Kathleen Womack, past president of the Stonewall Bar Association and former chair of Georgia Equality’s board of directors, has been appointed to the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia.
The Board of Governors is a 160-member body that sets the policies of the State Bar.
Womack was appointed to the post by State Bar President-elect Robin Frazer Clark, according to a press release from the State Bar of Georgia.
Womack, who is openly gay, made an unsuccessful bid for Sandy Springs City Council in 2005 in the city’s first election after it incorporated. She was endorsed in this campaign by Georgia Equality and the national Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and also endorsed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Womack is in private practice and specializes in domestic partnership issues, wills and estate planning as well as second-parent adoptions. She’s also a former National Park Service ranger.
The Stonewall Bar Association, a group of attorneys supporting gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality, was recently recognized by the State Bar of Georgia as Best New Entry for volunteer legal associations.
