Mr. CHAMBLISS. Mr. President, I rise this afternoon to say a few words about an excellent lawyer from Macon, GA, Marc Treadwell, who has been nominated to serve as a U.S. District Court Judge for the Middle District of Georgia, the district I was privileged to practice in for 26 years.
He is a native of Blackshear, GA, but as an ``Army brat,'' he grew up near various bases around the United States and abroad.
He is a graduate of Valdosta State University, as well as the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in Macon.
At Mercer, Marc served on the law review and was a member of the school's prestigious Brainerd Currie Honor Society.
After graduation, Marc went to Atlanta to begin his practice of law and returned to Macon in 1985 and has practiced in Macon ever since. He currently is a partner with the Macon firm of Adams, Jordan & Treadwell.
Marc has been inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers and Martindale-Hubbell and his colleagues have given him the highest rating available to a lawyer in the country with an AV rating.
He now teaches at his alma mater, Mercer, and has written more than 50 publications for law reviews and other publications. Marc is also recognized as a leading authority on the evidence law in our State of Georgia.
Marc and his wife Wimberly have two sons, Thomas and John. In addition to juggling his law practice, teaching and family duties, Marc is an active member of the Vineville United Methodist Church in Macon.
I am pleased to commend Marc Treadwell to my colleagues, and I believe he will serve Georgians and Americans very well as a Federal judge and will be a fine addition to the bench.
Marc gets the highest remarks from his colleagues with whom I have talked over the last several months. I am extremely pleased to be here today to recommend to all of my colleagues the confirmation of Marc Treadwell to be a U.S. district judge for the Middle District of Georgia.
