Both are semi-retiring to their Islamorada home, with him cutting back significantly on his law practice and her resigning as deputy chief of the appellate division of the federal defender's office.
"Fishing is a big part of it," said Bronis, 66. "We also want to open a nonprofit animal shelter. They don't have one there."
Carlton Fields has agreed to allow Bronis to work largely from his home from now on.
Before entering private practice, Bronis served as chief of the felony division of the Miami-Dade public defender's office. In 1998, he was a finalist to become a Florida Supreme Court justice, but the seat went to R. Fred Lewis.
Bronis stresses he will still be available for clients but is cutting "way back."
"I'm still here if I'm needed," he said.
