Orlando's Best Lawyers 2017

When you need an attorney, you want someone with a strong reputation and a proven track record. The annual Best Lawyers® list provides the names of Orlando-area attorneys recommended by their colleagues in the field. A national attorney evaluation firm, Woodward/White, Inc., conducted an extensive peer-review survey asking established local lawyers to name top practitioners in their particular fields. The lawyers were asked: “If you had a close friend or relative who needed a lawyer, and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them?” The 2017 list has more than 400 lawyers listed in dozens of fields. Lawyers are listed alphabetically by specialty area. Woodward/White, Inc. and Orlando magazine have made every effort to ensure that the list is accurate.


You can narrow your search by city, zip code or specialty. To find a specific practice, enter their name in the search bar below.


This list is excerpted from the 2017 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, the pre-eminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. Published since 1983, Best Lawyers lists attorneys in 140 specialties, representing all 50 states, who have been chosen through an exhaustive survey in which thousands of the nation’s top lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The 2017 edition of Best Lawyers is based on more than 6.2 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
