To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to offer congratulations to Veronica McClendon, managing attorney of McClendon Law and Consulting in Macon, who was recently installed as the new president of the Macon Bar Association.
Congratulations also go to Chris Clark of Clark, Smith & Sizemore LLP, who was recognized as this year’s recipient of the William A. Bootle Professionalism Award, Connie L. Williford of the Law Offices of Connie L. Williford, who was honored as Lawyer of the Year, and the Crisis Line & Safe House of Middle Georgia, which received the Liberty Bell Award, all presented by the Macon Bar.
Georgia’s local and specialty bar associations play a significant role at the community level in fulfilling our mission to serve the public and the justice system. We commend all members of the Macon Bar Association for their outstanding efforts and look forward to more achievements in the months ahead.
