Jonathan A. Berkowitz Recognized as Florida Legal Elite


ST. PETERSBURG, FL. (June 23, 2015) – Jonathan A. Berkowitz, a Partner at Cohen, Norris, Wolmer, Ray, Telepman & Cohen in North Palm Beach was recently recognized in the 2015 edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,131 honorees, published in the July issue of Florida Trend magazine, includes attorneys in private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys.


Actively practicing Florida attorneys were asked to name the attorneys that they hold in highest regard as professionals – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others. "Florida Trend has grown into one of the state's most trusted media resources and its Legal Elite special report has become the standard for identifying peer-rated attorneys who are among the top legal talent in Florida,” notes Florida Bar President Ramón A. Abadin.


"Florida Trend’s 250,000 readers are executives who rely on the legal community for a multitude of corporate assignments,” says Publisher Andrew Corty. “When we first published Florida Legal Elite in 2004, our goal was to provide a valuable resource for our readers. Over the past 12 years, I’ve heard many accolades about the program. Florida Legal Elite is a guide to selecting a trusted legal partner to handle delicate business concerns. Our website, FloridaTrend.com, offers another pathway for the dissemination of this key information.”


The entire Legal Elite report can be viewed at www.FloridaTrend.com/Legal-Elite.

Florida High School Mock Trial

Mr. Berkowitz participated as a scoring judge for the Circuit 15 High School Mock Trial competition sponsored by The Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc. on February 3, 2014. This popular academic competition provides students with a firsthand opportunity to explore the administration of justice using a fictional criminal case.

The Florida High School Mock Trial program is open to all students in Florida, grades 9-12, enrolled in high school. Teams participate in school, county and circuit competitions to advance to the state finals. Students are evaluated as attorneys and witnesses throughout the program. Ethical conduct, team performance, poise, articulation, and a wide range of areas are rated on a scale of 1-10 by attorneys and county and circuit court judges.

The program fosters increased knowledge of the legal system, the rule of law, and the administration of justice; engenders trust and confidence in the courts; and promotes awareness of the constitutional basis for trial by jury, right to legal counsel, and other rights of the accused; as well as the refinement of critical and analytical thinking skills, oral presentation skills, cause and effect relationships, and higher order thinking.

The Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc. celebrates thirty years of service to the State of Florida in 2014. For more information on civic and law programs provided by The Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc., please visit their web site at www.flrea.org.
