Now it its 14th year, this list recognizes a prestigious group of attorneys chosen by their peers across the state. Florida Trend asked lawyers in Florida to name attorneys they hold in the highest regard or whom they would recommend to others. The lawyers named to this year’s Florida Legal Elite 2017 represent fewer than two percent of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.

Their commitment to excellence both in their practice and in service to their clients is exemplary, and they are certainly well deserving of this honor.”
