Hall County appoints new County Attorney

Gainesville, GA --  (submitted by Nikki Young)  The Hall County Board of Commissioners voted Thursday to appoint Gainesville firm Stewart, Melvin & Frost as County Attorney.

The general legal counsel contract rates are $150/hour for a partner, $125/hour for an associate, and $95/hour for a paralegal. The contract does not include bond disclosure counsel, which the Commission will seek separately.

Seven firms applied for the position. Commissioners, the County Administrator, Finance Director, Public Works & Utilities Director, and Planning & Zoning Director reviewed the proposals. The County Attorney was selected based on firm experience and workload, personnel experience, references, proximity to Hall County offices, the proposal structure and content, and pricing.

Stewart, Melvin & Frost served as County Attorney from 1992 to January 2011. Atlanta firm Holland & Knight was appointed as Interim County Attorney until the competitive bid process was completed.
