State’s Top Lawyers Named by Peer Voting
Legal Elite featured in FLORIDA TREND special report.
ST. PETERSBURG, FL. (June 22, 2017) – The state’s top lawyers are recognized in the 2017
edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,080 honorees includes attorneys in
private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys.
“For the past 14 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
FloridaTrend.com website offers another pathway to access this key information."
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 just over 1% of the active Florida Bar
members who practice in Florida.
“The Florida Bar is committed to connecting both our members and the public with the legal
resources needed to support their practices, businesses and daily lives. Florida Trend’s Legal Elite
helps accomplish this objective by creating an independent and reliable process to identify our
state’s top legal talent and rising stars,” notes Florida Bar President, Michael J. Higer.
The entire Legal Elite roster, including Hall of Fame inductees and top Up and Comers, can be
viewed at www.FloridaTrend.com/Legal-Elite.
