The Legal Elite Hall of Fame includes two Stetson Law alumni, Mark A. Hanley JD ’80 and Rhea F. Law JD ’79. The Hall of Fame honors attorneys who have consistently ranked in the top tier in Legal Elite voting for several years.

This year, 20 Stetson Law alumni listed among Florida’s Legal Elite were also selected by their peers as “up and coming” attorneys and three Stetson Law alumni were voted outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors.

Florida’s Legal Elite, now in its 11th edition, showcases attorneys chosen by their peers who exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession. All in-state members of the Florida Bar are asked to vote. The resulting list of Florida’s Legal Elite represents fewer than 2% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in the state.
