Workers’ Compensation Inn of Court Formed and Named in Memory of Boyd & Jenerette, P.A. Partner
September 13, 2007 by boydjenerette on News
In August of 2007, the charter on a new American Inn of Court was granted, forming an Inn devoted to workers’ compensation. The Inn, named in memory of former Boyd & Jenerette, P.A. partner E. Robert Williams, becomes one of just two Inns throughout the country devoted to preserving high ideals in the practice of workers’ compensation. As the charter was granted, the theme of all speakers, which included Florida Bar President Hank Coxe, was that there was no better person whom the Inn could be named for, as E. Robert Williams embodied every standard that was the Inn’s purpose to instill of its members. Those inducted into the Inn included several judges, both locally and on the appellate court which hears workers’ compensation appeals. Also inducted were three Boyd & Jenerette, P.A. attorneys: Benford Samuels (who was instrumental in the formation of the Inn and holds a leadership position with the Inn), Mark Eckels, and Robert E. Williams (the son of E. Robert Williams). The Inn will gather regularly to discuss the issues of the day in the world of workers’ compensation, and to offer a platform for the mentoring of young practitioners.
