The McDuffie Board of County Commissioners announced this month that Davis A. Dunaway has been chosen to be the new County Attorney. Mr. Dunaway was selected from several other applicants after each presented proposals to the County Commission. “Davis knows the county very well, especially the legal matters ranging from real estate, land use and human services. He is a dedicated public servant and can provide strong leadership skills and has a clear vision for the future of McDuffie County,” stated Douglas D. Batchelor, Hull Barrett managing partner and Columbia County attorney.
Mr. Dunaway has been licensed to practice in Georgia since 2003 and is admitted to practice before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals; Federal District Courts for the Southern and Middle Districts of Georgia and all State Courts of Georgia.

He also routinely advises and assists a broad range of clients in various stages of conflict resolution, preventative measures, and offers innovative solutions to fit each of his clients’ individual legal needs.
