Williams Island resident Larry R. Handfield

There are many successful and interesting people who live in the City of Aventura. I think it's important to spotlight individuals that make a difference. The recent article from the Broward Times "Who's Who in Black South Florida: Larry R. Handfield, a humble man of loyalty, generosity and ethics" revealed that Larry Hanfield is an Aventura Florida resident within the 33180 zip code. He's a resident at Williams Island, the luxury condo community in Aventura.

Take a look at the article and learn about one of your neighbors in Aventura. Here's an excerpt from the Broward Times, written BY ADEYELA A. BENNETT

“Gov. Charlie Crist recently appointed our church member, Larry R. Handfield, to be the only minority, the only Miami-Dade County resident, and one of only two Democrats appointed by the governor to serve on the State of Florida Commission on Ethics,” the minister proudly proclaimed.

The congregation of about 200 mostly working-class Bahamians, Caribbean-Americans and African-Americans passionately applauded their brother's accomplishment.
The Florida Senate is scheduled to vote on Handfield’s appointment to this quasi-judicial body when it reconvenes in March. His term is slated to run through June 2009.

The nine-member commission, with a staff of about 20 employees in Tallahassee, serves as the guardian of standards of conduct for officers and employees of Florida and its political subdivisions, according to the commission's website. The commission also investigates and issues public reports on complaints of breaches of the public trust by public officers and employees.

Handfield is the principal in The Handfield Firm, a law firm of eight attorneys specializing in criminal defense in state and federal cases throughout the U.S.
