    Sarah Connolly serves as an outside general counsel for healthcare companies that need a lawyer on their team, but don't need a full time in-house. She also speaks and trains on important trending legal topics, including most recently "Reopening Responsibly" during this pandemic.  She's been training her clients nationally- including the heavily impacted senior living industry- on how and when to safely reopen, and what to do when an employee is impacted by COVID infection. She’s also been working closely with those on the front lines fighting this virus, including healthcare professionals, state and local epidemiologists, and even directly with the CDC. She'll discuss the most up to date best practices for infection control, testing, and for legal documentation and risk mitigation that you can implement in your practice and your personal life.

    Sarah is the Founder and CEO of Sarah Connolly Legal (formerly The Legal Platform), based in St. Pete and Tampa but with a national practice, and is a proud Founding Member at this month's sponsor, Liberty Law Suites. Join this session for practical and actionable advice on how to keep yourself, your loved ones, and your team as safe as possible during these uncertain times.

    At this time, since the University Club is not able to accommodate our in-person Monthly Membership Luncheons due to the COVID-19 constraints for our health and safety, we are offering to both TBPA Members and Guests the opportunity for 1 CLE Unit Credit via Recorded Video Presentation. Once the University Club is open to full capacity, we will continue to offer a Video Only RSVP Registration option at a special rate to both Members and Guests, however, limiting the number to 2 registrations in any given year for Guests since this will be a new TBPA Membership Benefit. We encourage you to join TBPA and enjoy the many benefits membership offers. Please keep healthy and we hope to see you soon!

    TBPA is no longer accepting reservations via email or mail. 

    TBPA reserves the right to change/substitute speakers, presentations, or topics as necessary due to unexpected circumstances. Cancellations for paid-in-full registrations prior to the RSVP Deadline will be refunded.  After the RSVP Deadline, no refunds will be provided and payment in full will be due since the process of providing secured video link with cle certificate will have commenced. 

    Cancellation correspondence MUST be sent to


    Special "Thank You" to this month's TBPA CLE Sponsors:

    As a solo or small firm lawyer, there are many benefits to owning and operating one’s own firm, as well as challenges. Liberty Law Suites was established by founder, Sheryl Hunter, due to her desire to facilitate growth of other solo and small firms with whom she can collaborate by bringing together the best of “big law” and “small law.”  Liberty Law Suites was created to be A More Perfect Union of Lawyers.

    Part co-working and part growth-accelerator, Liberty Law Suites provides an array of member benefits.  With a limited number of private, fully furnished offices available in an ideal location in South Tampa, as well as virtual memberships with access to our two well-appointed conference rooms and flex-use office, educational and networking events, and participation in the Liberty Collective (an advisory board of members).  We have also negotiated exclusive member benefits from vendors who provide services we all need.

    Liberty Law Suites brings entrepreneurship to lawyers and equips attorneys with tools to run the business of law. Our mission is to enable attorneys who have an unyielding desire to own their own firm to experience the pros of professional freedom and business ownership, without the downsides that typically accompany solo and small firm practice. Those cons include isolation, loss of access to “the partner down the hall” for guidance, being overwhelmed by administrative demands that cut into billable work and having no steady referrals of new work or clients.

    At Liberty Law Suites, we believe you should have your own personal and professional brand, practice law as your authentic self, be able to work for clients you covet, charge whatever rate you feel is appropriate, work where and when you want, and build your own book of business. You can have this as a young attorney or as a seasoned attorney – if you have the support of a community created just for you, by someone like you. Contact Katelyn Dougherty, Dir. Operations at 

    Milestone Reporting Company began its journey over 30 years ago when The Reporting Company first opened its doors to the court reporting community in 1979. Pioneering a new standard of uncompromising personal service, The Reporting Company's popularity became widespread through Central Florida, deeming them "the company with a personal touch." Unparalleled quality, personalized service, and a genuine understanding of the clients' needs made The Reporting Company a leader in the industry. In 2005, Milestone Reporting, Inc. was established with a vision to become the industry leader in technology, innovation, and progressive thinking. Both companies became pillars in the industry, upholding the same high standards and providing the same quality of service to their clientele. Realizing the power that can be created if both companies worked together rather than against each other, they knew it was time to do something different. In 2011, Milestone Reporting Company was created with the combined talents and ingenuity of both companies.

    Milestone Reporting Company continues to seek out cost-effective measures to best service our clients, while providing them with the tools they need to properly litigate their cases. Being leaders in technology, Milestone Reporting Company stays ahead of the technological curve while continuing to provide the personalized service you and your clients deserve. Milestone Reporting is proud to be the longest standing court reporting agency in Central Florida. With an understanding of our clients' needs, we will provide you with the support tools, and products to successfully litigate your case. Contact Evelyn Quintana at or Allison Jackson at
