CLOSED FOR REGISTRATION: Spirit of Giving Luncheon
Thursday, December 8, 2022 – Noon – 1:30 PM
The River Club
The Honorable Harvey E. Schlesinger Spirit of Giving Luncheon will be held on Thursday, December 8, at The River Club. We are pleased to announce that this year’s Spirit of Giving speaker will be State Attorney Melissa Nelson. Ms. Nelson was elected State Attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit in 2017 and re-elected without opposition in 2021. Since taking office, Ms. Nelson has established several smart justice initiatives, including the reform of the juvenile civil citation process and the creation of Florida’s first Conviction Integrity Review. Ms. Nelson will touch on these in her discussion of how the State Attorney’s Office pursues justice in criminal actions, and will highlight the important role of the criminal defense bar in ensuring our system of justice works as it should. In addition to the remarks from Ms. Nelson, the Court will present “Spirit of Giving” awards to lawyers who have gone above and beyond in providing service to those in need. This luncheon is free for members and $30 for non-members.
