FBA Luncheon at the Hyatt – Hon. Laurel M. Isicoff & Hon. Patricia A. Seitz
On Wednesday October 14, 2015, in conjunction with Pro Bono week, we were honored to welcome the Honorable Laurel M. Isicoff, United States Bankruptcy Judge, and the Honorable Patricia A. Seitz, United States Senior District Court Judge to our first luncheon of the season. Both judges spoke passionately about their commitment to pro bono as well as the benefits and rewards that practitioners can get from participating in pro bono activities. The judges then spoke about the programs their respective courts would have in conjunction with pro bono week at the end of the month, which included training and various opportunities to take a wide range of pro bono cases. Judge Seitz relayed to the audience her experience in championing the notion of pro bono when she was president of the Florida Bar, and Judge Isicoff told a heartfelt story about an individual she represented pro bono when she was formerly in private practice. All in all it was a very engaging and entertaining presentation by both of our esteemed guests. Thank you to Judge Isicoff and Seitz for speaking and thanks to everyone who attended!
