Passing of Jerry Harrell
The Martin Snow family sadly notes the passing of our longtime friend and colleague, Jerry Harrell, who died on September 5, 2016. Mr. Harrell’s distinguished career with Martin Snow began in 1969. In 1970, while employed by the firm, he obtained his L.L.M. in taxation from Emory University. His many roles here included leading the firm as a managing partner and as general counsel for the Georgia Community Bankers Association (beginning 1978). In addition, he moderated the Community Bankers Association of Georgia Regulation and Tax Liaison Committee’s quarterly meetings and frequently addressed Georgia bankers. Among his many career achievements, Mr. Harrell was named a Georgia Super Lawyer by Georgia Super Lawyers Magazine, a honor achieved each year by only 5 percent of Georgia lawyers. Mr. Harrell was a leader of our firm and statesman of our community. He will be deeply missed by his family at Martin Snow. A link to his obituary is here.
