Tallahassee — Last week, Gov. Rick Scott announced the appointment of Monica Brasington to the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court.

   “Through her dedication for serving our elderly and special needs citizens, Monica has demonstrated that she will be a thoughtful judge and will bring great experience to the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court bench. I am confident she will always put the interests of Florida families first as she assumes her new role,” Scott said.

   Brasington, 40, of Gainesville, has been a partner with Miller and Brasington, P.A. since 2006, practicing elder and special needs law.    Brasington previously practiced at King and Spalding in Atlanta and was staff counsel to the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court. Brasington is the vice president of the Estate Planning Council of North Florida and program chair of the James C. Adkins, Jr. American Inn of Court. Brasington received her bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Florida where she graduated with high honors. Brasington fills a vacancy created by the resignation of Judge David A. Glant.
