To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Hall County Solicitor-General Stephanie Woodard of Gainesville on her recent reappointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve on the State Commission on Family Violence.
We also congratulate Catalina Alvarez of Flowery Branch, a staff attorney in the Gainesville office of the Georgia Legal Services Program, on her appointment by Gov. Deal as a new member of the commission, which strives to provide leadership to end family violence by promoting safety, ensuring accountability and improving justice for generations to come.
By accepting these appointments, Ms. Woodard and Ms. Alvarez demonstrate their continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish both of them well in this capacity of statewide leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
