I was the public defender in Lexington County for 14 years.
I began shortly after Donnie Myers became solicitor, and he and I sort of grew up together in those roles.
He is an excellent solicitor: honest, forthcoming and reasonable, but tough.
He also is one of the best trial lawyers I have ever seen in a courtroom. He is, and I feel certain will remain, a legend among solicitors in this state.
Never miss a local story.
He has done an outstanding job for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, and we will miss him.
When we see him, we should thank him for his work; he will be hard to replace.
