12 AVILA Partners Recognized in the Best Lawyers® in America 2023 List
Twelve partners at Avila Rodriguez Hernandez Mena & Garro LLP (AVILA) were recognized in the 2023 Best Lawyers® list. Since 2006, several partners have been listed in various categories, most notably for Corporate, Banking and Finance, and Real Estate Law. Joining the list of recognized specialties this year is AVILA’s International Mergers & Acquisitions practice.
Best Lawyers® states their lists have been compiled by conducting exhaustive peer review™ surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. They believe that the quality of their survey directly relates to the caliber of voters, so only lawyers who were previously recognized by Best Lawyers® were invited to review their constituents for the 2023 recognitions.
The following previously recognized AVILA lawyers made the 2023 list within new practice categories:
- Alcides I. Avila: Corporate Law, previously recognized for Banking and Finance Law
- Carlos Abarca: International Mergers and Acquisitions, previously recognized in Corporate Law, and International Trade and Finance Law
- Simon Ferro: Real Estate Law, previously recognized in Land Use and Zoning Law
- Jennifer Hernandez: Real Estate Litigation
- Maggie B. Tercilla: Real Estate Law
Founding Partner Alcides I. Avila says “it’s an honor to have our talented partners acknowledged for their exceptional work — more importantly that it comes from their peers — and in various categories no less. Two of our partners listed, Jennifer Hernandez and Maggie B. Tercilla are Best Lawyers® first timers, which is an even bigger source of pride for us.”
AVILA continues to grow, especially in their Real Estate, Zoning and Land Use practice in response to growing demand. Most recently Daniel Sanchez-Galagarra joined the practice as Senior Counsel where he focuses on commercial and residential real estate transactions.
