DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Dec. 23, 2013) -- Upchurch Watson White & Max, a Florida- and Alabama-based professional association of mediators, has been named a Fortune Magazine Top Ranked Law Firm for 2014.
Today's release of a special section in Fortune's 2014 Investor's Guide
revealed the mediation group is once again an AV Preeminent law firm, one of only 2,442 "Go-To Firms" in the country. They are all U.S. law firms of 10 or more attorneys where at least one-third of the lawyers achieved the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating, and UWWM has achieved this honor for all three years of the list's existence.
ALM partnered with Martindale-Hubbell to publish the print and online editions of the list that appear not only in Fortune Legal Marketplace, but also on CNNmoney.com and Law.com.
“This is a terrific honor, and a real tribute to the many talented mediators who have given us the honor of representing them over the past 15 years," said John Upchurch
, founder, principal and CEO of the group. "We are delighted that this comes about just as we enter the South Florida market with three new locations throughout the tri-county area.”
That brings the total number of Upchurch Watson White & Max offices
to eight: one each in Daytona Beach, Maitland, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville and Birmingham, Ala., and two in Miami.
