Why Is Pensacola the Perfect Place to Practice Law?

Pensacola, the oldest city in the United States founded in 1559, is situated on the Florida Panhandle and is one of the fastest growing areas in the region. With 224 sunny days each year and average temperature of 68' year-round and laid-back atmosphere, Pensacola is the ideal city to call home and enjoy outdoor activities by land, sea, and sky.

Pensacola is the most northwestern city in the Florida panhandle and is only 13 miles from the Alabama state border. The waterfront city, known for its white sand beaches and rich historical past, offers year-round residents a high-quality of life with endless outdoor activities, a strong employment market and top-rated healthcare. Pensacola’s population is approximately 54,000 (total Escambia County population is 321,905 persons). Pensacola is home to the exceptional Ascension Sacred Heart and its Children’s Hospital as well as the world-renowned Andrew’s Institute, Baptist Hospital and West Florida Hospital.

With its small-town charm, rich historic heritage, emerald-colored gulf waters and attractive real estate prices, Pensacola is commonly ranked as a top Florida city to call home. In 2021, Pensacola was officially ranked as the #5 "Best Place to Live" in all of Florida by US News & World Report. Pensacola is known by several nicknames: “Cradle of Naval Aviation”, “Emerald Coast” and “City of Five Flags”. Naval Air Station-Pensacola is based here and is home to the world-famous Blue Angels. The University of West Florida calls Pensacola home and keeps our city young and vibrant with students as does Pensacola Christian College and Pensacola State College. Our university and colleges provide exceptional sports including UWF National Champion Football.

The Pensacola real estate market offers some of the most attractive housing prices in all of Florida as compared to the larger, more populated metropolitan areas of the state. In early August of 2022, the median Pensacola home price is $248,113 and this represents a 28% year-over-year increase.

Pensacola's gulf beaches rank among the most beautiful in all of Florida and regularly receive top ratings each year by popular review sites such as Trip Advisor, Dr. Beach and USA Today. In 2020, Pensacola Beach officially ranked as the #4 "Best Beach in America" by Trip Advisor. The sugar like white powder sand, which stays cool on a hot summer's day and is located along the barrier islands of Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key. If you enjoy playing on the water, experience stand-up paddle boarding, surfing and kite surfing and swimming. By land, play a round of golf or explore our many recreational parks and nature trails or catch a Pensacola Blue Wahoo’s Minor League baseball game.

Pensacola is only a three-hour drive to New Orleans and the music and restaurant scene in our town is inspired by its proximity of New Orleans. Pensacola is home to James Beard award winning chefs and several Golden Spoon Restaurants. Restaurants like McGuires Irish Pub, the only recognized official Irish Pub outside of Ireland, Restaurant Iron and Angelena’s will keep any foodie satisfied. At the end of the day, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets bars and beachfront restaurants or enjoy the thriving Palafox street in downtown Pensacola.

The Pensacola cultural scene is unsurpassed for a town our size. We boast the “Big 5” in the Arts and Culture world with a Professional Symphony, Theater, Opera, Ballet and Art Museum. Pensacola has approximately 10 large festivals each year and celebrates one of the oldest Mardi Gras in the Country. You simply do not find the variety of arts and culture of this caliber in other towns our size.

The beauty of practicing law in Pensacola is that if you can put in a day’s work at the office in a great Palafox location, see the Blue Angels fly over on practice days and have plenty to do in the evenings. Our firm takes cases from all counties between Tallahassee (Leon County) and Pensacola (Escambia County) so you gain experience with a vast array of practice styles, attorneys, and Judges in the many circuit courts in the Panhandle. Our office is located just 10 minutes from the beach and a waterfront view is a short walk away. Pensacola is a wonderful place to raise a family, find your community, and maintain the elusive work/life balance that we all desire.
