Maria Gerber believes that attorneys can not only positively influence our communities in real time, but also make an impact on our future. One of the key ways Maria Gerber believes that she can best do that is by supporting our youth. When she was an assistant state attorney in the 6th Judicial Circuit, in Pinellas County she regularly volunteered her time at Teen Court, which is a “peer court” for high schoolers facing first time misdemeanor or traffic offender charges. Currently, she coordinates, coaches and instructs high school and university students who compete in forensics. This includes speech, debate, moot court and mock trial. Maria believes that shepherding the youth of today means a better tomorrow for all of us. It is her passion to foster youth programs that enable students to learn the art of advocacy, including logic and rhetoric so that they will be effective communicators. It is her hope that the youth with whom she works will become future leaders who properly balance compassion for humanity with their skills and ambition. Maria holds her students to a high standard of hard work, honesty, and ethics which has proved a recipe for success as the teams she has coached have won or placed in many esteemed national competitions. Maria also supports youth excellence through sports programs. In 2020 and in 2021 she was a sponsor for the Venice High School Girls Golf Team.
