Top 1.4% of Florida Lawyers Named to Legal Elite

| 6/22/2020

Less than 2% of active Florida Bar members practicing in Florida appear among the exclusive Florida Legal Elite. Now in its 17th year, Florida Legal Elite presents the state’s top licensed and practicing attorneys selected by their peers.

Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to name attorneys whom they highly regard or would recommend to others. Voters were also asked to name three “up and coming” attorneys, and outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors.

An outside vendor tabulated all ballots, and attorneys were scored based on the number of votes they received, with more weight applied to votes from outside their own firms. 

The list of top vote recipients was examined using Florida Bar membership status and histories. A panel of previous Legal Elite honorees from across the state representing different practice areas reviewed the list of finalists.
