Karen Persis was recently honored with Florida Trend magazine’s Legal Elite Up and Comer award. Selection was determined by lawyers voting on their peers. Each lawyer was given a score based on the number of votes received. The top vote-getters were further examined using data provided by the Florida Bar. A panel of previous Legal Elite winners, representing different practice areas in cities across the state, reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists. Fewer than 2% of active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida are named to Florida Trend’s Legal Elite lists. Karen Persis is proud to join such an accomplished list of attorneys.
