Fowler White Burnett, P.A. Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: For anyone looking to get into a stable firm with prospects of growth, promotion and being mentored by those who have been doing this for decades, this is a great place to work, if you can handle the stress and the requirements of such a competitive field.

Pros: A hugely varied range of areas to practice, offices all over Florida if the climate and scenery interests you. Very experienced lawyers that can help you gain experience and navigate your specific area of practice. A stable and well-run firm.

Cons: Intense competition, huge companies as clients that demand results so there's a lot of pressure to both please them and get things right. The areas of law this firm is involved with are very complex and technical, so be prepared to be up to your neck in books at all times. If Florida isn't for you, then this firm will not have much to offer.

Overview


Over seventy years ago, two veteran attorneys, Cody Fowler and Morris White, united to form a partnership in Tampa, Florida. Cody Fowler, a charismatic leader, and Morris White, a reserved academic, brought their distinctive personalities together to manage the firm and guide its successful expansion southward. In 1950, Henry Burnett was the third attorney to join the firm’s Miami office. He was followed shortly thereafter by Richard Banick. The firm evolved to become Fowler, White, Burnett, Hurley, Banick & Strickroot in the early 1970s – simply known as Fowler White Burnett. Our founding partners are largely credited with the firm’s significant growth, success in various practices and prominent position in South Florida’s legal landscape. Our growth continues today and the firm has established itself as a force both in our community and on a national level. This is a result of repeatedly reaching and exceeding the expectations of our clients and providing sound, creative counsel.
