Attorneys Suzanne D. Meehle and Davey T. Jay of the law firm Meehle & Jay P.A. were recognized in the 2018 edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,012 honorees 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 highest regard – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others. The winner list represents just over 1% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
Ms. Jay states, “We are thrilled that both Suzanne and I were named Legal Elite™! Fewer than 1.2% of Florida attorneys are awarded this honor.” Ms. Jay further noted that Suzanne Meehle is one of only 31 attorneys recognized for excellence in business law, while Ms. Jay is one of only 19 recognized for excellence in intellectual property law.
Florida Bar President Michelle R. Suskauer notes, “Florida Bar members are at the forefront of our profession and we are the third largest Bar in the country. Lawyers have opportunities every day to positively change people’s lives and to increase access to justice. We also live in a time of innovation, giving us exciting new ways to use technology with our knowledge and skills to better serve clients. Year after year, Florida Trend’s Legal Elite provides a credible resource of attorneys evaluated by their peers and representing many types and sizes of practices.”
“Florida Trend’s 250,000 readers are executives who rely on the legal community for many crucial corporate assignments,” says Publisher Andrew Corty. “When we first published Florida Legal Elite in 2004, our goal was to provide a resource for our readers. Over the past 15 years, I’ve heard many accolades about the program. Florida Legal Elite is a guide to selecting a trusted legal partner to handle delicate business concerns.
