Fowler White Burnett Attorneys Make Florida Elite List

Miami, FL  – Fowler White Burnett attorneys Susan H. Aprill; James N. Hurley, Christopher E. Knight and Fabian A. Pal have been named to Florida Trend magazine’s 2014 Florida Legal Elite list.

Now in its eleventh edition, the Florida Legal Elite list is a prestigious roster of attorneys chosen for highest honors by their peers. The 1,165 lawyers listed this year exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession, and by so doing, have garnered the respect and esteem of their colleagues.

Voting for this year's Legal Elite attorneys began when Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar 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 the list of finalists.

The resulting lists represent fewer than 2 percent of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida. For more information, click here.
