Prominent attorney elevated to shareholder at area law firm

Carlton Fields’ Tampa office has promoted health care specialist Jonathan “Tre” Dixon III.

TAMPA — Jonathan “Tre” Dixon III has been promoted to shareholder at the Tampa office of Carlton Fields, a law firm that also operates in Orlando, Miami, West Palm Beach, Tallahassee, Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

According to a press release, Dixon’s promotion was made official at the firm’s annual general meeting held earlier this month in St. Petersburg.

Dixon, a health care law specialist, joined the firm in August 2018 after serving as in-house counsel and senior vice president at Tampa General Hospital. He is also a veteran, having served six years in the U.S. Air Force.

In the Air Force, Dixon was part of the Judge Advocate General Corps. JAG officers deliver justice via courts-martial and deal with other issues related to military law. 

“What makes this transition so rewarding is the ability to problem-solve and provide solutions for a more diverse group of clients,” Dixon told the Business Observer in October 2018. “I get to appear to be the hero for a number of different clients, but that’s because of the wealth of knowledge that we have as a law firm.”
