Nominations are sought for the Raymond Ehrlich Trial Advocacy Award, which will be presented on April 23 at the third annual Raymond Ehrlich Trial Advocacy Seminar. The seminar, which was a tremendous success last year, honors former Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Ehrlich for his contributions as a trial lawyer and judge. The Seminar emphasizes the attributes that made Justice Ehrlich a successful trial advocate with the hope of perpetuating those ideas.

The Ehrlich Trial Advocacy Award will recognize annually a lawyer from the local legal community whose career has embodied those qualities to which litigators aspire.

The Award Committee will evaluate applicants based on the qualities that made Justice Ehrlich a role model. These qualities include:

• Steadfast obedience to ethics

• Thorough preparation

• Respect to all participants in

the legal system, always

• Even-tempered

• Aggressive

• Professional

• Driven by what is right, not by

fees or billable hours

• Discerning

• Scholar

• A mentor and willing assistance to

those in need.

• All applicants from last year will be

reconsidered for the 2004 Ehrlich Award.

Please submit letter of nomination by the close of business on April 9 to: The Trial Advocacy Award Committee, c/o Donna McGavic, Brennan, Manna, & Diamond, 76 S. Laura St., Ste. 1700, Jacksonville, FL 32202.
