Adair, a shareholder with the Firm, has been appointed to the Code & Rules of Evidence Committee of the Florida Bar.
The Code & Rules of Evidence Committee is responsible for ensuring that the Supreme Court’s Rules of Evidence are in accordance with the law of evidence established by the legislature and codified in the Florida Statutes.

In its inaugural “Legal Elite” poll, Florida Trend magazine named Mr. Adair among its “Legal Elite” in the area of Civil Trial Law. In 2004, he was again included in the Legal Elite in the area of Land Use, Zoning and Telecommunications law.
