"Quarles has an excellent reputation for serving the needs of individuals, families and business owners with respect to estate planning, wealth preservation and probate and trust administration," Benzio says in the statement. "My clients will not only benefit from the firm's strong Florida presence, but as business and family life have become increasingly mobile, the firm's national presence and network of talented attorneys in numerous other areas of legal practice will be extremely valuable."
