Law school is difficult, and my cousins can attest to that. However, there is a light at the end of the dark, three-year tunnel, and it’s when you can take what you have learned, apply it at a firm, and be recognized for those years of hard work.

Comiter, Singer, Baseman & Braun, LLP, a tax law firm in Palm Beach Gardens, recently announced five attorneys were selected to the 2015 Florida Super Lawyers List, including Richard B. Comiter, Michael S. Singer, Keith B. Braun, Alan H. Baseman and Lisa Z. Hauser. Comiter’s son, Andrew, was listed as a Rising Star in the field of taxation. In addition, Comiter, Singer and Braun were included in Florida Super Lawyers’ list of the Top 100 Florida Super Lawyers.

“By having six of seven attorneys [selected], it tells you the strength and quality of our regional tax law firm,” Comiter said.

Comiter, who along with Singer started the firm 15 years ago, has been selected as a Florida Super Lawyer 10 times, as well as Baseman.

“It’s always good to have recognition from fellow lawyers of your accomplishments in the legal community,” Comiter said. “I always appreciate any type of recognition or award.”

Comiter is no stranger to recognition – South Florida’s Best Lawyers recognized him as the 2012 Tax Lawyer of the Year for West Palm Beach and Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Businessnamed Comiter as a leading tax-planning and estate-planning attorney in Florida.

The firm, whose attorneys were hand-selected by Comiter, serves as counsel to high-net-worth individuals and assists them on succession and wealth transfer planning. The firm focuses on federal income, estate and gift tax planning, structuring business transactions for pass-through entities, preparing partnership and limited liability company agreements to govern the relationship of the parties, and working with business owners on how to most effectively pass their ownership interests from one generation to the next. In addition, the firm does a significant amount of probate trust and guardianship litigation and asset protection.

Law school may be filled with hundreds of pages to read and papers to write, but the payoff at the end of the day is sublime. Need more proof? Just read this article again.
