ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Estate attorney Mary Merrell Bailey has been selected to the 2017 Florida Super Lawyers list. Super Lawyers is an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice, and only five percent of attorneys in Florida receive this distinction each year.
Selection to the Super Lawyers list is peer-reviewed, as it requires other attorneys to nominate and assess each recipient's legal ability, ethics, and professional achievements. The objective of Super Lawyers is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys to be used as a resource for both referring attorneys and consumers seeking legal counsel.
During a recent interview, Bailey explained, "I enjoy helping my clients with estate and legacy planning that reflects who they are long after they are gone. But many clients find it difficult to face their own mortality, so it's my job to build rapport and help move them beyond their discomfort in order to accomplish their planning goals."
In addition to estate and tax planning, Bailey focuses her passion on financial literacy initiatives. She strongly believes that financially informed individuals are better able to take control of their circumstances, improve their quality of life, and ensure a more stable future for themselves and their families. As the current Chair of the Board of Trustees of the National Endowment for Financial Education, Bailey is well-positioned to raise awareness regarding the importance of increasing the financial capability for Americans of all ages.
Bailey's other awards include having been named among Florida Trend Magazine's Legal Elite for 2016. In 2015, Bailey was honored by the Orlando Business Journal where she received the Women Who Mean Business Award. Previous awards include having been named Five Star Wealth Manager by Orlando Home & Leisure Magazine, and a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine. Bailey holds a rating of 10.0 from AVVO, the highest rating available from the nation's leading online legal services marketplace. In 2012, Bailed was inducted into the University of Central Florida College of Business Administration's Hall of Fame. She is an active member of several professional organizations, including the Florida Bar Association; the American Bar Association; the Orange County Bar Association; and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
