To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Forsyth County State Court Judge Leslie Abernathy-Maddox on her recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve on the State Commission on Family Violence.
All Georgians will benefit from Judge Abernathy-Maddox’s service on the commission, which strives to provide leadership to end family violence by promoting safety, ensuring accountability and improving justice for generations to come. She also chairs the Forsyth County Domestic Violence Task Force Annual Forum on Domestic Violence.
With her acceptance of this appointment, Judge Abernathy-Maddox demonstrates her continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new position of statewide leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
