“When Justice Prevails”: Steve Yerrid on Making Social Change

Brought to you by The Yerrid Law Firm Steve Yerrid knows the cynicism some people hold toward lawyers. He’s quick to point out… “until they need one.” But Yerrid has a different perspective. As a trial lawyer, he’s in it for those who have no one else on their side and are too often outmatched in resources and without equal representation when trying to right a wrong against big corporations or powerful special interests. And it’s not even just about them. Often Yerrid asks himself “can I make a difference in this case,” and “can this case make a difference for others?” In most of the...

The InterView: Joe Collier

I STARTED IN HOSPITALITY WHEN I WAS REALLY YOUNG. I WAS 14 YEARS OLD. I went to high school for a period of time at Lauderdale High School in Fort Lauderdale, and a friend of mine called me and told me there was a famous restaurant down there called Patricia Murphy’s hiring underaged people to work there. I needed a job, so I went and worked at this place starting when I was 14. It was a real institution at the time —  kind of like a Bern’s-level restaurant. I started in the kitchen and then worked my way up from there. Then I went to hospitality school at Florida State and went straight to...

Get to Know the Toronto Raptors, Now Playing in Tampa

The news came down like the bolt of lightning the city has been missing for so many months: The Toronto Raptors, 2019 NBA Champions, would be making Tampa Bay their home base for at least the beginning of the 2020-21 basketball season. Because the Canadian government requires a 14-day quarantine upon returning from outside the country, it would have been virtually impossible for Canada’s only NBA team to participate in the season as normal. Possible city names were tossed around, from Nashville to Buffalo (where the Toronto Blue Jays played the MLB season earlier in 2020), but just before Thanksgiving,...

I CAME TO THIS ROLE WITH VINIK SPORTS GROUP THROUGH ARENA FOOTBALL. When Mr. Vinik purchased the Tampa Bay Lightning back in 2010, he also purchased the Tampa Bay Storm. I came here as the president of the Storm, running the football operations while Steve Yzerman was running the hockey operations. When I took the role, I started to expand in business leadership, not only running the arena team but also being involved with the Tampa Bay Lightning when it came to selling our team to the community — the strategies behind how the Lightning and Mr. Vinik got involved in our community. I was blessed...

The History of Tampa Heights

Beginning in the mid-2010s, the long-awaited renaissance of Tampa Heights was ?nally taking hold. For there to be a renaissance there has to have been an earlier decline, and to say that Tampa Heights was once in decline would be putting it mildly. The neighborhood just north of Downtown Tampa was the city’s ?rst suburb, but it also became one of the city’s ?rst economically challenged areas. The rise, fall and rebirth of Tampa Heights is a story that includes an epidemic with mysterious origins, a short-lived town government and grand residences, followed by long-lasting economic decline and...

Steve Yerrid: Always Seeking to Find the Good

SPONSORED CONTENT Normally when a lawyer describes “laundering money,” they’re describing a criminal act where “dirty money” obtained through wrongful conduct is transformed into funds that cannot be traced to a crime. But when Steve Yerrid explains how he uses his fees paid by wrongdoers, often large corporations, to help others make a positive difference in the world, he means something much different. “Instead of taking “dirty” money and laundering it, we take money from wrongdoers and “clean” it by giving it to good causes and those in need,” Yerrid says. “Corporations can’t feel pain and...
