Florida Super Lawyers Top List
Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in Florida via a patented multiphase selection process involving peer nomination, independent research, and peer evaluation. The Florida lawyers who receive the highest point totals during this selection process are further recognized in Florida Super Lawyers Top Lists.
Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public.
Shannon Miller has received a Super Lawyer designation every year since 2014. Her Elder Law practice specializes in guardianships, wills and trusts, exploitation, probate and trust litigation, and probate administration.
On receiving the Super Lawyer designation, Ms. Miller comments “I am honored to receive this designation because it means I can reach more seniors and vulnerable adults to hopefully, make a difference in their lives.”
During her career, Shannon has been a frequent speaker for local, state, and national organizations including Alzheimer’s Association, National Business Institute, National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, National Adult Protective Services Association, End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium, National Association of Elder Law Attorneys, and Florida Attorney General Crime Prevention Training Institute and The Florida Bar’s Elder Law Section Committee on Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation. She is also a frequent expert speaker on issues affecting seniors at the Florida legislature.
Ms. Miller has made significant contributions to legislation protecting the elderly from exploitation with testimony before the State of Florida House of Representatives, including drafting the recent Exploitation Asset Freeze legislation signed into law on March 27, 2018. This sweeping legislation will allow victims of exploitation to freeze assets before their exploiter disappears or the funds do. It is the first legislation to specifically protect vulnerable adults’ assets in the nation!
Shannon is a founding member and stakeholder representing elder law attorneys for the North Central Florida Senior Advocacy Network whose mission is to end the exploitation of the elderly. In addition, she has held numerous leadership positions in the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys including President and currently serves as the Legislative Co-Chair of the Elder Law Section of the Florida Bar.
