Jeffrey Bercow Named 2024 Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” in the Miami Area

August 22, 2023

Bercow Radell Fernandez Larkin & Tapanes PLLC attorney Jeffrey Bercow was recently recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2024 “Lawyer of the Year” for Land Use and Zoning Law. This is the second time that Bercow receives this award after being named “Lawyer of the Year” for the first time in 2021.

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this a significant and coveted accolade. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.

Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.

In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, Jeffrey Bercow was also listed in the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas:

  • Environmental Law
  • Land Use and Zoning Law
  • Real Estate Law

For more than four decades, Best Lawyers has assisted those in need of legal services to identify the lawyers best qualified to represent them in distant jurisdictions or unfamiliar specialties. Lawyers are not required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, recognition by Best Lawyers is considered a singular distinction.

Jeffrey has practiced land use and zoning law for over 35 years, and also has practiced in the fields of real estate law and litigation, earning recognition for himself and the firm he co-founded in 1996 with Michael Radell.

As one of the most prominent attorneys in his field, Jeffrey represents real estate developers, landowners, institutional clients, lenders and other property owners. His practice covers all aspects of local, state and federal real estate permitting and licensing, including zoning approvals, amendments of local government comprehensive plans, developments of regional impacts (DRIs), due diligence reviews, growth management, concurrency and environmental matters.
