Following the retirement of Chief Judge F. Gates Peed, local lawyer and community leader Matt Hube announced his candidacy for Superior Court Judge in the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit which is comprised of Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins, and Screven Counties.
“We are so grateful for Judge Peed and his tireless service to our community,” said Hube. “On the bench, he was unwavering in his commitment to fairness, justice, and public safety. Judge Peed is a true public servant and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
“With the retirement of Judge Peed, we have big shoes to fill in the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit. I am running for Superior Court Judge because I have nearly twenty-five years of experience and an unmatched track record of honesty and integrity.”
Hube attended Georgia Southern University and graduated with a degree in Finance in 1995 before completing his legal studies at Mercer University School of Law. Hube began practicing law in Statesboro in 2000. He has represented individuals in thousands of domestic, criminal, and civil cases in Superior Courts throughout Southeast Georgia.
“Our Superior Courts are the center of the Judicial System in Georgia. I have the legal and real-world experience to be incredibly effective, the courage to make the tough decisions, and the right judicial temperament to ensure that everyone is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
Matt is a former Adjunct Professor of Business Law at Georgia Southern University and member of the City of Statesboro Alcohol Advisory Board. He serves the community as the Treasurer of the Bulloch County Historical Society, Board Member of the Coastal Georgia Council, Boy Scouts of America, and provides pro bono legal representation for indigent clients through Georgia Legal Services.
“I would be honored to use my decades of experience as a lawyer and community advocate in service to the four counties that encompass the Ogeechee Circuit. Together, we can keep our families safe and our future bright.”
A resident of Statesboro, Matt Hube is married to the former Linda Hamby. The couple has one son, Nicholas Hamby (27).
