On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Effingham County State Court Judge Ronald K. “Ronnie” Thompson on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit, covering Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins and Screven counties.
Judge Thompson will be well served in his new position by his 31 years of experience in the legal profession and justice system, including the private practice of law and the past 19 years as State Court judge. He is a past recipient of the Champion of Justice Award from the Georgia Council of State Court Judges.
By accepting this appointment, Judge Thompson demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in a new capacity of judicial leadership.
Elizabeth L. Fite
