Keefe makes list of “Super Lawyers”


Special to the Daily News

Fort Walton Beach attorney Larry Keefe has been named to the 2016 list of Florida Super Lawyers, Keefe’s tenth consecutive selection for the honor.

A founding partner in the law firm of Keefe, Anchors & Gordon, Keefe specializes in business law and commercial litigation.

Published by Thompson Reuters, the annual Florida Super Lawyers magazine honors attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition, met ethical standards

and have been recognized for their professional achievements. Just five percent of Florida attorneys are recognized each year on the Super Lawyers list.

Keefe has been named to the list each year since 2008.

The son of a World War II fighter pilot who retired on the Emerald Coast in 1968, Keefe graduated from local schools before attending the University of Florida on a football

scholarship. After graduating from the University of Florida College of Law, Keefe practiced law in Tampa before returning home to the Emerald Coast in 1991. In 2009,

Keefe joined together with partners Michelle Anchors and A. Benjamin Gordon to found the firm of Keefe, Anchors & Gordon.

In addition to his Super Lawyers recognition, Keefe has been honored five times as one of Florida Trend magazine’s “Florida Legal Elite,” and has served as a gubernatorial

appointee to the Judicial Nominating Commission for the First Judicial Circuit of Florida.
