The Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section has selected four fellows for its Fellowship Program for the 2016-18 Bar years.

The 2016-18 fellows are Stephanie Villavicencio of Miami, Angela Santos of Boca Raton, Amber Ashton of Tampa, and Scott Work of Destin.

The mission of RPPTL's Fellowship Program is to attract and retain young lawyers to be active and engaged in the Bar's oldest and largest section by immediately getting them involved in the substantive work of the RPPTL. The fellows also receive leadership training and have the opportunity to work closely with leading attorneys in their field.
