ST. PETERSBURG, FL. – The state’s top lawyers are recognized in the 2019 edition

of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,126 honorees includes attorneys in private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys.

“For the past 16 years, our 250,000 readers have turned to Florida Legal Elite as a guide to help select trusted legal partners to handle many crucial corporate assignments,” says Publisher David Denor. “This July issue provides a valuable resource for these readers, and offers an additional 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.

Florida Bar President John M. Stewart remarks, “The Florida Bar and its more than 106,000 members are meeting the challenge of adapting the practice of law with evolving technologies to better serve our clients and the public. Lawyers from across our vast state, representing practices small and large, are embracing these efforts, which are making legal services more affordable to many and helping to close the justice gap. For the public and our profession,

Florida Trend’s Legal Elite remains a reliable guide to Florida’s top legal talent, as recommended by their peers.”
