A tribute to Jim Smith upon Retirement

The following is from Judge Steve Rosen:

Jim Smith came to Tampa to do Worker's Compensation defense in 1974 after 2 years working at the Special Disability Trust Fund in Tallahassee. He initially worked at Marlow, Mitzel, and Ortmayer which was a Tampa branch of the Miami-based insurance defense firm. After several years, the firm became known as Shofi, Smith, etc. and a portion of that firm remains viable to date. Around the year 2000, Jim became a sole practitioner handling Worker's Compensation defense exclusively. Not only was Jim an excellent Worker's Compensation defense practitioner, he was involved in many workers compensation oriented organizations. He lectured on workers compensation extensively and authored chapters in various workers compensation publications through the Florida Bar. Jim plans to spend his retirement at home with his wife, Sheila, in the Dade city, Florida area.
