An article published on the Sun Sentinel’s website today discussed the 15th Juducial District’s Professionalism Panel, which hears complaints against Palm Beach County attorneys. The panel was created pursuant to a June 2013 order by the Florida Supreme Court.
Gunster attorney Roger Feicht was interviewed for the article.
As chair of the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Judicial Spokesman Subcommittee from 2012-2014, Feicht helps to conduct the annual interviews of county, circuit and appellate judges in Palm Beach County.
