Tygart ’98 Secures 4th Circuit Court Judgeship
Lindsay Tygart

Bolles alumna and local medical malpractice attorney was the lone qualifier for the 4th Circuit Court, Group 23 election, according to a recent issue of the Jacksonville Daily Record.

That means Tygart will be the next judge to fill that seat, which is being vacated by retiring Circuit Judge Jack Schemer. She had entered a petition to qualify for a spot in the race earlier in the year, and remained the only candidate when the deadline passed May 16.

Tygart is a senior member of Coker Law’s medical malpractice division and spent her early years as a certified legal intern for the Office of Public Defender of the 4th Judicial Court. A Bolles parent and dedicated alumni volunteer, Tygart has held board positions in the Jacksonville Bar Association, the Florida Bar Association and the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association, which named Tygart 2020 Woman Lawyer of the Year.
