Every year, Super Lawyers selects attorneys from all firm sizes and over 70 practice areas throughout the United States. Those selected have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The Super Lawyers list recognizes no more than 5 percent of attorneys in each state.
All four attorneys—Lipcon, Margulies, Winkleman and Garcell—received recognition for their specialization in Transportation and Maritime Law. In addition, Lipcon and Margulies both received recognition for their knowledge and experience in General Personal Injury.
Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. (LM&W) is extremely proud of having 4 of our attorneys named to the 2020 Super Lawyers list. While Lipcon, Margulies and Winkleman have been named Super Lawyers in the past; we are extremely excited that our newest partner Jacqueline Garcell, has been named to SuperLawyers Rising Stars. Garcell was the fastest attorney to make partner in the history of LM&W and has received several awards in the past, including Top Personal Injury Verdicts in Florida in 2017.
This isn’t the first time LM&W attorneys have received this honor. Our founder, Charles R. Lipcon, was initially recognized by SuperLawyers in 2007, and has been honored with this award consecutively for the past 13 years. Since then, one or more LM&W attorneys have been distinguished as a Super Lawyer. Below is a breakdown of our attorneys and the years they were recognized as either a Super Lawyer or a Rising Star:
- Charles R. Lipcon: 2007-2020 Super Lawyer
