Mark W. Alexander, a partner at Stewart, Melvin & Frost, has been re-elected to the State Bar of Georgia’s Board of Governors.
Alexander will continue to serve on the board’s Post 1 seat, representing Dawson and Hall counties of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit.
“I’ve enjoyed serving on the Board of Governors and look forward continuing to work on the important issues facing our profession and our state,” Alexander said.
Alexander’s law practice is focused on personal injury and wrongful death cases. Based on his many years of experience in this field, he has developed a Crisis Navigation Guide that he provides as a service to his clients and others throughout the Northeast Georgia region. He is also a past president of the Gainesville-Northeastern Bar Association and formerly served on the Magistrate Judge Merit Selection Panel for the U.S. Northern District.
He earned his law degree from the Mercer University Walter F. George Law School and was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 1990.
The Board of Governors is the 160-member policymaking authority of the State Bar, with representation from each of Georgia’s judicial circuits. The board holds regular meetings at least four times per year.
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 approximately 52,000 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.
