Neal Sonnett is a former Assistant United States Attorney and Chief of the Criminal Division for the Southern District of Florida and a nationally prominent white-collar criminal defense lawyer who heads his own Miami law firm.
Among his many awards, Neal was named a 2009 “Legal Legend” by the 11th Judicial Circuit Historical Society and the 2007 “Alumnus of Distinction” by the University of Miami School of Law. He received the ADL Jurisprudence Award for his “distinguished service and inspiring leadership in preserving liberty, counteracting bigotry and advancing the cause of human rights.” He also received the Florida Bar Foundation Medal of Honor, the highest award given to a lawyer by the legal profession in Florida, in recognition of his “dedicated service in improving the administration of the criminal justice system and in protecting individual rights precious to our American Constitutional form of government.”
Neal Sonnett has been a supporter of HistoryMiami Museum for more than 30 years. He explains that he’s lived in Miami for almost all of his life: “I attended high school, college, and law school in Miami, and I’ve practiced law here for many, many years. HistoryMiami Museum is an important part of this community and I want to do my part to support it and take advantage of the many programs that it offers. I just wish I had more time to be even more involved.”
Neal points to the variety of excellent programs and tours that HistoryMiami Museum offers. “The programs provide a wonderful experience for both residents and tourists, and the fact that the Museum is a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate is a big plus.”
Neal further stated to us, “I believe that HistoryMiami Museum is becoming more and more important to our community. It serves as a chronicler and exhibitor of important historical information for residents and visitors, I try to visit museums in other cities when I travel, and I hope visitors to Miami will visit HistoryMiami Museum to learn Miami’s story.
Neal mentioned that he is glad to support the Museum and spread the word. “I tell my friends and colleagues that HistoryMiami Museum membership will enrich their lives and, as civic minded residents, they should join me in strongly supporting HistoryMiami Museum.”
In recognition of his many years as a nationally prominent attorney, Neal was chosen as a 2009 Miami “Legal Legend,” an award hosted by the Museum. “It was a very special honor for me, made even more magical because I sat with Judge William Hoeveler and Albert Krieger, two other honorees whom I considered mentors and personal heroes.”
Members like Neal Sonnet are heroes to HistoryMiami Museum. The annual support that membership provides is one of the reasons that the museum will turn 80 in 2020. Longevity such as the museum has enjoyed, is owed in part to the many members that believe in and support us.
