Eric R. Elms, of Fisher Rushmer, P.A. in Orlando, a practicing lawyer since 2011, was recently recognized by the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors as the “Most Productive Board Member.”
To determine who wins the award, the Board considers what work the member has done during the course of the year. This award is bestowed to one governor throughout the state, making it a highly-prestigious accomplishment.
“I am honored and humbled to be nominated and elected to win The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors Most Productive Board Member. I sincerely appreciate the support and confidence my fellow Board members have in me and my work product,” said Elms. “I am also grateful for the opportunity to bring this award back to the Ninth Circuit, where we have plenty of young lawyers who work tirelessly each day to make our legal community better.”
Elms has served as an elected governor of the Young Lawyers Division Board for The Florida Bar for the past four years. After being elected one of three Ninth Circuit representatives for The Florida Bar Young Lawyer’s Division Board of Governors, Elms’ duties include analyzing the legal issues and responsibilities facing fellow constituents.
One of his hallmark achievements as a board member is revamping the Practicing with Professionalism Program and taking the program online for constituents.
“Surely, I could not have had a productive year without the Practicing with Professionalism committee and the help of the Young Lawyers Division executive leadership. In the coming year, I look forward to working even harder for the Young Lawyers Division constituents, for underprivileged Florida citizens, and for my colleagues on The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors,” said Elms.
