ORLANDO, FL – July 1, 2010 - Orlando partners James V. Etscorn, Brian C. Blair, David S. Oliver and Elizabeth Green, and associate David L. Evans, were listed among the "Florida Legal Elite" in the current issue of Florida Trend magazine.
Etscorn, Blair and Oliver were recognized in the Commercial Litigation practice area and Green in Bankruptcy & Workout. David Evans was recognized as an "Up and Coming" attorney.
Florida Trend's "Legal Elite" 2010 recognizes the top tier of attorneys practicing in Florida as chosen by their colleagues. The 2010 list names the top 1,160 attorneys in the state, who represent approximately 1.8% of the over 64,000 active Florida Bar members practicing in Florida.
Those named to the "Legal Elite" list have earned the trust and endorsement of their peers, as the nomination process involves all of Florida's practicing attorneys, who were asked to name lawyers whom they hold in the highest regard—lawyers with whom they have worked or would recommend to others. Florida Bar members were also asked to name three "best up and coming attorneys" who exhibit leadership in the law and in their local communities.
