To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Henry County Magistrate Court Associate Judge Holly Veal of McDonough on her recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Flint Judicial Circuit, covering Henry County.
Judge Veal will be well served by her 14 years of experience in the legal profession, including previous service as a public defender in Albany, Ga., and a prosecutor in Houston, Clayton and Henry counties.
With her acceptance of this appointment, Judge Veal demonstrates her ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
