On July 29, 2016, the Dade County Bar Association held its annual Legal Luminaries awards program and dinner at the Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne.
Gunster shareholder Maria Acevedo-Belt was named a Legal Luminary in the category of Top Corporate Attorney by popular vote by members of the bar.
There are a variety of categories covering many different legal practice areas.
Dade County Bar Association selects finalists in each category based on nominations received. Members in good standing with the Florida Bar are invited to vote, and winners are determined by the total number of valid votes for each category.
A Wall Street trained lawyer, she represents a wide variety of domestic and international companies regarding their U.S. and multinational business law matters. Maria is bilingual in English and Spanish, and frequently handles cross-border matters that are conducted and documented exclusively in Spanish.
The Dade County Bar Association promotes the administration of justice, enhances attorney professionalism, and cultivates positive relationships among all members of the bar.
