David Barksdale, Brian T. Coughlin, Henry M. Coxe III, John A. DeVault III, R. H. Farnell II, and Michael E. Lockamy were recently recognized in the 2019 edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The winner list represents just over 1 percent of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida. Barksdale, Coxe, and DeVault were also included in the Legal Elite Hall of Fame.
The prestigious list includes attorneys in private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys. To compile the list, Florida Trend invited all actively practicing Florida lawyers to name the attorneys that they hold in the highest regard – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others.
Florida Bar President John M. Stewart remarked, “The Florida Bar and its more than 106,000 members are meeting the challenge of adapting the practice of law with evolving technologies to better serve our clients and the public. Lawyers from across our vast state, representing practices small and large, are embracing these efforts, which are making legal services more affordable to many and helping to close the justice gap. For the public and our profession, Florida Trend’s Legal Elite remains a reliable guide to Florida’s top legal talent, as recommended by their peers.”
Congratulations to all of our attorneys who were honored with this prestigious award.
