Eric Reed, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office and President of the Orange County Bar Association (OCBA), spoke at the annual “Morning at the State Courthouse” event, providing insight for new attorneys and recent law graduates for practicing in Orange and Osceola County.
Held at the Orange County Courthouse, the annual event is organized by the OCBA Young Lawyers Section, inviting law students, legal staff, young and experienced lawyers alike to hear from local attorneys and the Ninth Judicial Circuit judges regarding practical advice for practicing in Orange and Osceola County courts. Eric greeted event attendees in a welcome address before the “Morning at the State Courthouse” panel sessions began. To assist participants in becoming more familiar with the local courts, the event featured a tour of the Courthouse and three panel sessions discussing how to work with judges, using technology inside and outside the courtroom, as well as a judicial panel focusing on practical tips.
The OCBA Young Lawyers Section (YLS) is comprised of more than 750 attorneys practicing in many areas of law throughout Central Florida, who engage in relationship building, charitable service and professional growth through opportunities provided through the YLS.
