From the 500 Vault: Steve Yerrid

STEVE YERRID, prominent plaintiffs' attorney of Tampa-based The Yerrid Law Firm, P.A., a perenial member of our Lawdragon 500 guides and the subject of our 2007 feature, The Verdict.

Photographer Melissa Lyttle shot Florida legal legend Yerrid for the 2011 Magazine. For each Lawdragon 500 spread, we try to get at least a handful of attorneys outside the office, just to shake things up a little. It's not always possible, but Yerrid loves the water. This was one of our readers' favorite shots from the 2011 book.

We first profiled Yerrid's work for the 2007 magazine featuring the Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiffs' Lawyers, in a story called The Verdict, which detailed the case of a client of Yerrid's who was paralyzed after a misdiagnosed stroke. We also later did a Lawyer Limelight on him to discuss his work for the state of Florida on the Gulf oil spill litigation.
