Savannah Attorney Lester Johnson Appointed To Judicial Qualifications Commission


State Bar of Georgia President Patrise M. Perkins Hooker has announced the appointment of Attorney Lester B. Johnson, III of Savannah to serve on the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Commission (JQC).

“All Georgians will benefit from the service of Attorney Johnson on the JQC, in light of his vast experience in dealing with the judiciary on the federal, Superior and State Court levels. His breadth of experience and his professional demeanor and style will lend considerable validity to the opinions on cases he renders before the JQC,” said Perkins-Hooker, whose nomination of Johnson was confirmed by the Board of Governors of the State Bar earlier this month.

The JQC investigates and conducts hearings on complaints of misconduct by Georgia judges and issues opinions regarding appropriate judicial conduct, operating under rules established by the Supreme Court of Georgia.

The commission meets monthly to review complaints and determine whether further investigation should be pursued or disciplinary action should be taken.

The seven-member commission includes three attorneys with at least 10 years of experience, who are appointed by the State Bar of Georgia; two judges selected by the Supreme Court of Georgia; and two citizens appointed by the governor. All members serve four-year terms on the commission.

Johnson, who earned his law degree from the University of Miami, was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 1979. He has been engaged in private law practice for more than 30 years. He has served as Savannah’s assistant city attorney since 1982 and as attorney for the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System since 1991. He is the current president of the Georgia School Board Association’s Council of School Attorneys and in 1996-97 was the first African American president of the Savannah Bar Association.

Perkins- Hooker noted that Johnson’s appointment boosts diversity on the JQC, which she said helps ensure the commission’s membership reflects the makeup of Georgia’s judiciary. “Attorney Johnson’s acceptance of this post is evidence of his continued dedication to serving the public and the justice system,” Perkins-Hooker concluded. “We wish him well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.”
