“I would like to congratulate all sixteen attorneys who were selected as a part of our inaugural LEAD Program class.

With aspiring leaders such as these, I have no doubt that the future of our Association is bright,” stated Buck Rogers, President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.
“These participants represent a diverse group of GTLA members from firms, big and small, located all over the state and in a variety of practice areas,” continued LEAD Program Co-Chairmen Ryals Stone and Michael Geoffroy. “The goal of the GTLA LEAD Program is to challenge our participants to think critically about our organization, the practice of law and their personal role as a leader in their communities.
