Hilton Head Island, S.C. – Elizabeth L. Fite of Kutak Rock LLP in Atlanta was re-elected to serve on the Executive Committee of the 45,000-member State Bar of Georgia and was installed June 22 during the organization’s Annual Meeting.
Fite focuses her law practice on representing plaintiffs and defendants in complex civil litigation involving state and federal courts, including the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia. She is a graduate of Hendrix College and earned her law degree from Emory University School of Law. She was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 2005.
A member of the State Bar’s Board of Governors since 2009 and Executive Committee since 2012, Fite also serves as vice chair of the State Bar’s Professionalism Committee.
The Board of Governors of the State Bar elects six of its members to serve on the Executive Committee with the organization’s officers. The Executive Committee meets monthly and exercises the power of the Board of Governors when the board is not in session.
The State Bar of Georgia, with offices in Atlanta, Savannah and Tifton, was established in 1964 by Georgia’s Supreme Court as the successor to the voluntary Georgia Bar Association, founded in 1884. All lawyers licensed to practice in Georgia belong to the State Bar. Its more than 45,000 members work together to strengthen the constitutional promise of justice for all, promote principles of duty and public service among Georgia’s lawyers, and administer a strict code of legal ethics.
