50-year counselors to be recognized

Attorneys, who have achieved 50 years in the practice, even if they spent part of their careers in other states, can be recognized for their dedication and service.

The Florida Bar will recognize veteran lawyers during a luncheon at the Bar’s Annual Convention, Friday, June 28, at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton. Both 50-year members of The Florida Bar and senior counselors will be recognized at the luncheon.

The senior counselor program, which was recommended by the Out-of-State Division, will recognize current active and inactive Bar members who have practiced law for 50 years and have not previously been recognized for this accomplishment. Participants must write a letter stating their request to be considered for a 50-Year Senior Counselor Award and include a list of all bar memberships held with both start and end dates indicated. The cumulative 50 years in legal practice must have been completed by January 1, 2013, for this year’s honors.

Letters should be addressed to: 50 Year Senior Counselor Award, attention Doris Maffei, The Florida Bar, 651 East Jefferson St., Tallahassee 32399-2300, and must be received no later than Monday, April 15. For more information, contact Maffei at (800) 342-8060, ext. 5770 or email her at [email protected].
