Minkoff200 Gov. Charlie Crist has appointed Thomas H. Minkoff of Gulfport (pictured) to the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court, which covers Pinellas and Pasco counties.

"Tommy’s two decades of experience practicing law make him prepared to take the bench," Crist said. "I am confident his expertise, breadth of knowledge and intellect will help him serve the Sixth Circuit with fairness and integrity."

Minkoff, 59, is the interim city attorney of Gulfport and was legal counsel for the Republican Party of Pinellas County from 2005 to 2007. He practiced privately with Deeb & Durkin P.A. since 2007 and was the general counsel for Complex Properties Corp. since 1990.

Minkoff will fill the vacancy created by the appointment of Judge Robert J. Morris to the Second District Court of Appeal.
