Mediators based at five of Upchurch Watson White & Max's Florida offices have been selected for inclusion in the 2021 Super Lawyers® list for the state. All of them have been included on this list for at least five years, and all were selected for their primary practice area of ADR. They are: Firm Principal Rodney A. Max, Steven R. Jaffe and John B. Marion IV, all based in South Florida; Renée E. Thompson, Central and North Central Florida; and Firm Principal Robert A. Cole, Central and North Florida.
Mr. Max, at 12 years on the list, has been selected the most of anyone on UWWM's panel. He also has been on the Alabama list nine times and is nominated again this year. Alabama honorees won't be announced until November.
Ms. Thompson, who began by being chosen for the Super Lawyers® Rising Star list in 2009, has been selected for Super Lawyers® annually since 2015. This year, she had the fun of being interviewed for the organization's Florida magazine. In her Q&A, you can find out the quality she most admires in a lawyer, a different practice area that intrigues her and what she wishes she had invented.
If you're wondering how the selections are made, JurisDigital gives a plain-English explanation:
Super Lawyers' list is limited to 5 percent of the practicing attorneys in each state.
