Message From the President:

The Fayette County Bar Association, Inc. is dedicated to providing the citizens of Fayette County, Georgia with diligent and exceptional legal representation. In addition, our core values lead us to give back to this wonderful community through service projects that help those in need. From building bikes for children to honoring those who are successful in completion of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs, the Fayette Bar hopes to elevate the most vulnerable among us. In 2018, the Georgia Bar Association recognized the Fayette Bar with the annual Award of Merit. Additionally, our very own, Judge Christopher Edwards, received the Thomas R. Burnside, Jr. Excellence in Bar Leadership Award.

Looking forward to 2019, as President, I have three goals for our Bar Association. First is to make the Bar more accessible to the community through social media, public relations, and outreach. The purpose of this initiative is to help those in need of legal assistance find it more easily. Second, the Bar will promote and celebrate diversity in our ranks. Our President Elect will be the first African-American President of the Fayette County Bar Association, and our Treasurer is the first Hispanic representative to ever hold that position. Last and of equal importance, the Fayette Bar is reaffirming its dedication to the community through service projects. We will be gathering food for the hungry during the Legal Food Frenzy and toys for foster children during the 2019 holiday season.

It is a privilege and honor to lead this group of outstanding attorneys. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

James Clifton, President 2019
