The Florida Bar will honor 447 attorneys for 50 years of dedication to the practice of law — and another 398 attorneys who were unable to be recognized last year — during a luncheon Friday. Judge Rosemary Barkett will be the featured speaker.

The senior counselors program recognizes current active and inactive Florida Bar members in good standing who have practiced law for 50 years or more and have not previously been recognized by The Florida Bar for this accomplishment.

Join President Dori Foster-Morales as we celebrate the silver linings from the past year. This event will be outside, so casual dress is a must — no suits and ties allowed!
