Listen, I’m happy to see former Judge Jorge Perez joining up with a fine shop like Gordon Rees, but maybe their PR people could find a better spot for the announcement than something called “Earth Times”:
Former Circuit Court Judge Jorge J. Perez, an attorney with extensive litigation and creditors’ rights experience in state, federal and administrative courts, has joined the Miami office of Gordon & Rees LLP as a partner. Perez will chair the firm’s Receivership Group.
“Joining Gordon & Rees is an important opportunity for me to bring the benefits of the firm’s national platform to my clients,” Perez said. “I am excited to be part of the expansion of the Miami office and I look forward to helping to grow the firm’s services throughout the Southeast.”
Robert M. Mayer, managing partner of Gordon & Rees’s Miami office which opened in December 2009 said, “Having spent my entire career practicing in Florida, I am very familiar with former Judge Perez’s impressive credentials. Jorge is a remarkable attorney and model for others to follow. I am both delighted to welcome him as a colleague and honored that he has chosen Gordon & Rees.”
Perez was appointed to the Bench in May 2003 by Governor Jeb Bush. After presiding overly nearly 100 Jury and Bench trials to verdict or ruling, he retired from the Bench in 2007 to join the Miami law firm of Tew Cardenas where he developed a substantial practice serving as a receiver in numerous matters.
Actually, Earth Times is kinda interesting.
Here’s a story on Jack Nicholson’s tribute to Dennis Hopper, and here’s something about Jessica Biel wanting to live on a boat.
Ok, how do I get profiled in Earth Times?
