U.S. News & World Report, in conjunction with Best Lawyers, selected Ciklin Lubitz & O’Connell as a recipient of the 2015 “Best Law Firms” designation.

Ciklin Lubitz & O’Connell was originally formed by the merger of three boutique law firms: Boose Ciklin Martens Lubitz, focused on land use, litigation and real estate law; Casey & McBane, with a concentration in corporate tax law and construction litigation; and O’Connell and O’Connell, which offered real estate, estate planning, probate and guardianship services.

Two of Ciklin Lubitz & O’Connell’s partners, cousins Brian M. O’Connell and Phil D. O’Connell, Jr., come from a storied and influential Palm Beach County family. A generation before them, three O’Connell brothers—Philip, Sr., Stephen, and Andrew—all lawyers, had a tremendous impact on Palm Beach County and the state of Florida. In 1939 Phillip D. O’Connell, Sr. was elected State Attorney for the 15th Judicial Circuit, which at the time encompassed both Broward and Palm Beach Counties. He served as State Attorney for 28 years while also maintaining a private law practice.

A newly enhanced website, at http://ciklinlubitz.com/, is one of many ways that the firm is demonstrating its commitment to continued growth and service in South Florida and across the state.
