The Florida Legal Elite are the top lawyers practicing in Florida, according to the results of the magazine's statewide attorney surveys, and represent fewer than two percent of Florida Bar members actively practicing in Florida. To be considered a Hall of Famer, an attorney must have been a Legal Elite winner for each of the past five years. A panel of lawyers was consulted to evaluate the Legal Elite and make the final selection of Hall of Fame honorees.
