Please consider supporting my friend and colleague, Michael J. Higer, in his candidacy for President-Elect of The Florida Bar.

Michael is an experienced litigator and trial lawyer who has devoted his practice to commercial litigation and civil trial work involving a wide variety of matters. The Best Lawyers in America®, Florida Trend magazine’s Florida Legal Elite™ and Florida Super Lawyers have all repeatedly recognized Michael in his practice areas. Michael is widely regarded as one of the architects of the business courts established in Florida. The Florida Bar, Business Law Section recognized him as its Outstanding Member in 2005, and he is a former Chair of that Section.

Additionally, Michael has served on the Board of Governors for over 7 years. He is a former Chair of the Business Law Section and other major committees of The Bar, including the Budget Committee, the Program Evaluation Committee and the Disciplinary Review Committee. Michael presently serves on the Strategic Planning Committee and the Executive Committee of The Bar. In addition to the foregoing accomplishments, Michael is an exceptional person who deserves the opportunity to further his contributions to the Florida Bar as its future President.

Please join me in supporting Michael by signing and returning the Nominating Petition, attached here, to Kristin Drecktrah Paz (kristin.drecktrah@gommsmith.com) as soon as possible (early next week if possible) as the window for qualifying is just about to open.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
