FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 15, 2019 – Coker Law is honored to announce the inclusion of attorneys Howard Coker, Rufus Pennington III, Daniel Iracki and Charles Sorenson in the 2020 listing of The Best Lawyers in America. Best Lawyers in America is one of the oldest, most well-respected attorney ranking services in the United States, and to be included in the publication is a great reflection of the dedication these four have to practicing law.
This year marks the 20th year Howard Coker, founding partner and president of Coker Law, has been recognized in The Best Lawyers in America for his work in the category of Personal Injury Litigation. For his tireless service and consistent commitment to both professional and community organizations, Coker has received a number of significant awards and honors throughout the years. Recognized by his peers as a prominent Florida trial attorney, Coker is a passionate and active advocate. In the pursuit of justice, he has tried over 350 jury trials to conclusion and handled thousands of mediated settlements.
Having served as trial counsel in litigation throughout our country’s state and federal courts for more than 30 years, Of Counsel Rufus Pennington III has been recognized ten times by The Best Lawyers in America for his work in the categories of Medical Malpractice Law and Personal Injury Litigation. Highly honored, Pennington keeps pro bono work an integral part of his practice, devoting hours each week to those who need legal help but cannot afford to hire a lawyer.
Partner Daniel Iracki may be the youngest named partner in Coker Law’s 40-year history and one of the youngest Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyers in the state, but his dedication and work ethic shine through in his combined total judgments and verdicts of over $70 million. He plays a critical role within the firm, guiding strategy and decision making, and mentoring associate attorneys. Iracki has been recognized for his work in the category of Personal Injury Litigation by The Best Lawyers in America for the past five years.
Throughout his career, Partner Charles Sorenson has been dedicated to representing seriously injured plaintiffs and their families in complex personal injury and wrongful death cases. His unyielding focus has resulted in the successful conclusion of thousands of cases. Sorenson’s work on behalf of his clients, as well as the advancement of legal professionalism, has garnered him multiple honors.
