District Attorney David Cooke has been named one of the most influential lawyers in Georgia.
James Magazine, a political magazine, included Cooke on the list in its most recent issue. Publisher Matt Towery included Cooke in the magazine for "instituting an impressive anti-gang initiative and prosecutions that have netted significant results." Cooke got the big news while he was driving his church's youth choir van from South Carolina.
Cooke says, “I'm proud to represent middle Georgia on any list. We have a large number of smart, hard working women and men in the district attorney's offices in Bibb, Peach and Crawford counties and they work night and day on this anti-gang initiative and so many other important efforts. For them, we say thank you so much for this special recognition.”
