Yueh-Mei Kim Nutter and Kenneth A. Gordon, partners at the full-service law firm of Brinkley Morgan, will serve as workshop leaders for The Florida Bar Family Law Section’s 2017 Trial Advocacy Seminar on July 20-23 in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The purpose of the three-day workshop is to help attorneys improve trial skills when preparing and presenting family law cases in court. Completion of the Trial Advocacy Workshop fulfills one of the trials required for application to become board certified in martial and family law.  All workshop leaders are Florida Bar Board Certified Marital and Family Law attorneys.

In addition to being board certified, Nutter and Gordon are both Fellows of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.  Nutter is also recognized by the Florida Supreme Court as a certified Family Mediator, certified Appellate Mediator, and certified Guardian Ad Litem.

She also previously served as Chair of the Attorney Ad Litem & Guardian Ad Litem Ad Hoc Committee for the Family Law Section of The Florida Bar and helped create a new program designed to train people seeking to be appointed as a Guardian Ad Litem in family law court proceedings. She now owns and operates that program, called Speaking for Kids, Inc.  She concentrates her practice in the areas of family law, civil litigation, guardianships, and probate and estate litigation.
