TAMPA -- U.S. Attorney Donna Bucella plans to join the Miami law firm of Steel Hector & Davis.
Bucella will focus on commercial and corporate compliance litigation, especially in the fields of health care, the Internet, consumer fraud, and white-collar criminal defense, said Steve Cole, a spokesman for Bucella.
Bucella, who was appointed U.S. attorney in Tampa by President Clinton in 1999, plans to resign May 1. It was apparent after a Republican won the White House in November that a new U.S. attorney would be named.
Before moving to Miami, she plans to complete an annual tour of duty with the Army's Judge Advocate General Corps, of which she is a lieutenant colonel. The JAG Corps provides legal help to soldiers. Then she'll vacation in Italy, said Cole.
Steel Hector & Davis has more than 200 lawyers in five Florida offices and in London; Caracas, Venezuela; Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Her replacement has not been named.
