Whoops!  I meant, Five Law School Graduates Enter a THE Bar.  It sounds like the start to a corny joke, but it’s not. 

We are delighted to announce that five of our first year associates were sworn into the Florida Bar this afternoon. 

The Honorable Ellen Leesfield administered the Oath of Admission in a private ceremony in her courtroom.  Judge Leesfield spoke to our newest associates about maintaining professional integrity and developing a strong professional reputation early in their careers. 

The post-ceremony lunch with family and spouses was a nice way to celebrate a big day.  Congrats to our newest bar members!
