ORLANDO – Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law alumnus Jeramy Beasley was recently appointed by Governor Ron DeSantis to serve as a judge on the Orange County Court in the Ninth Judicial Circuit. Beasley is filling the position previously held by Andrew Bain, who is also a FAMU Law alumnus.

“We are always delighted to hear about the well-deserved professional accomplishments of our law school alumni,” said FAMU College of Law Associate Provost and Interim Dean Cecil Howard.

The West Palm Beach native is an associate with Garganese, Weiss, D’Agresta & Salzman, P.A. and represents both public and private entities in a variety of matters including civil rights disputes, construction defect claims, first-party property claims, and personal injury claims.

“In receiving notification that I was being appointed to the bench by the Governor, I was overcome with a mixture of emotions,” said Beasley.  “Not only was I excited for the new journey, I was also grateful for the confidence placed in my ability to fulfill the duties of a jurist and appreciative of the opportunity to continue my public service.”

Beasley earned his Bachelor of Science in criminal justice from the University of Central Florida. Beasley attended the evening program at FAMU College of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctorate. While in law school, Beasley also worked full-time as a judicial assistant for Ninth Judicial Circuit Judge Greg Tynan.

“For me, it is indisputable FAMU College of Law played an integral role in preparing me for my legal career goals.  From the first day of classes and throughout my law school career, it was consistently reinforced to think critically, remain prepared, operate with professionalism, and always strive to keep your reputation intact.  It is through these lessons and experiences I was able to transcend to the point in which I am today,” Beasley said.

The reestablished FAMU College of Law has produced more than 2800 graduates who are lawyers and leaders, produced more than 1100 licensed minority attorneys in Florida, produced 12 sitting judges in Florida, Georgia and Missouri, and produced one sitting state attorney.
