To the Editor:

The State Bar of Georgia extends condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime Augusta attorney and retired Wall Ellison Law Firm partner James B. “Jim” Wall, whose passing May 25 has left us all saddened. 

Dedicated to professional and public service throughout a career that spanned four decades, Mr. Wall served as president of the Augusta Bar Association and as county attorney for Richmond County. He also served his country as an Army Signal Corps captain at Fort Gordon.

Mr. Wall will be missed and fondly remembered by his legal community colleagues. We appreciate the many contributions he made during his admirable career and his exemplary service to the profession and the justice system.
