We consider our size (100+ lawyers) to be an advantage over small Florida-only firms and multi-office megafirms. We attract lawyers with credentials that rival those at any firm of any size, and clients with highly complex work who appreciate our combination of top skills and personal attention. We work hard, but in an environment that does not add to the stresses of high-stakes lawyering. We do not coddle our new lawyers, but have them work on challenging projects, side by side with our seasoned lawyers, often across disciplines.
Quality and Creativity
We are committed to exceptional quality and creativity in our legal work. Our lawyers have received numerous accolades from top publications, including Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation, and The Best Lawyers in America.
Those who flourish here share a few characteristics – they are smart, self-motivated, considerate, and industrious. We prize collegiality and will not tolerate abusive or crass behavior. We hope to continue to attract multi-faceted people of good character and a positive outlook on life, who enjoy the internal, as well as the external, rewards of quality work.
We live in a beautiful place. Our climate enables year-round outdoor activities. We are developing, statewide, top cultural institutions. We encourage our lawyers (and staff) to take advantage of what Florida has to offer by leavening professional commitments with personal pursuits. We are deeply involved in our communities and regularly commit time and resources to charities, civic institutions, and like worthy causes.
We not only encourage a healthy lifestyle, we do something about it. The Firm underwrites membership in the gyms in our office buildings, offers free vaccinations, and sponsors seminars on nutrition and fitness. We are recognized by the American Heart Association as a 2016 Gold Level Recipient of the Fit-Friendly Companies Recognition program. Learn more here.
