberg, Germany, during the 1960s and later with the Air Force Reserves at Robins Air Force Base, retiring in 1987 after 25 years of service during which he attained the rank of lieutenant colonel.

Lawton Miller’s exemplary lifetime of service is an inspiration to all Georgia lawyers. We are appreciative of his many contributions to the cause of justice in our state and nation.

President, State Bar of Georgia
