Fifteen Shutts & Bowen attorneys have been recognized as Florida’s Legal Elite 2018 by Florida Trend. These attorneys are chosen by their peers and considered the top attorneys in the state. Hank Jackson, Suzanne Youmans Labrit, and Michael Jay Rune II are listed for the first time. Ella Shenhav and Michael Silver are listed as Up and Comers.
Published by Florida Trend, the Legal Elite listing is widely regarded as one of the preeminent referral guides to the legal profession. During the voting process, lawyers are asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. A panel of previous Legal Elite winners, representing different practice areas in cities across the state, reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists. The resulting list of 1,012 lawyers represents less than 1.2% of active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
