Firms included in the 2023 Edition of “Best Law Firms” are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in the field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.

In order to create the 2023 rankings, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® reviewed over 16,000 eligible firms. To be eligible for a 2023 ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer recognized in the 13th edition of The Best Lawyers in America® list for that particular location and specialty. Best Lawyers limits its selection process to the top 5% of attorneys in each state, meaning the “Best Law Firms” list represents the most elite and successful attorneys in each given region. Gould Cooksey Fennell has received this award since 2014, and is ranked among Tier 1 law firms in the Orlando Metro area, which includes a 10 county geographic region from Indian River County to Marion County, Florida.

We are proud to be the only firm in Indian River County with the Best Law Firm’s Tier 1 recognition in multiple practice areas. The firm appreciates the support of all of our clients, partners, attorneys, paralegals and team members as we continue providing our legal services to the community, and we are honored to have served the Indian River County area and helped our clients with their legal matters for over 65 years.
