Gunster is pleased to announce that shareholder Greg Schwinghammer has been reappointed by Governor DeSantis to serve a four-year term on the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Fourth District Court of Appeal.
The Fourth District Court of Appeal handles appeals and extraordinary writ cases from the Fifteenth, Seventeenth, and Nineteenth Judicial Circuits, which are composed of Palm Beach, Broward, St. Lucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties.
From 2012 to 2020, Schwinghammer served on the Judicial Nominating Commission for the 15th Judicial Circuit in Palm Beach County, and chaired that Commission for five years. In 2020, he was appointed to the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Fourth District Court of Appeal to fill a vacancy. His new appointment runs from 2022 to 2026.
Greg Schwinghammer is a shareholder who joined Gunster in 1996. Before his legal career, Greg was a cavalry officer in the U.S. Army, serving in Germany and Kuwait.
Greg’s practice involves complex business litigation, bankruptcy litigation, and toxic tort and environmental litigation. He represents clients throughout Florida and, when needed, around the country. Greg has tried cases at all levels — from local administrative hearings, to county court commercial evictions, to arbitration, to jury trials in circuit and federal courts.
