MIAMI, FL—Fowler White Burnett is pleased to announce that Guy Kamealoha Noa has been selected to serve a three-year term on the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee “F.”
Noa is an Associate in Fowler White’s Insurance Practice Group where he focuses his practice in the areas of trucking accident defense and catastrophic and personal injury claims. He currently serves as Immediate Past-President on the Board of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of South Florida. He received his Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from St. Thomas University School of Law and his Bachelor’s degree in Economics, magna cum laude, from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Grievance committees are made up of volunteer members, at least one-third of whom are not lawyers. Each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits has at least one such committee. The grievance committee reviews complaints with much the same purpose as a grand jury. That is, the committee decides, after a case is submitted to them by bar counsel, 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.
