In Memory of a Great Client

Chief George Coleman

Chief George Coleman passed away this week. He was the police chief of Fulton County for much of the time that I was the County Attorney. We worked closely together on many issues, but not as many as you would expect because he ran a good department. I believe the tone and character of an organization is set by its leader, and he was a great leader. 

Even more importantly, Chief Coleman was a great public servant. He was a model client who always tried to do the right thing and who always sought and listened to advice. The county lost one of its best when he retired after 35 years of service.

He was a good man, and I was proud to be his lawyer.
