Jim Felman Wins Earl W. Kintner Distinguished Service Award
James Felman, Past President of the Tampa Bay Chapter of the FBA, has received the Earl W. Kintner Award for Distinguished Service from the FBA. This national award is presented annually to an FBA member who has displayed outstanding achievement, distinguished leadership, and participation in the activities of the association’s chapters, sections, and divisions throughout the nation over a career of service. The prestigious award honors the late National President Earl W. Kintner, whose two terms (1956-57 and 1958-59) and continued service to the association and its affiliated organizations (president of the Foundation of the FBA and the Federal Bar Building Corporation) serve as the highest standard of dedicated service. Jim is known throughout the Tampa Bay Chapter for his tireless service on the Board, his self-deprecating wit, and his dedication to helping his fellow Federal Bar Association members. Jim spent many years building the chapter’s Federal Sentencing Guidelines Seminar into one of the most well-respected CLE programs in the federal criminal bar. We congratulate Jim on this well-deserved recognition.
