LAWRENCEVILLE — The Gwinnett County seat’s longtime chief municipal court judge has been tapped for the Frost Ward Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Municipal Court Judges of Georgia.

Dennis Still, Lawrenceville’s chief judge since 1980, was presented with the honor in late June at the 20th anniversary meeting of the council, according to a news release.

The presentation states Still, who is a partner at the Garner and Still law firm in Lawrenceville, has given “outstanding and dedicated service” to the council and thus advanced the professionalism in municipal courts throughout Georgia.

Still has served 14 years on the Municipal Courts Training Council of Georgia, with the last eight years spent as chair. The training council was established by the state to improve the quality of judicial services in Georgia.

Still is also Dacula’s city attorney, a role he’s held since 1979, and the past president of both the City Attorneys Section of the Georgia Municipal Association and the Gwinnett County Bar Association. Besides his many other roles, he is active in the Rotary Club of Braselton and is the chair emeritus of the Georgia Rotary Student Program.
