Jacksonville’s Community Events Keeping Yau Law Busy!

  This week, Jacksonville’s events calendar has kept Jo-Anne Yau, of Yau Law, very busy!  The week started with an event at Car Tech, owned by Donna Reade.  She taught women how to take care of their vehicles, recognize any signs of car trouble, and know how to recognize a shady mechanic’s extortion tactics.  This monthly event would be very beneficial for anyone involved in a car accident.  Donna will get your car rolling, or recommend an honest car care specialist who will.

After the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce’s South Council lunch at Carrabba’s on Tuesday, Jo-Anne attended the Jacksonville Women Lawyers’ Association’s opening reception at Blue Fish restaurant.  Evidently, the Avondale restaurant’s baked salmon wasn’t the only delicious dish on the menu, since it was quite busy, particularly for a Tuesday night.  With the success of the restaurant and its smooth operation, I wondered whether it was a franchised operation.

After a quick appearance at the Spohrer Dodd social, the “EAST/WEST:  Contemporary Art from China” sneak peek event at Jacksonville’s MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art” filled Thursday night’s calendar.  The reception marked the unveiling of the exhibit, where creative expressions were displayed.  There were also many performers, including lion dancers and traditional Chinese dancers.

Yau Law was invited to the Mayor’s Hispanic American Advisory Board and the First Coast Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s annual “Achieving the Dream Scholarship Event” at the Hyatt downtown.  Betty Martinez Lowery, the Senior manager of Minority Business Development for Disney shared her experience when, as a small child, she and her family fled Cuba, and how a teacher gave her the confidence to excel in school.

Finally, Jo-Anne finished off the week by judging the Florida Coastal School of Law’s Mock Trial team’s final round of the Internal Competition.  The competition was fierce, and the advocates certainly will be tomorrow’s best and brightest litigators!
