To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to Daniel W. Lee, partner with Freeman Mathis & Gary LLP in Atlanta, on his recent appointment to serve as city attorney for the City of Sandy Springs.
Mr. Lee will be well served by his 32 years of experience in the practice of law, including more than 25 years as a municipal and county attorney. He previously served the public as a member of the Georgia Senate, during which time he chaired the Senate Public Safety and Judiciary committees, and as solicitor general for Troup County, Ga.
Dan Lee’s acceptance of this appointment demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system, and we wish him well in this new position of leadership.
Patrick T. O’Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
