Community INVOLVEMENT

The Bedell Firm has provided three presidents to the state bar (George Bedell, John DeVault, and Hank Coxe) and four presidents to the local bar (including Hank Coxe). We believe that our involvement in professional activities and pro bono work begins, but does not complete, our obligations to the community. To that end, members of the firm are active in a number of community organizations from Rotary to the local Little League. Bedell attorneys have contributed their time and efforts to the following bar and community organizations:

  • Advisory Committee on Rules, U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida
