Bedell, Dittmar, Devault, Pillans & Coxe, P.A.

The Simple Answer to Complex Litigation

Litigation Excellence Since 1865

As the oldest law firm in continuous existence in the State of Florida, the Bedell firm carries on its tradition of litigation excellence, both in state and federal courts. Founded in 1865, the Bedell firm has distinguished itself both in the courtroom and as a leader in the trial lawyer's profession. For more than fifty years, the Bedell firm has limited its practice to state and federal trial and appellate work, now including alternative dispute resolution by mediation and arbitration.
The firm maintains a size which allows it to staff the most complicated civil and criminal cases while avoiding the bureaucracy, inefficiency and institutional inertia that can plague the large firm. The attorneys of the firm continue to be listed in every annual list of notable lawyers in local, state and national rankings, including The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA, Florida Trend’s Legal Elite, and Florida’s Super Lawyers.
