To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations and thanks to Seminole County Probate Court Judge Amos J. Sheffield on his retirement from office effective Dec. 31.

Georgia's Probate Court judges fulfill a vital responsibility in the administration of justice at the local level. Judge Sheffield served six years in that office and has been an active member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2006.

All members of Georgia's legal community are grateful for the service rendered by Judge Sheffield and are inspired by his many contributions toward strengthening the foundations of our justice system, which protects the rights and liberties of all Americans. We wish him well in the years ahead.

Patrick T. O'Connor

President, State Bar of Georgia
