Attorney Bernard Walsh Honors Fallen Officers With Manatee County Area Law Enforcement

Civil Trial Attorney Bernard F. Walsh of Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh expressed solidarity with members of Manatee County Law Enforcement Honoring Officers who gave their lives in the line of duty.

Bradenton Florida, May 17th – Attorney Bernard F. Walsh, joined with members of the legal and law enforcement community to honor fallen officers at the 34th Annual Fraternal Order of Police Memorial. Recognizing the sacrifices made by Police and State Troopers and their families across Florida, the ceremony held by the Manatee Lodge 70 Fraternal Order of Police was part of a larger event that included other law enforcement organizations all over Florida.

Also in attendance at the tribute were several officials from the State, County and Florida Highway Patrol including Manatee County Sheriff Rick Wells, Florida Highway Patrol Major John Baumann, and State Attorney Ed Brodsky.

Attorney Bernard Walsh of the Bradenton Office of Goldman Babboni Fernandez and Walsh had this comment about the memorial service, “The bedrock of of a free and prosperous society is a fair impartial rule of law. However not even that would be possible without the safety and security we have all come to take for granted. That knowledge that we do not have to worry about a lawless society allows us to live well and help our loved ones prosper and pursue happiness. Yet that security comes at a cost, and our fellow Floridians who make up the police, Highway Patrol and other law enforcement organizations place themselves in harms way every day to maintain our way of life. It is important for us to honor the many officers who have fallen in the line of duty, giving the ultimate sacrifice to protect the public. While this is a somber event, I am heartened that so many others have come together in recognition of the heroic actions that members of law enforcement have done, and showing their support for the men and women who place themselves in harms way every day for the rest of us.”

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
