10th Judicial   

         President's Message



Welcome back to the Lakeland Bar Association!


I am both humbled and honored to serve as the President of this amazing organization for the upcoming year, and I thank you all for trusting me to serve in this important position. Rest assured I will work hard to serve the organization to the best of my ability while promoting the professionalism and comradery we all enjoy within the 10th Judicial Circuit.

      Last year was another successful year for the LBA under the guidance of our Immediate Past President, Kevin Humphries.  I want to thank Kevin for his dedication to the LBA which did not go unnoticed by me or our membership.  While I served on the board last year, Kevin was easily accessible and always responsive.  He helped make everything run smoothly.  These are qualities I admire and will seek to adhere to. I also want to sincerely thank the members of our board and of course our very own, Lisa Oliver, for helping make this our Circuit’s largest and most active bar organization.

      Our membership really is something special. Recently I attended the 2017 Voluntary Bar Leaders Conference where I learned valuable skills for which I can apply to my tenure as President.  Aside from learning new and unique ways to help lead and overcome difficulties, I was able to meet other lawyers and judges from around the state who volunteer for their local bar associations. Hearing about the other organizations made me once again realize how great our membership is and how lucky I am to be able to serve with our board.

      We have a lot to look forward to this year.  We will again have our monthly luncheon meetings at the Club at Eaglebroooke, now on the second Friday of each month beginning in September. Also, we will have two social events including our Past Presidents’ BBQ on October 26th at the Sorosis Building and our Bench/Bar reception on January 11th.  For all of the golfers in our group, we will once again have our annual golf tournament at Eaglebrooke Golf Course.  These events bring together the bench and bar which is something I cherish about practicing law in the 10th Judicial Circuit.  Mark your calendar now for all of our upcoming events.  It is going to be another great year.
