To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to Augusta Judicial Circuit Chief Assistant District Attorney Natalie Spires Paine on her recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as the circuit's new district attorney.
Ms. Paine will be well served by her eight years of experience in the legal profession, including her service as a prosecutor in the Augusta Circuit, which includes Burke, Columbia and Richmond counties.
Ms. Paine's acceptance of this appointment demonstrates her continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system, and we wish her well in this new position of leadership.
