UWWM Scores Top Honors in Best Lawyers Listings
We were recently pleased but not surprised to learn that two of our panel members, Rodney A. Max, firm principal, and mediator and arbitrator Timothy J. McDermott, who joined Upchurch Watson White & Max more recently, were named Lawyers of the Year for 2021 in two different cities. The Best Lawyers in America bestowed the Birmingham honor in mediation on Rodney, and Tim won for a prior practice area, litigation – land use and zoning, for Jacksonville.
Both are repeat honorees. Rod was also named Lawyer of the Year in mediation for Birmingham in 2010 and 2013 and for Miami in 2015, 2017 and 2019. Tim received the honor in the "litigation – land use and zoning" category for Jacksonville in 2019, and he was named Lawyer of the Year in "litigation – banking and finance" for that metro area in 2015 and 2018.
In more news from Best Lawyers, Upchurch Watson White & Max won the Top-Listed State Award for mediation in Florida and Alabama and the Top-Listed City Award for mediation in Birmingham. Having five mediators on the Best Lawyers list in Florida and an equal number in Alabama secured those awards.
