History and Practice of the Bedell Firm
Florida’s oldest law firm experienced in all forms of litigation.
As Florida’s oldest law firm in continuous existence, the Bedell firm carries a tradition of litigation excellence in both state and federal courts. Col. Horatio Bisbee founded the firm in 1865 and was joined by George C. Bedell in 1898 to form Bisbee & Bedell. George Bedell and his sons, Chester and Nathan, firmly established the firm in the courtroom and as a leader in the trial lawyer's profession.
For more than 50 years, the Bedell firm has limited its practice to state and federal trial and appellate work. Much of the firm's practice is referred from lawyers statewide and nationwide. The firm practices many forms of litigation, including:
- Complex commercial litigation
- Products liability litigation
