Five attorneys with the Sarasota law firm of Syprett Meshad are honored as Elite Top Attorneys of Florida’s Gulf Coast, and are featured in the September issue of SRQ Magazine.
Those named to the Legal Elite list are nominated by actively practicing attorneys from across the state of Florida who are invited to name those attorneys for whom they have the highest regard or whom they would recommend to others. Only 1,071 lawyers statewide were named to the 2020 list, which represents just over 1% of the more than 100,000 Florida Bar members.
Syprett Meshad Managing Partner, Attorney F. Scott Westheimer, has been named to Florida Trend magazine’s prestigious “Legal Elite” list for the third consecutive year. Only 1,165 lawyers in Florida were named to the 2014 list, which represents just 2 percent of the more than 67,000 Florida Bar members active in Florida.
In March of this year, Attorney Westheimer was elected to the Florida Bar Board of Governors, Twelfth Circuit Representative, Seat One, representing over 1800 attorneys of the Twelfth Circuit, which includes Sarasota, DeSoto, and Manatee counties. He won the office in a contested race against Timothy A. Knowles of Bradenton. Attorney Westheimer was sworn into office on June 28, 2013, during the Florida Bar’s annual meeting in Boca Raton; for a two-year term.
