On Thursday, August 24, 2023, the Supreme Court of Georgia suspended attorney Kathleen Strang for her failure to provide adequate responses to the State Bar’s notice of investigation.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Kathleen Strang,” with case no. S24Y0064.

Kathleen Strang faces disciplinary action due to her failure to provide adequate responses to the State Bar’s notice of investigation. The gravity of the situation prompted the court to consider the maximum penalty outlined in the notice, which is disbarment. This decision was reached in accordance with State Bar Rule 4-204.3(d), underlining the seriousness of the violations.

Consequently, the Supreme Court of Georgia issued an official order suspending Kathleen Strang from the practice of law within the state of Georgia. This suspension will remain in effect until further orders are issued by the Court.

The Disposition states:

“It is ordered that Strang be suspended from the practice of law in Georgia until further order of this Court.”

AlbanyHerald reported that in 2010, a complaint was filed that highlighted various alleged instances of unprofessional conduct and negligence in Strang’s management of legal affairs on behalf of the city. One specific allegation pertained to Strang’s unauthorized use of city equipment while working as a contract attorney with the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council for the city of Hinesville.

Former Assistant City Manager Wes Smith categorized Strang’s potential termination as an internal personnel issue. Strang, alongside fellow members of the city attorney’s office, has engaged in discussions with the Albany City Commission concerning an ongoing inquiry into her grievances against Davis. Nevertheless, the city has declined public access to information concerning Strang’s complaint, citing an exemption within the state open records law that pertains to ongoing personnel investigations.

Ms. Strang attended the University of Georgia School of Law. She practices in Albany, Georgia. She is licensed in Georgia. Her info can be found on Avvo.
