April 23, 2020 – The 2020 edition of Chambers USA has once again recognized Becker with a top billing Band 1 ranking in its Florida Construction category.

Likewise, Mr. Weintraub is praised as an “exceptional lawyer” who is “very knowledgeable and well connected in the Florida construction world.”
