January 13, 2012

Former Florida Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher, and holder of several offices in the state, has joined the Fort Lauderdale law firm of Colodny, Fass, Talenfeld, Karlinsky & Abate, P.A., as a consultant.

In 2003, Gallagher was elected the state’s first CFO, before making an unsuccessful run for U.S. Senator. He was also elected Florida treasurer and insurance commissioner between 1989 and 1995. He again served in the office between 2001 and 2003, filling out the remaining tenure of Bill Nelson, who was elected to the U.S. Senate. Gallagher also served one term as Florida commissioner of education before it was made an administrative post following a state constitutional Cabinet reorganization.

In addition to its Fort Lauderdale office, the law firm also has an office in Tallahassee.
