2008 Florida Trend’s Legal Elite
The fifth annual edition of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite names the top 1,170 attorneys who have earned the trust and endorsement of their peers-those who know their work best. This prestigious roster represents 1.9% of the approximately 61,500 active Florida Bar members who practice law in the State of Florida. Florida Trend sends ballots to all in-state members of The Florida Bar. Lawyers were asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard—attorneys with whom they have worked or would recommend to others. The ballots were processed, checked and tabulated by Bradenton-based Outsource America and Suncoast Opinion Surveys in St. Petersburg, Florida. The list of finalists was further examined using membership status and histories provided by The Florida Bar. Source: Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite, July 2008.
