Gov. Brian Kemp has appointed a Cartersville litigator as district attorney in the Cherokee Judicial Circuit.

The new DA is Samir Patel of White and Choate, who has handled criminal defense, family law and general litigation. Patel will fill the vacancy left by former DA and now Judge Rosemary Greene, whom Kemp appointed in February to the Cherokee Judicial Circuit as Superior Court. Greene filled the judicial vacancy created by the retirement of Judge David K. Smith, effective Oct. 31, 2020. The circuit includes Bartow and Gordon counties in northwest Georgia about halfway between Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
