    LaCrosse attorney re-elected to State Bar Board of Governors

    MADISON, April 25, 2003 - Attorney G. Jeffrey George has been re-elected to a two-year term on the State Bar of Wisconsin Board of Governors, the body responsible for managing and directing the affairs and activities of the statewide association.

    "I am honored to be re-elected by the attorneys in my region and look forward to continuing to work with other board members on legal matters affecting Wisconsin residents," said George who is past president of the La Crosse County Bar Association.

    Created by Supreme Court Rule, the State Bar is governed by a 48-member Board of Governors consisting of six officers, 34 members elected by State Bar members from the association's 16 districts, five elected by divisions of the State Bar, and three non-lawyers appointed by the Supreme Court. As policy makers, the Board of Governors and officers influence the future of the legal profession and the delivery of legal services in Wisconsin.

    George has been practicing law since 1974 and has worked for the local law firm of Moen Sheehan Meyer since 1988. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Georgetown University and graduated with distinction from the University of Iowa Law College in 1974. He previously served as a district chair for the State Office of Lawyer Responsibility and is a member of both the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers and the American Trial Lawyer Association.

    The State Bar of Wisconsin is the mandatory professional association, created by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, for attorneys who hold a law license in Wisconsin. With more than 20,000 members, the State Bar aids the courts in improving the administration of justice, provides continuing legal education for its members, and assists Wisconsin lawyers in carrying out initiatives to educate the public about the legal system.
