Former Solicitor of Southwestern Circuit and Popular Atlantlan [sic] Join Firm

Frank A. Hooper, who is to assist the solicitor general in the prosecution in the Phagan case, and M.F. Goldstein, a well known young attorney, will join the law firm of Little & Powell on July 1.

The senior members of the firm are John D. Little and Judge Arthur Powell. After July 1 the firm will be styled Little, Powell, Hooper & Goldstein.

Mr. Hooper served in the southwestern circuit for twelve years as solicitor general, but removed from Americus to Atlanta a few years ago to become general counsel for the Empire Life Insurance company.

In connection with the formation of the new firm, Mr. Hooper states that his new association will in no way affect his connection with the Phagan case, and he will continue to personally assist the solicitor general in the prosecution, while his firm will have no connection with the case.

Mr. Goldstein, the junior member of the new firm, is a graduate of the University of Georgia and of Yale. In four years’ practice here he has established an enviable record at the local bar.
