On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Soo J. Hong of Blevins & Hong, P.C., on his appointment and to her fellow Marietta attorneys Lance A. Cooper of The Cooper Firm and Darrell L. Sutton of Sutton Law Group LLC on their reappointments by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the Judicial Nominating Commission.
All Georgians will benefit from the service of Ms. Hong, Mr. Cooper and Mr. Sutton on the commission, which is responsible for receiving applications, interviewing candidates and making recommendations to the governor for appointments to judicial vacancies across the state.
With their acceptance of these appointments, Ms. Hong, Mr. Cooper and Mr. Sutton demonstrate their commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish them well in this position of statewide leadership.
Elizabeth L. Fite
President, State Bar of Georgia
