While I am currently back on the bench as a State of Florida Judge of Compensation Claims, when I knew/observed Mr. Evans, I was a practicing atty. [of counsel] in the Litigation Section with his present law firm, Greenberg Traurig, in the Miami, Florida office. As a Judge, Mr. Evans has not appeared before me in court.
