With a long-standing tradition of community service and offices strategically located in Miami and West Palm Beach, we are rooted firmly in South Florida and proud to be an integral part of the community we call “home.”
The firm’s tradition of public service was originated by its two founders, the late William S. Frates, and Peter T. Fay, who presently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. This tradition was expanded in the mid-1960s by the addition of two former circuit judges, Robert L. Floyd and Ray H. Pearson.
For our excellence and contributions in the legal field and in the general community, we have received numerous awards and accolades since our founding in 1961. However, we consider our firm’s client roster and growth through referrals the best measure of our success. Looking ahead, we will continue to expand and grow in order to meet an increased demand for the high quality, customized legal services we are known to provide as a leading law firm in South Florida.We serve a diverse clientele of national and international corporations, entrepreneurs, local and state governmental entities, non-profit organizations and individuals.
