The law firm of Thompson, Sizemore, Gonzalez & Hearing is proud to announce that Kevin D. Johnson received a Florida Bar President's Award of Merit at The Florida Bar's 65th Annual Convention last week at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton.
Gregory W. Coleman, the 2014-15 Florida Bar president thanked Johnson for leading the creation of The Florida Bar’s new Practice Resource Institute, or PRI.
While Johnson was serving as chair of the General Practice Solo and Small Law Firm Section of The Florida Bar in 2013-14, he was asked to serve on the Vision 2016 Technology Committee. In May 2014, Coleman, then president-elect of the Bar, asked him to chair the newly created Special Committee on Technology/Office Tools and Resources with a fast-track assignment: to assemble a toolbox of technology solutions for Bar members and create a website presence with practice information and assistance.
“Within just a few months, Kevin and his committee were ready to unveil The Florida Bar’s new Practice Resource Institute,” Coleman said. “This is an accomplishment that is unheard of in Bar years. The new PRI platform is one of the best member benefits we have ever created.”
Johnson is a shareholder in the Tampa firm Thompson, Sizemore, Gonzalez & Hearing, P.A., where he concentrates his practice on employment law.
