GULFPORT, Fla., July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A total of 111 Stetson University College of Law graduates were selected for inclusion among Florida's Legal Elite in the July 2016 Florida Trend magazine.
Stetson Law alumni Stephen D. Busey, Mark A. Hanley and Rhea F. Law are again included in the Legal Elite Hall of Fame, a distinguished group of attorneys who consistently earn high peer rankings in the annual Legal Elite voting. Busey is chairman of the Smith Hulsey & Busey law firm who received both his bachelor's and law degrees from Stetson University. Hanley is a partner at the Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, LLP law firm. Law is chair of the Buchanan Ingersoll Rooney P.C. firm's Florida offices, a member of the board of directors and co-chair of the firm's Diversity Committee. She is also a member of the Stetson University College of Law Hall of Fame.
This year's Florida Trend magazine lists 20 Stetson Law graduates as "up and coming" attorneys and four Stetson Law graduates as outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors among Florida's Legal Elite.
Florida's Legal Elite, now in its 13th edition, showcases attorneys chosen by their peers who exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession. Voting for this year's Legal Elite attorneys began in October 2015 when Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to participate. This year, 1,144 lawyers are listed among the Florida Legal Elite, representing fewer than 2 percent of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
