Jeanne L. Seewald, Theodore L. Tripp Jr., Joel W. Hyatt

Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP is pleased to announce that Andrew J. Krause, Jeanne L. Seewald and Theodore L. Tripp Jr. have been selected as 2022 Florida Super Lawyers®, while Joel W. Hyatt and John Paul Bratcher have earned inclusion on the 2022 Florida Rising Stars® list. The list of Super Lawyers represents no more than five percent of lawyers in the state, while Florida’s Rising Stars recognize the top 2.5% of up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years old or younger and have been practicing for 10 years or less.

“The consistency and longevity of peer recognition that Andy, Jeanne and Ted earn from Super Lawyers represents the quality of service our Firm’s clients can expect,” Hahn Loeser CEO and Managing Partner Stanley R. Gorom, III said of having three Florida partners with 16 or more consecutive years of accolades. “And Joel and John Paul represent the level of service our clients can expect from our younger partners. I commend all five attorneys for their continued efforts.”
