The Superior Court judges of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit have announced the appointment of Joe Raymond Diaz as Juvenile Court judge of Hall County.
Diaz will replace Robert A. "Bo" Weber who recently resigned the appointment..

County government officials said in a written statement that Diaz, is the first person of Latino descent to serve as a judge in the Northeastern Judicial Circuit.

Diaz, a graduate of Duke University and the University of Georgia Law School, has been practicing law in the City of Gainesville and the Dawson and Hall County communities for more than 23 years. He is the founder of the Law Offices of Joe Raymond Diaz, P.C., which has provided bilingual representation, specializing in domestic and criminal litigation in the superior, state, juvenile, magistrate and probate courts of Hall, Dawson and surrounding counties.

In addition, he has served as a mediator for the Ninth District since 1994. He also served on the Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board for a number of years.
Diaz will take over for Weber, who served a little more than a year on the bench.
"Robert Weber resigned from his judicial appointment at the end of October following an offer in the private sector that he felt was beneficial to him and his family. We thank him for his service and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors," Hall County Government Public Information Officer Katie Crumley said in an email statement.
