At Snell Legal, we’re setting the bar for comprehensive business law and commercial litigation services. From aspiring entrepreneurs to Fortune 100 businesses, we have the skill, common sense, and experience to effectively and efficiently meet client needs. We’re small but spent years with big firms, including one of the largest in the United States, so we know what it takes as a business law and commercial litigation law firm to deliver at the very highest level.
We understand our business law and commercial litigation services are a value proposition. Most clients want to know what the services are going to cost in advance, and don’t want any unpleasant surprises from their attorney. This is why we offer many of our business law services on a flat fee basis. We are receptive to a wide variety of other alternative attorney fee arrangements as well, including contingency, reduced hourly with contingency, and success fee. We’re not afraid, when appropriate, to tie some, or all, of our attorney fee to a successful result.
Our clients have included many of the most prominent Daytona Beach area businesses, including manufacturers, hospitals, colleges and universities, hotels and motels, restaurants, retailers, professionals, automobile dealerships, contractors, developers, community associations, non-profits, service providers, web-based businesses and many others. Business and commercial litigation lawyer Greg Snell obtained the highest jury verdict in Volusia County history at the Daytona Beach Courthouse Annex on City Island, $18,787,500, for a Daytona Beach area business client, and he has handled thousands of complex commercial, and other, litigation cases in Florida and across the country. See Results for more information on results obtained by Mr. Snell as a commercial litigation attorney for business clients in the Daytona Beach area, across Florida, and throughout the United States.
Considerable recognition has come to Snell Legal for professional accomplishment and community service. For example, Mr. Snell has been AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell*, their highest attorney ratings in legal ability and ethics, for more than 20 years. He was twice a Lawdragon finalist as one of the 500 leading lawyers in America and also a Florida Super Lawyer in the area of commercial litigation. In addition, Mr. Snell was the recipient of the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce Marvin Samuels Award for making a real difference in the Daytona Beach area in 2014 and was the Volunteer of the Year for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA in 2011. For more information on Mr. Snell and his accomplishments as a business and commercial litigation lawyer and community leader see his bio.
What we’re most proud of though is that the recognition which has come our way has been because we’re doing right by our clients and our community. We exist for the clients, and are continually striving to better meet their needs. When they succeed, we succeed. We do whatever we can, within reason, to meet, and exceed, their expectations. While we’re doing it, we do our best to be accessible, responsive, good listeners, sensitive to goals and, simply, helpful, with a little fun mixed in now and then. Often our clients are more than just clients, they’re friends, and, in many respects, partners. Perhaps the biggest compliment we’ve ever received was the statement that when you really want to get something important done right you go to Snell Legal.
