PALM BEACH COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION BULLE IN WWW.PALMBEACHBAR.ORG | OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION Judicial Profile | JULY-AUG 2018 Annual Installation Banquet by Jean Marie Middleton Judge Carolyn Bell Judge Carolyn Bell is no stranger to public service. Her love for public service is evident in her conversation and career history so it is no surprise that she has continued her legal vocation as a Circuit Court Judge. Prior to her appointment to the bench, Judge Bell spent the majority of her career serving as a federal prosecutor for the United States Department of Justice. Judge Bell began at DOJ in Washington, D.C., where she worked as a Senior Trial Attorney for the Tax Division, Criminal Section. In that capacity, she traveled the country prosecuting all kinds of crimes with a tax angle. Her cases included everything from individuals who willfully failed to pay their taxes, to the silent owners of a Las Vegas Casino, to community leaders profiting from one of the largest drug organizations in Southern California. While in Washington, Judge Bell also served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney prosecuting street crimes, and on a detail in the Deputy Attorney General’s Office. cont pg 12 Congratulations to Greg Huber who was recently sworn into office as the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s 96th President during our annual installation banquet at the beautiful Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach.
