Fort Myers, Fla. – Amanda Mitteer Bartley, an attorney with the national full-service law firm Kelley Kronenberg, has been elected to serve on The Florida Bar’s Twentieth Circuit Grievance Committee. As a member of the Grievance Committee, she will be part of the group responsible for continuing the investigation of possible lawyer misconduct referred by Bar discipline attorneys.
The Bar’s local grievance committees are composed of lawyer and non-lawyer volunteers, and each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits has at least one such committee. These grievance committees are tasked with determining whether there is probable cause to believe a lawyer violated the professional conduct rules imposed by the Supreme Court of Florida, and whether discipline against the lawyer appears to be warranted.
Ms. Bartley, who is based in Kelley Kronenberg’s Fort Myers office, focuses her practice on Workers’ Compensation litigation defense on behalf of insurance companies and employers. In addition to her work with The Florida Bar, she serves as Recruitment Chair for the Lee County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, Chair of the Lee County Bar Association Social Committee, and she is involved with the Calusa American Inn of Court.
