In his remarks accepting the award, Keith spoke about the legal profession being an honorable one and emphasized the need for legal professionals to be involved with the community, especially the youth of the community. Matthews Eastmoore shareholder Patricia Crauwels, Membership Chair of the Sarasota/Bradenton Chapter of FLABOTA, attended the awards ceremony with Keith. Matthews Eastmoore is very proud of Keith for all of his efforts in the community and for FLABOTA recognizing him for service.
