Florida, Fla. (September 16, 2013) – Plaintiff attorney David C.

“I am humbled by the admiration I have received from attorneys on both sides of the courtroom,” Prather explained, “At the end of the day, this award is about recognition from my peers; I am honored to accept this award.”
Prather was also named among the Best Lawyers in America for 2014 in both the Personal Injury Litigation Plaintiffs and Defendants categories.
Selection for Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprising over four million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. The annual Best Lawyers publication has been described by The American Lawyer as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” Since no fee or purchase is required, being listed in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
David C. Prather is a Board certified civil trial attorney with nearly 20 years of experience, who specializes in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice and products liability litigation. He currently serves on the Florida Bar’s Board of Governors, and is also past president of the Palm Beach County Trial Lawyers Association.
