ST. PETERSBURG, FL. (June 22, 2016) – The state’s top lawyers are recognized in the 2016 edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,144 honorees includes attorneys in private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys.

“For the past 13 years, our 250,000 readers have turned to Florida Legal Elite as a guide to help select a trusted legal partner to handle many crucial corporate assignments,” says Publisher Andrew Corty. “This July issue provides a valuable resource for these readers, and the website offers another pathway to access this key information."

Florida's Legal Leaders

To compile the list, Florida Trend invited all actively practicing Florida lawyers to name the attorneys that they hold in highest regard – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others. The winner list represents fewer than 2% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.

Florida Bar President William J. Schifino, Jr. notes, “My goal is to engage and utilize the incredible resources of legal leaders throughout the state. For the public and our profession, Florida Legal Elite offers a guide to outstanding attorneys recommended by their peers.”
