The Aventura Marketing Council’s most recent Chairman’s Roundtable luncheon was a “slam dunk success” thanks to NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson – the inspiring keynote speaker hosted by the law firm of Eisinger, Brown, Lewis, Frankel, Chaiet & Krut, P.A. located in Hollywood’s Presidential Circle building.
AMC Chair Cliff Schulman of Weiss, Serota, Helfman helped welcome business and community leaders to Christine Lee’s at Gulfstream Park for the event along with “allstar” attorneys Dennis Eisinger and Andy Lewis. They explained that their firm is focused on areas including condominium and community association law, commercial and residential real estate, construction, lender financing, civil, commercial, corporate and general litigation and insurance defense.
“We pride ourselves on developing longlasting relationships with our clients and providing sound and practical legal and business advice in a very service-oriented manner,” Lewis said. A primary focal point of our practice is representation of hundreds of condominium and homeowners’ associations from the Florida Keys to Gainesville.” Testifying to the firm’s unique understanding of this area of the law, Dennis Eisinger teaches a Condominium and Community Development Law class as an adjunct professor at the University of Florida School of Law, sharing over 25 years of experience with students.
Prior to the luncheon, Eisinger presented a seminar attended by over 50 condo and homeowner association Board members, strongly supported by Len Brenner and the Joint Council of Aventura. Attendees learned about new legislative changes affecting condominium and homeowners’ associations and innovative strategies for collecting delinquent assessments.
Taking the podium, Anderson spoke about his illustrious NBA career, highlighted by being a two-time college All-American and Hall of Famer at Georgia Tech; a #2 NBA draft pick; an NBA All- Star with the New Jersey Nets; and being inducted into the New York City Basketball Hall of Fame.
Today, Anderson is proud of achieving his goal to graduate from St. Thomas University last May – and now, when not spending time with his children, he gives back to the community. Anderson recently teamed up with Floyd Sports Marketing and All-Star Basketball to hold a youth basketball camp at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC, created to teach basketball while emphasizing the importance of maintaining a positive attitude and displaying good sportsmanship. Anderson, who served as lead teaching pro, was joined by Tim Hardaway, Dennis Rodman and Mario Chalmers.
“When I played in the NBA, I worked on my game and was just happy that I was in the league and could take care of my mother so she didn’t have to struggle anymore,” Anderson said. “In high school, my main mission was getting a college scholarship. My mentor said to do well in basketball, you have to do well in school. I try to tell all the young people that I work with now that if you want something bad enough, you have to commit yourself, be dedicated and not let anyone bring you down.”
“The game of basketball opened so many doors for me and made my family’s life so much easier. It’s only right that I give back by showing young kids the right way to go and getting them to be top players – mentally and physically. Then when they make it, they’ll say, ‘Kenny Anderson helped me’ – and I’ll be happy with that.”
