Florida Justice Association Honors Celene Humphries With Legend Award
For the second time in her distinguished career, Celene Humphries has been specially honored by the Florida Justice Association, an organization that has fought for more than 50 years to strengthen and uphold Florida’s civil justice system by protecting the rights of all citizens and consumers.
Over the years, the FJA has bestowed the EAGLE Legend Award on an esteemed group of trial lawyers who have shown exceptional leadership and tremendous generosity with their time, dedication, and commitment. During this year’s Annual Convention, Celene Humphries became one of the few appellate lawyers to receive this recognition.
Almost ten years ago, the FJA awarded Ms. Humphries the S. Victor Tipton Award for her superior achievement in legal writing and advocacy. Now, she is the recipient of the EAGLE Legend Award as well. This honor commemorates an individual’s lifetime contribution to the FJA and the causes it promotes. As an appellate lawyer, for Celene, this has meant serving as a long-time officer of the FJA’s appellate section, being an involved and committed member of the FJA’s amicus committee, and creating (and chairing) the FJA’s Case Law Insider seminar, which features insight and analysis from FJA appellate lawyers on appellate decisions that are important to FJA members. Celene has also dedicated countless hours to publishing articles for the FJA Journal, writing comprehensive seminar materials for FJA members, and presenting seminars whenever needed (including for the Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association).
Brannock & Humphries is very proud of Celene and appreciates the FJA for giving her this much-deserved recognition for her hard work on behalf of Florida’s citizens and consumers.
