Sarasota Attorney and Florida Supreme Court certified mediator Kathi “Kate” Halvorsen was awarded the Judge John M. Scheb Professionalism Award in a recent ceremony at Marina Jack Restaurant. The Judge John M. Scheb is given annually to a Sarasota County attorney who exemplifies professionalism in his or her day-to-day practice. The recipient is selected by secret ballot of the Masters of Inn. Kate is a well-deserving recipient as she emulates the outstanding professionalism of our inn’s founder, Judge Scheb. She is the past president of the Sarasota County Bar Association and the Sarasota Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers. Halvorsen serves as the president of the Judge John M. Scheb America Inn of Court from 2012-2013 and has been a longtime member and contributor.
