Today, the Savannah morning news has a fantastic article about the late Terry Jackson, a hero of mine and of many Georgia criminal defense lawyers. I did not know Terry until late in his life. He referred me some cases in the past couple of years, and I am working now on one of his last appellate cases.
Terry received the first Terry Jackson Friend of the Constitution Award from the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. And, as well as I got to know Terry through GACDL, I did not know just how many big cases he had handled in his life until I read the article.
If you knew Terry, this article is worth the read. And if you didn’t know Terry, stop what you are doing, and read the article right now to learn about him.
