Chambers USA: Brannock Humphries & Berman One of Florida’s Best Appellate Law Firms

The widely respected Chambers USA guide has ranked more Brannock Humphries & Berman lawyers as top appellate attorneys than any other law firm of any size in Florida. Brannock Humphries & Berman is also one of only seven law firms, including large international firms, that the 2022 Chambers guide gave “Band 1” status to for exceptional appellate practice. Chambers described the firm as a “[h]ighly-respected boutique with vast experience representing clients in both major state and federal appellate courts.”

Chambers is well-known for its rigorous and independent methodology and is often referred to as the “gold standard” in legal rankings. Rankings are not completed and released until Chambers’ full-time research staff interviews lawyers and clients. During this year’s review process, interviewees highlighted the firm’s depth. One source said, “They are excellent—I can’t say enough good things about them. The bench is strong.” Another source said, in a similar vein, “The firm is strong from partner to associate level. They can handle the most complex cases. It is truly an appellate firm and they’re fantastic at it.”

Apart from the firm’s top-tier ranking, Brannock Humphries & Berman’s three managing shareholders were each individually described as notable appellate practitioners. Steve Brannock and Celene Humphries were both listed in “Band 1,” two of just twelve lawyers to achieve Chambers’ highest ranking. Chambers noted Steve’s skill “at taking a complex set of appellate issues and distilling them down to their essence,” and noted Celene’s reputation as  “an excellent all-round lawyer” who “is perfect for providing advice at trial to preserve appellate issues.” And Chambers described Ceci Berman as “bright, diligent and simultaneously creative. On top of her extensive experience she can communicate effectively with clients but also lawyers who bring appeals to her.”
