ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (June 27, 2013) – The state’s top lawyers are recognized in the 2013 edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,228 honorees includes attorneys in private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys.
"Florida Trend’s 250,000 readers are executives who rely on the legal community for a multitude of corporate assignments,” says Publisher Andrew Corty. "When we first published Florida Legal Elite in 2004, our goal was to provide a valuable resource for our readers. Over the past 10 years, I’ve heard many accolades about the program. Florida Legal Elite is a guide to selecting a trusted legal partner to handle delicate business concerns."
To compile the list, Florida Trend invited all actively practicing Florida lawyers to name the attorneys that they hold in highest regard as professionals – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others.
Florida Bar President Eugene K. Pettis notes, “In an ever crowded profession, it’s even more important to the public and the profession to identify exceptional attorneys; Florida Legal Elite is a great resource for this task.”
The entire Legal Elite report, including the Hall of Fame and top Up and Comers, can be viewed by practice areas and region at www.FloridaTrend.com/LegalElite.
