Persons Joins ‘Old Friends’ at SBL

If you’ve been in Republican politics in Georgia for long enough, you’ve met Oscar Persons, who’s been there longer than you have, and likely will still be in the thick of things after we’ve all given up. Oscar joined the Fulton County Young Republicans in 1963, and on Tuesday joined his old friends at the “litigation boutique Strickland, Brockington Lewis,” according to the Fulton County Daily Report. (Ed. note: What is a “litigation boutique?” Do you get a mani-pedi with every lawsuit?)

“[Persons] joined Burr & Forman,  a general practice firm based in Birmingham, Ala., four years ago upon retiring from Alston & Bird, where he practiced for 41 years.

“I’m getting a little long in the tooth. I still want to practice law, but not in a big-firm environment,” said Persons, who will be 74 in January. “A young 74,” he added.”

Congratulations to Persons and to Strickland, Brockington, Lewis.

Postscript: SBL runs SCOG Blog a website “designed to provide attorneys who practice in Georgia, along with individuals interested in the Court, with guidance, information, and commentary regarding the Court that is not normally available through the Court’s own site.” It’s also a heckuva resuource.



  1. I am not a lawyer, but I know how to Google: “A boutique law firm is a collection of attorneys typically organized in a limited liability partnership or professional corporation specializing in a niche area of law practice.”
