The Litigation Counsel of America (LCA) has honored West Palm Beach partner Patricia Lebow with the Peter Perlman Service Award, which recognizes LCA Fellows who contribute in meaningful ways to society by giving back their time and resources in an effort to improve the lives of others.
Lebow was the founding partner of the West Palm Beach office of Broad and Cassel, which combined with Nelson Mullins in 2018. She served as its managing partner until the merger. Lebow’s practice was exclusively litigation until approximately 15 years ago when she ventured into the area of trust and estates.
Aside from practicing law full time and supervising a team of litigators throughout her career, Lebow has a long history of community service. One of her most notable community achievements is the founding in 2007 of Kids’ Dreams, a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to provide economically underserved students in Palm Beach County with academic and cultural opportunities. As a result of Lebow’s tireless efforts as President of Kids’ Dreams, hundreds of Title 1 schoolchildren have received scholarships to attend college, and notably some are continuing their education in law school, medical school, and other post graduate degree programs. Kids’ Dreams also created the Alan Lebow Award for Excellence in Shakespearean Performance in memory of Lebow’s husband.
The Litigation Counsel of America is a trial lawyer honorary society composed of less than half of 1% of American lawyers. Fellowship in the LCA is highly selective and by invitation only. Fellows are selected based upon excellence and accomplishment in litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels, and superior ethical reputation, according to the organization.
Established in 1897, Nelson Mullins has more than 800 attorneys and government relations professionals with offices in 11 states and Washington, D.C. For more information on the firm, go to www.nelsonmullins.com.
