Burr’s Jacqueline Simms-Petredis was nominated by her peers as one of Tampa Bay’s top commercial finance attorneys for the 2020 Top Lawyers List in Tampa Magazines. The magazine sent surveys to nearly 7,000 attorneys practicing in Hillsborough County, asking them to nominate their peers that stand out from the rest. Practicing Tampa Bay attorneys selected 153 of their peers from 84 different practice areas as 2020’s Top Lawyers.
