What's being said

  • Bobby Peters, Superior Court.

    He is good man and will do a great job. He‘s tough but fair, independent, and brings a vast array of experience to the table, both in the private and public sectors. Really a great choice for such an important position.

  • Ken Shigley President, State Bar of Georgia, 2011-12

    Jeff Davis is an inspired choice to succeed the late, great Cliff Brashier as executive director of the State Bar of Georgia. Much like Cliff, Jeff has worked in the Bar and related institutions long enough to be a conduit of institutional memory and wisdom for future Bar leaders. Like Cliff when he took the job, Jeff at 50 is young enough to serve in that position a long time. While I was not on the selection committee, I was delighted to learn several weeks ago that Jeff was interested in the position.
