Real estate attorney Colby Keefe has been elected a stockholder at Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt P.A., one of the largest law firms in Southwest Florida.
Keefe joined the firm in 2021, according to a statement, and has since "steadily worked to distinguish herself as a highly-effective representative for condominium and homeowners’ associations." Based out of the firm's Fort Myers office, Keefe obtained her undergraduate degree at Flagler College and her J,D, at the University of Georgia School of Law.
"She has been a superstar in our real estate and association law practice since she joined the firm in 2021 and will only continue to excel in her career," Real Estate Department Chair Amanda Barritt says in the release. "She is a valuable asset to the firm, our clients and our community.”
Keefe works with clients on a broad range of issues, the firm says, including the interpretation and amending of governing documents, contracting with vendors, zoning ordinances, liability policies, collections, foreclosures and compliance with applicable state and federal laws, such as the Fair Housing Act.
"This accomplishment is considered by many to be a career milestone, but it is only as honorable as the group of attorneys, staff, and team that I am surrounded by," Keefe says in the release. "I am deeply honored to be named a partner at Henderson Franklin and join the stellar attorneys who have achieved this before me. I am grateful for the many mentors at the firm who continue to support my growth. I feel privileged to serve clients alongside this team."
Henderson Franklin has served the legal needs and communities of Southwest Florida since 1924. The firm is the largest, locally based law firm between Tampa and Miami, with over 55 attorneys dedicated to providing a wide range of legal services. It operates offices in Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Naples and Sarasota (by appointment).
