Government Law

Overview

Whether you’re appearing before a public agency requesting approvals, lobbying for changes to the law or seeking a government contract, our experienced and well regarded attorneys can help you. We’ve been active participants in Florida’s legal and political arenas for the past century. Many of our attorneys can offer an insider’s perspective because they spent years as public servants with federal, regional, state, county, and municipal governments. We understand the ins-and-outs of how government functions and are proud of our experience appearing before governing bodies, federal agencies and the state legislature.

One of the highest compliments our lawyers can receive is when a government agency turns to us for outside counsel. In the past year, our team has been retained to handle high priority matters for the following government officials and agencies:

  • Governor and Cabinet;
  • Florida House of Representatives;
  • Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration;
  • Florida Department of Environmental Protection;
