While a desire for attention may have pushed her into the legal arena, it has been respect, not attention, that Rufe Dorsey Edwards McCombs has cultivated throughout her fifty-five year legal career. Overcoming impediments of her own - stuttering, blindness, tuberculosis, and cancer - and roadblocks from those who refuse to accept a woman as an attorney, McCombs relied upon two things for success: an abiding faith and a devotion to work. A sense of humor prevailed where faith and hard work failed. Currently serving as a Senior Superior Court Judge for the State of Georgia, McCombs looks back at her life and remarks, "If you live long enough you begin to regret it".
