John Quick (’03) voted a Florida Trend Magazine Up and Coming Lawyer

Although he’s new to the game, John Quick (’03) has already made a name for himself in Florida’s legal arena.  An associate at Weiss Serota Helfman Pastoriza Cole & Boniske, P.L. in Miami, Quick was recently named one of Florida Trend Magazine’s Up and Coming Lawyers. 

The Up and Coming Lawyers list is included in Florida Trend’s Legal Elite edition, an annual issue of the magazine in its fourth year.  The Legal Elite “names the top 868 lawyers who have earned the trust and confidence of those who know their work the best.  The prestigious roster is selected from 59,481 Florida Bar members who practice in the state,” according to Florida Trend’s Web site.  The Up and Coming lawyers are selected from lawyers who have been in practice 10 years or less.

“I feel a great sense of pride and a bit humbled by the knowledge that my peers think so highly of me—particularly given the fact that I have only been practicing law since 2003,” said Quick.

At his law firm, Quick represents local governments in a variety of areas, some of which have included competitive bidding, comprehensive planning, zoning and compliance with voting laws. He also represents private clients in their relations with governmental entities as well as in litigation and appellate matters.  He has done pro bono work with individuals in criminal, probate and family law matters.  Quick is a member of the Litigation and Appellate groups at his firm.

While at BU Law, he served as a law clerk for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office, and he was an editor of the American Journal of Law and Medicine.   He said his experience at BU Law helped him reach the success he has today.

“The abilities of the professors and the School’s curriculum are set up not only to get the best out of you while at BU Law, but also to make sure that when each graduate enters the legal profession that each does so with a head start on their peers from other law schools,” said Quick.
