Ceci Berman Named Chair of Florida’s Civil Procedure Rules Committee
Brannock Humphries & Berman shareholder Ceci Berman has been appointed by the incoming President of the Florida Bar, Dori Foster-Morales, to serve as Chair of the prestigious committee that is responsible for proposing amendments to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.
Ms. Berman has steadily risen through the leadership ranks since her appointment to the Civil Procedure Rules Committee in 2016. She currently serves as a Vice Chair of the Committee and as the Chair of the Drafting Subcommittee. She also previously served as Secretary of the Committee. Effective July 1, she will now assume the top leadership role for the forty-six-member Committee.
“I am grateful for the trust of the Bar President-Elect and the other members of the Committee,” Ms. Berman said. “I am looking forward to a collaborative and productive year ahead.”
Bar service is nothing new for Ms. Berman. She is a past Chair of the Appellate Practice Section and previously served two terms on the Appellate Court Rules Committee. She is now in her second consecutive three-year term on the Civil Procedure Rules Committee, which is the body responsible for overseeing the procedural rules governing most civil actions brought in Florida’s trial courts.
