In our service area, Sarasota and Manatee counties, we are fortunate to have a Retired Attorneys Association primarily made up of attorneys from out of state. This group not only provides financial support to our program, but several oftheir members volunteer as approved Emeritus Attorneys. The amount of experience and expertise these attorneys have brought to our program is immeasurable. We have had retired judges, former corporate counsel, law professors, and attorneys from a variety of practice areas who have been approved under this program.
