Hall-County-Courthouse-Georgia-DUI-Lawyer

The Superior Court judges of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit on Friday, June 17, announced their selection of Amber Redford Sowers to fill an upcoming juvenile judge vacancy. Ms. Sowers’ appointment will be effective January 1, 2023, and will fill the vacancy created by Chief Juvenile Judge Lindsay H. Burton’s election to the Superior Court bench.  

Ms. Sowers has served the citizens of Hall County as Chief Assistant Solicitor General since 2009, after beginning her career in that office in 2006. She is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Law and has been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2005.

“We’re very pleased to have Ms. Sowers continue her public service in this new capacity,” stated Chief Judge Kathlene F. Gosselin. “She’s been an effective leader in the Solicitor General’s office, was a longtime member of the Family Treatment Court team, and has demonstrated a strong commitment in the community to making a positive impact in the lives of children.” 

Ms. Sowers is a previous Board Chair of the Children’s Center for Hope & Healing and previous Chair of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit Domestic Violence Task Force. She serves as a volunteer with Hall County Schools’ Work-Based Learning Program and is a member of First Baptist Church of Buford. She is a 2015 recipient of the Georgia Assistant-Solicitor General of the Year award and a 2013 graduate of Leadership Hall.

Juvenile judges are appointed to the bench by the Superior Court judges of the circuit, and Ms. Sowers will be joining Juvenile Court Judge Alison Toller, Juvenile Court Judge Joe Diaz, and Juvenile Court Judge Matthew Leipold.
