Every attendee stood to their feet after Fulton County Assistant Attorney April Ross thanked the Board of Commissioners for presenting her with a proclamation in the last board meeting of the year.
The Fulton County Board of Commissioners recognized Ross, an Assistant Attorney for the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, for her volunteer work with victims of gun and domestic violence.
In 2014, Attorney Ross’ life was drastically changed after being ambushed and shot multiple times by her estranged husband. Ross’ miraculous recovery has allowed her to volunteer at the Shepherd Center and work with other victims of gun violence. She shares her story of survival with the victims she helps in an effort to truly make a difference in their daily lives.
Attorney Ross returned to work in November and has been moving full steam ahead. She is currently assigned to the trial unit with a specific focus on domestic violence cases.
