Marc Howard Appointed to Board of Governors for State Bar of Georgia

Atlanta Trial Lawyer Will Fill Vacancy in Atlanta Circuit

The incoming president of the State Bar of Georgia has appointed Atlanta trial lawyer Marc Howard to serve on the Bar’s Board of Governors.  Howard will represent the Atlanta Circuit, Post 36, after a vacancy on the Board was created when a current Board member was elected Secretary of the Bar.

The State Bar of Georgia has approximately 43,000 attorneys, and all persons authorized to practice law in Georgia are required to be members. The State Bar exists to foster among the members of the Bar of this state the principles of duty and service to the public; to improve the administration of justice; and to advance the science of law.


The Bar is governed by the Board of Governors, which controls and administers the organization.  Of the approximately 43,000 lawyers in Georgia, only 150 serve on the Board of Governors.

Howard—a founding partner at Pope & Howard, P.C., an Atlanta law firm specializing in catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases—will assume his duties on the Board of Governors at the State Bar’s annual meeting in June at Amelia Island, Florida.

“I greatly appreciate the president-elect’s confidence in me, and I will work hard to serve the lawyers of this state to the best of my ability.” Howard said.

As a member of the Board of Governors, Howard will focus on encouraging an active role for the Bar in opposing efforts to limit the rights of Georgians to have access to the courts and trial by jury.  He also plans to participate in efforts to improve the image of lawyers among the general public.

Howard, who has successfully tried and settled hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases, also serves as Chair of the Civil Justice Political Action Committee, the political arm of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA) and as a member of GTLA’s Executive Committee.   Howard’s law partner, Geoff Pope, is president-elect of GTLA.

Howard and the attorneys at Pope & Howard, P.C. are committed to serving and protecting Georgians’ rights, and will continue providing high-end legal representation to individuals who suffer severe personal or financial injury due to the wrongful conduct of others.
