Parrotheads can serenade themselves in traffic about lost salt shakers to their hearts’ content as they drive down State Road A1A, now renamed “Jimmy Buffet Memorial Highway,” thanks to one of two bills signed late last week. 

Gov. Ron De Santis, R-FL, signed the bills that will now honor the late singer who passed away last September from a type of skin cancer, according to reporting from CBS Miami. The first bill would name State Road A1A after Buffet and the second would create a “Margaritaville” specialty license plate in honor of his most famous song. Proceeds from the specialty license plate will go to the Singing For Change Charitable Foundation founded by Buffet and initially funded by the earnings of his 1995 summer tour. The bills are slated to take effect starting Oct. 1. 

Buffet was among some of the most influential clients represented by Leesfield & Partners, a personal injury and wrongful death law firm that opened its doors in 1976. The law firm’s Founder and Managing Partner, Ira H. Leesfield, spoke about his friendship with Buffet and history representing him as an attorney during an interview with the Two Lawyers Walk Into A Bar podcast hosted by Cooper Knowlton and Lee Bergstein, partners at a New York City-based real estate law firm.
