Broward Circuit Court Candidate Playing Name Game

client_logoCoral Springs attorney Doreen Turner Inkeles wants to be a Broward County Circuit Court Judge, but she wants to run under a different name. Even though she’s practiced law for years under the name Inkeles, she filed for the Circuit 17 Group 24 seat under the name “Doreen Carol Turner.” Inkeles divorced Dr. Paul Martin Inkeles in 2000.

Since the divorce, she has continued to use the name Inkeles. The Florida Bar lists her license under the name “Doreen Turner Inkeles.” The Bar lists her place of employment as “Beiner Inkeles & Horvitz PA” in Boca Raton. Internet domain records show her website, InkelesLaw.com, was created in 2007, seven years after her divorce.

Broward County records show Doreen Turner Inkeles purchased a Coconut Creek home in February 2010. The Broward Clerk of Courts shows Doreen Turner Inkeles as representing clients in 2015. The State of Florida says Doreen C. Inkeles is registered to vote in Broward County at her Coconut Creek address.

Even her Facebook page is listed under “Doreen Turner Inkeles.”

So why the name game for Broward voters?
