Atlanta Lawyer Marc Howard Ends Ten-Year Term at Georgia Board of Governors
ATLANTA, GA — (January 20, 2020) Atlanta-based trial attorney Marc Howard of Pope & Howard, P.C. in Atlanta, Georgia, has ended a decade-long relationship with the Georgia Board of Governors. He attended his last meeting on January 11th, 2020.
The Board of Governors oversees the State Bar of Georgia, with members serving as a voice for other lawyers in their circuit. Howard was elected to five 2-year terms by the 12,000 lawyers in the Atlanta Judicial Circuit.
“I’ve enjoyed my time with the Board of Governors so much. It’s given me a chance to provide input on really important state-wide matters, such as whether attorneys in Georgia should have mandatory malpractice insurance, but it’s time for me to step down and focus on other commitments,” Howard explained.
Howard was most recently elected to the board of directors for the Georgia Appleseed Center for Law & Justice, a nonprofit organization that helps increase justice throughout the state via law and policy reform.
In addition to his caseload and work with the Georgia Appleseed Center for Law & Justice, Howard is also involved with pro bono efforts through the Stable Homes Project in Atlanta, a group dedicated to helping tenants resolve disputes with their landlords.
“As I move on from the Georgia Board of Governors, I’m excited to see how I can help the local community through my involvement with other organizations,” Howard added.
