Orr Elected Secretary of Federal Defender Board

Earlier this week, Wyc Orr, Orr Brown Johnson LLP’s Senior Partner, was elected Secretary of the Northern District of Georgia Federal Defender Program, Inc.’s Board of Directors. The Program was created by the judges of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia to administer and operate the Criminal Justice Act of 1964 within the district. The CJA’s objective¬†”is to attain the ideal of equality before the law for all persons … so that those accused of crimes, or otherwise eligible for services pursuant to the CJA, will not be deprived, because they are financially unable to pay for adequate representation, of any element of representation necessary to an adequate defense.” Orr is one of only 16 Board members and is honored to serve as the Program’s Secretary.
