On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I extend congratulations and thanks to Judge Duncan Wheale on his retirement from active service as Superior Court judge in the Augusta Judicial Circuit.
Wheale has served the people of Burke, Columbia and Richmond counties exceptionally well during his years as a Superior Court judge. The well-being of Georgia's justice system depends upon the service of public-minded lawyers like Wheale. His distinguished performance as a public servant inspires the members of the legal profession.
Wheale's colleagues of the State Bar wish him well in his new status as a senior judge. We are grateful for his distinguished service to the public and to the principle that fair and impartial courts are essential to the rule of law.
