Three attorneys vying for new judgeship


Three lawyers practicing in the Waycross Judicial Circuit have been named by the Georgia Judicial Nominating Commission as candidates for Superior Court Judge, a new seat that was created last year with the passage of House Bill 742 by the Georgia General Assembly.

Those named by the commission are J. Kelly Brooks - partner, Adams and Brooks, Attorneys at Law; Judge, State Court of Charlton County; William J. (Sam) Edgar - sole practitioner, William J. Edgar, P.C., (Bacon County) and Andrew C. Spivey - sole practitioner, Andrew C. Spivey, PC (Ware County).

The Waycross Judicial Circuit is comprised of Bacon, Brantley, Charlton, Coffee, Pierce, and Ware Counties. Two of the sitting Superior Court judges in the circuit, Dwayne Gillis and Jeff Kight, are from Coffee County, though Kight maintains an office in Blackshear.

The Governor's office will be contacting the three candidates to schedule interviews in the near future.
