To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Henry County Solicitor General John A. “Trea” Pipkin III of McDonough on his appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Flint Judicial Circuit.
Judge Pipkin will benefit from his 11 years of experience in the legal profession, including the past five years as solicitor general and his prior service as an assistant district attorney in the Flint Circuit.
Judge Pipkin’s acceptance of this appointment is evidence of his continued dedication to serving the public. His fellow members of the State Bar of Georgia wish him well in a new capacity of judicial leadership.
Brian D. “Buck” Rogers
President, State Bar of Georgia
