Amanda Keller named President-Elect of Hillsborough County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division

Porter Wright is proud to announce that attorney Amanda Keller has been named President-Elect of the Hillsborough County Bar Association (HCBA) Young Lawyers Division (YLD). This three-year commitment will see Amanda serving as President-Elect from 2024-2025, President from 2025-2026, and Immediate Past President from 2026-2027.

The HCBA boasts one of the largest and strongest young lawyers divisions in Florida. The YLD’s mission is to support the initiatives and goals of the HCBA, promote professionalism and ethical conduct, provide guidance and support to new lawyers, offer educational opportunities, organize programs and events of interest to young lawyers, and encourage community involvement. The division’s success is rooted in its membership and the support each dedicated young lawyer provides. Membership is open to Hillsborough county lawyers that are younger than 36 or with less than five years of experience as an attorney.

Amanda’s election follows a series of notable achievements recently, including receiving the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award from the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers, the 36 Under 36 Professionalism Award from the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, her appointment to the Thirteenth Circuit Unlicensed Practice of Law Committee “A” by the Florida Supreme Court, and her addition to the Forms and Legislative Subcommittee of the Florida Bar Civil Procedure Rules committee.

“Amanda is an excellent candidate to become the future President of the HCBA Young Lawyers Division,” notes Lawrence Ingram, partner-in-charge of Porter Wright’s Tampa office. “Her enthusiasm to support a local bar and mentor attorneys makes Amanda an incredible leader and I can’t wait to see what she does in this new role and beyond.”

Amanda is a senior associate in the firm’s Litigation and Reinsurance practice groups. She litigates complex commercial and business disputes involving trade secrets and restrictive covenants, professional liability defense and third-party insurance coverage. Amanda received her J.D. from University of Florida Levin College of Law, cum laude, and her undergraduate degree from Florida State University.
