Pavese Law Firm attorneys Diane L. Jensen and Christopher J. Shields have been recognized in the 2016 edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™.  The list of honorees, published in the July issue of Florida Trend magazine, includes attorneys in private practice as well as top government and nonprofit attorneys.

Jensen and Shields have been recognized in the Legal Elite category.

Actively practicing Florida attorneys were asked to name the attorneys that they hold in highest regard as professionals – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others. Florida Bar President William J. Schifino, Jr. notes, “My goal is to engage and utilize the incredible resources of legal leaders throughout the state. For the public and our profession, Florida Legal Elite offers a guide to outstanding attorneys recommended by their peers.”
