Attorney Mawuli Davis of the Davis Bozeman Law Firm in Decatur is the 2019 recipient of the Ben F. Johnson, Jr. Public Service Award, the highest awarded presented by Georgia State University’s College of Law.

The award is presented each year to a Georgia attorney whose overall accomplishments reflect the high tradition of  founding dean, Ben F. Johnson, Jr.,

Wendy F. Hensel, Dean of Georgia State College of Law, applauded Davis for his service to the community.

“Many of us talk about the need to fight injustice, to be better people ourselves, and to help other people lead productive lives. Mawuli, however, is someone who lives that ethic every day in everything he does, ” Hensel said.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who attended the awards program, said Davis has a “contagious passion for people who don’t often  have avoice in our community.”

“To choose to practice the people’s law is a very special calling and a very important calling because it’s not one that many people would make. Quite often, people will chase the money and forget our communities. But you, Mawuli, have made sure that not only are our communities not forgotten but that we don’t forget our communities as well,” Mayor Bottoms said.
