However, fair is fair.
Judge Wolfson received a prestigious honor Thursday from the Florida Bar: The Judge William Hoeveler Judicial Professionalism award. This is no puff piece. This is an award that means what it says and it is earned.
Congrats to Judge Wolfson, who indeed deserves this award:
Press Release from the Florida Bar: Yesterday at the Florida Bar Judicial Luncheon, Eleventh Circuit Judge Andrea R. Wolfson was named the recipient of the William M. Hoeveler Judicial Professionalism Award, given annually by The Florida Bar’s Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism and the Standing Committee on Professionalism. The purpose of the award is to recognize an active judge who best exemplifies strength of character, service, and competence as a jurist, lawyer, and public servant. Judge Wolfson demonstrates the ideals of professionalism and justice while inspiring others to do the same, according to the center. Early in her career she established a reputation as “courteous, professional, well-prepared, respectful, and fair…never compromising her ethics,” said Rebecca Bandy, director of the Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism. Judge Wolfson is currently assigned to criminal court, mentors young attorneys, and serves in many capacities in the local and legal community. She also serves as co-chair of the 11th Judicial Circuit Professionalism Committee, teaches a mock trial course at the new judges' colleges each year, and speaks to voluntary bar associations and various organization about the mandatory professionalism requirements implemented by the Florida Supreme Court.
