ORLANDO, FL – Each year, Florida Trend magazine recognizes the state’s top attorneys as selected by their peers. Four Rumberger Kirk & Caldwell partners – Daniel J. Gerber, Douglas B. Brown, Robert L. Blank and Francis H. Sheppard – have earned recognition in Florida Legal Elite 2010.

All four partners are recognized for the accomplishments in litigation including trial work -- Blank and Gerber were selected in the area of Civil Trial, Brown for Commercial Litigation and Sheppard for Labor and Employment. 

The sixth annual edition of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite is a prestigious roster recognizing 1.9% of the approximately 61,500 active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida. Beginning in October 2008, all in-state members of the Florida Bar were invited to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard. 

More than 18,000 votes were processed, checked and tabulated by Outsource American and Suncoast Opinion Surveys. A panel comprised of 2009 Legal Elite lawyers from around the state then reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists.
