Thank you to the ABOTA Fort Lauderdale Board for their assistance and in particular, Todd Baker for originally suggesting the idea. This was a team effort and I ask that you please share this experience with your colleagues. Thank you additionally to the support we had for this program from ABOTA Chapters throughout Florida, but especially our neighbors in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade.
Judge Tuter, Judge Butchko and Judge Rowe, thank you for giving us your time, and insight as to what the future holds for civil jury trials during Covid-19. This isn't going away, and we hope that this program opened your eyes to the reality that this is a way to move our cases and not have them delayed unnecessarily for years.
As Judge Butchko said, "We can't let this pandemic stop justice." Sadly, it has, and we all must act so this does not continue to the detriment of our practices and our clients.
I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Please support www.turkey-giveaway.org for those less fortunate. I am proud to tell you that our organization donated $2,500 to this wonderful cause and I hope you will join us in donating what you can to help the needy in our community.
Please reach out to me anytime if you have any ideas to improve ABOTA Fort Lauderdale, or any programs that can help our legal community.
ABOTA Fort Lauderdale is participating in Steve Jaffe's annual Turkey Giveaway to the needy. This is a wonderful program that Steve and his friends have been doing for 11 years, and is more important than ever during this pandemic. ABOTA Fort Lauderdale will contribute up to $2,500 max if our members can contribute at least $2,500. I encourage you to click on this link and watch the video. We are very proud to be involved in this project, and we are far more fortunate than some, especially in 2020. Please be generous and make a donation to this amazing project (CLICK HERE)
