October 20, 2016 - William Booth is the Supervising Attorney for the Juvenile Advocacy Project. Upon graduating from the University of Florida, Bill worked in advertising for eight years before attending law school at Nova Southeastern University. He has worked at Legal Aid since 2001. Bill was hired by Michelle Hankey, who started the Project with Bob Bertisch. Before working at Legal Aid, Bill was a personal injury litigator. The skills he learned as a litigator have helped the Juvenile Advocacy Project clients tremendously. Bill has chaired several statewide committees regarding children’s issues and has argued before the Florida Supreme Court. He is thankful to Bob Bertisch for trusting him and for creating an environment at Legal Aid where the attorneys are encouraged to be innovative in establishing new initiatives to meet the emerging needs of their clients. Bill will be leaving Legal Aid in November to move to New York, he will be missed. We wish him the best in his new ventures.
