LeMieux's old firm moves in near Capitol. Is George ready to join them?

The prominent West Palm Beach law firm of Gunster Yoakley & Stewart has moved into new offices in downtown Tallahassee that happen to be just across the street from the Florida Capitol. The new offices at 215 S. Monroe St. are so new that there's just a little blurb on the law firm website that says "More info coming soon."
