    LAKELAND, FL – May 24, 2017 – Estate planning attorney Sandra G. Sheets, shareholder in GrayRobinson’s Lakeland office, was awarded the Jerry DeVane Award at the Lakeland Bar Association Law Day Luncheon.

    Each year the Lakeland Bar Association honors a lawyer in Lakeland who demonstrates extraordinary scholarship, professionalism and collegiality in the practice of law. This is the most prestigious award given by the Lakeland Bar Association and Sheets is only the third woman to be honored since 1995. The award is named in memory of Jerry DeVane, a “gentleman and scholar,” and longtime lawyer of Lakeland who lost his battle with cancer in 1995.

    Sheets focuses her practice on estate and tax planning as well as estate and trust administration, with an emphasis on business succession planning involving closely held businesses. Sheets currently serves as a board member for the Polk Museum of Art, the Peace River Center, the Imperial Symphony Orchestra and the Lakeland Regional Medical Center Foundation.
