To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to Fulton County Deputy District Attorney Paige Reese Whitaker on her recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Atlanta Judicial Circuit.
Judge Whitaker will be well served by her 24 years of experience in the legal profession, including the past seven years with the district attorney's office. She has served ably as a member of the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia and is a rising star in our profession.
Judge Whitaker'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 judicial leadership.
Patrick T. O'Connor
