FJA Nominates Two of Our Attorneys for Rising Stars Award

Representing Orlando, the Four Corners, Tampa and Nearby Areas of Florida

The Florida Justice Association (FJA) has announced nominations for the 2016 Founders’ Awards, and we’re happy to share that two of our attorneys have been nominated for the Rising Star Award. Attorneys Vanessa Brice and Jonathan Gilbert are in the running along with three other Florida lawyers to win this prestigious award. Two winners will be announced at the Founders’ Awards Luncheon on Thursday September 29.

The Founders’ Rising Star Award recipients are chosen based on their dedication to the Civil Justice System. These lawyers are outstanding examples of future leaders of the FJA. They have shown great potential and commitment throughout their careers. Only five attorneys in Florida are chosen, and Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter are humbled that two of our lawyers have been selected.

Vanessa Brice officially joined our team of attorneys in August of 2009. Her past experience as a paralegal has given her a unique view into the legal process, and she has repeatedly proven her commitment to our personal injury clients. Brice has been a board member and chair holder of several legal associations including the FJA Young Lawyers Section, Central Florida Trial Lawyers Association and Heart 2 Heart Community Care Homes.

Jonathan Gilbert is an attorney at our law firm in Orlando. He has shown exemplary devotion to our clients harmed due to personal injury and medical malpractice. Gilbert has been published in both the Florida Bar Journal and the FJA Journal. For four straight years now, Gilbert has been named in the Top 40 Under 40 by the National Trial Lawyers. He has also been chosen as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the last two years. Gilbert began his involvement with FJA in 2009 and is currently the Chair of the Young Lawyers Section of the organization.

Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter are driven to helping our clients fight for justice, and we’re honored to have Vanessa Brice and Jonathan Gilbert on our team.
