Attorney Chris Carlyle has been named again to Florida Trend Magazine’s Legal Elite. This is the twelfth time Mr. Carlyle has received this prestigious recognition.

Less than 2% of active Florida Bar members practicing in Florida appear among the exclusive Florida Legal Elite. Now in its 19th year, Florida Legal Elite presents the state’s top licensed and practicing attorneys selected by their peers.

Florida Trend invites all in-state members of the Florida Bar to name attorneys whom they highly regard or would recommend to others. An outside vendor tabulates all ballots, and attorneys are scored based on the number of votes they received, with more weight applied to votes from outside their own firms.

The list of top vote recipients is then examined using Florida Bar membership status and histories. A panel of previous Legal Elite honorees from across the state representing different practice areas review the list of finalists.
