The Johns Creek City Council appointed Richard Carothers and E. Ronald Bennett, Jr. of the law firm Carothers & Mitchell, as interim city attorneys, effective June 2.

“We are very pleased to have these skilled legal professionals representing us,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “Their long and outstanding experience in working with Georgia cities and counties precedes them and we’re fortunate to have them on board.”

The Buford, Georgia-based firm, founded in 1996 by Carothers and Thomas Mitchell, have handled legal matters for a number of Georgia governments, including Gwinnett Counties and the Cities of Lilburn, Berkeley Lake, Hoschton, Statham and Flowery Branch.

“Ron and I are looking forward to working with the Mayor, Council and professional staff and assisting the City of Johns Creek in achieving its goals for its citizens and businesses,” said Richard Carothers.

Carothers and Bennett, who will function as the city attorney and assistant city attorney respectively, can be reached at (770) 932-3552 or through City Hall at (678) 512-3200.
