To the Editor:

The State Bar of Georgia congratulates U.S. District Senior Judge William T. Moore Jr. of Savannah on receiving the prestigious Frank S. Cheatham Jr. Award for Professionalism, presented by the Savannah Bar Association.

The award honors Judge Moore’s distinguished career of 55 years as a member of the State Bar of Georgia, including more than 22 years of full-time service as a federal judge before assuming senior status in 2017. Additionally, he served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Georgia from 1977 to 1981 and the remainder of his career in private law practice. 

We salute the Savannah Bar Association for recognizing Judge Moore’s exemplary leadership and many contributions in service to the public and the justice system of our nation.
