16th Annual Judges & Lawyers Event with Gill S. Freeman
|Venue:||Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU|
Gill S. Freeman sat on the Miami Dade Circuit Court for nearly 20 years. She was the first judge to preside over the Complex Business Division, serving there for five years. She also has served several rotations in the family, criminal, and general civil divisions of the trial court.
Prior to her appointment to the bench, Ms. Freeman practiced commercial, insurance, securities, and family law for twenty years at a major South Florida law firm. Her move to the bench was largely driven by her desire to effectuate change and fairness in the court system. Ms. Freeman is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards honoring her for her dedication and commitment to fairness, diversity, and the elimination of bias in the legal profession. Most recently, the Young Lawyers Section of The Florida Bar named her “Jurist of the Year” for her outstanding contributions.
Upon her retirement from the 11th Judicial Circuit Court, Ms. Freeman joined JAMS, the largest private alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provider in the world. Ms. Freeman will discuss the History of Women Lawyers in Florida.
