The law firm of Jones, Osteen & Jones welcomes the addition of local attorney Richard E. Braun Jr.
A graduate of Georgia Southern University and the University of Mississippi School of Law, Braun is the solicitor general of McIntosh County and immediate past president of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit Bar Association.
"We are very excited to have Richy join us," said J. Noel Osteen, partner in Jones, Osteen and Jones. "His experience and skill as an attorney are invaluable assets to the firm and to our clients."
Billy Jones, another in the firm, added, "He has deep roots in Liberty County. His parents and grandparents on both sides of the family are all from Liberty County. They have helped him develop a deep love and understanding of the traditions and history of this area of Georgia. We believe that will serve him and his clients well in the years to come."
Prior to joining the firm, Braun was a partner in Braun & Braun, LLP. The senior partner, State Court Judge Leon M. Braun Jr., left the firm to convert to full-time status on the bench.
"It was with much thought and consideration that we made the decision to close Braun and Braun," Richard Braun said. "I want to sincerely thank my partner, Leon, for the years of service he has given to this community as a practicing attorney and to congratulate him on achieving full-time status on the bench. His dedication and unwavering commitment to the people of Liberty County is unmatched."
Osteen added, "Leon Braun is an excellent judge and we are pleased that he has gone on the bench full-time. Liberty County is fortunate to have someone of his stature."
Joining Richy at Jones, Osteen and Jones are seasoned paralegals, Lisa Braun, Joann Mummey and Joannie Gonzalez, also formerly of Braun and Braun, LLP.
Richard Braun continues to provide a range of legal expertise and experience as a real estate and personal injury attorney and litigator.
