Pavese Law Firm is proud to announce attorneys Neale Montgomery and Christopher Shields have been named to the esteemed 2020 Super Lawyers list of top attorneys in Florida. This honor is bestowed upon no more than five percent of lawyers statewide.
Selections for the revered Super Lawyers list result from the extensive research efforts executed by the Thomson Reuters’ rating service of lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. All of the attorneys chosen have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The multi-phased selection process is rigorous and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. The equally prestigious Rising Stars list recognizes the state’s top up-and-coming attorneys.
