The eighth annual Staying in the Game program, hosted by the Tampa Bay Chapter Of The Federal Bar Association, was a huge success. This year’s theme, “Put me in, Coach!” featured a fireside chat with Judge Mary Scriven and Judge Mac McCoy, followed by a practitioner panel moderated by Judge Jessica Costello and featuring Maria Chapa Lopez, Jon Philipson, and Jessica West. The presentation focused on the importance of bringing one’s authentic self to the legal profession. The event was hosted in cooperation with the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers; George Edgecomb Bar Association; and Hillsborough County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. Despite a very stormy day, turnout was near capacity.
Guerra & Partners has proudly supported the Staying in the Game program since its inception in 2015. The Tampa Bay Chapter of the Federal Bar Association is the premier bar association serving federal practitioners and the federal judiciary and includes federal lawyers and judges throughout the Tampa Bay area.
