HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – There’s a new face amongst Madison County judges, but it’s a familiar one.  Today, Chris Comer was sworn in as a Circuit Judge.

Comer has practiced law in Madison County for more than 10 years.  Several judges were in attendance, and retired Judge Loyd Little administered the oath of office.

“It is an honor to serve the citizens of Madison County,” said Comer.  “I am looking forward to serving the people of Madison County by ensuring that our citizens are treated fairly and that the law is followed.  My career as a judicial clerk, prosecutor and litigator has prepared me for this next opportunity.  I will work hard and do my part to see that justice is served in my courtroom.”

Comer served as a clerk for Judge Little, and has also worked as a prosecutor and civil attorney.  He is a past Secretary for the Huntsville/Madison County Bar Association and is a graduate of the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum.
