Steve Yerrid has been recognized as one of the Top Ten Litigators in Florida by the National Law Journal. In 2006, he was selected as Top Lawyer in the Nation by Lawyers USA. He has been honored as the Outstanding Lawyer of the Year in the Thirteenth Circuit and recognized as Trial Lawyer of the Year by the American Board of Trial Advocates, Tampa Chapter. He has been a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer by the Florida Bar and certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy for more than twenty years. He was among eleven (11) trial lawyers selected by the Governor to represent the State of Florida in its historical lawsuit against the cigarette industry on behalf of Florida taxpayers and children. The case resulted in the largest civil monetary settlement of its kind in the nation's history and extracted unprecedented concessions that prevented child pandering, greatly curtailed cigarette advertising and marketing tactics, and created tobacco prevention programs built around youth. He was honored to be appointed as Special Counsel and represent the Office of the Chief Judge for Florida's Thirteenth Judicial Circuit, as well as Florida's Conference of Circuit Judges in litigation that concluded after his successful argument before the Supreme Court of Florida. Mr. Yerrid is a frequent lecturer in Florida and across the country and he has taught as an adjunct professor at Stetson Law School, as well as a visiting professor at Georgetown University Law Center.
