This is a special report highlighting the works of legal industry leaders from Florida in the DBR’s annual Professional Excellence Awards.
 
This introduces three finalists for the Attorney of the Year Award, lifetime achievers, distinguished leaders in law, and the top in-house legal departments and top litigation departments of the year, and more than two dozen lawyers under 40 whose careers have already been marked by notable achievements.
 
The lifetime honorees and distinguished leaders are household names in legal circles from a senior federal judge nearing retirement to a former law school dean who has moved on to Washington.
 
The litigators and corporate counsel have dealt with everything from environmental pollution liability to MTV stars.

All of the honorees will be recognized at an event set May 24 at the Rusty Pelican in Miami, where the attorney of the year will be announced.
