Mark your calendars: The selection process for 2016 Florida Super Lawyers is officially underway. If you haven’t already, visit http://my.superlawyers.com to get started. Filling out your attorney profile is the first step, nominations are the second. Nominations are due by November 2, 2015. It is important to remember that a nomination from an attorney outside of your firm holds approximately 3 times more weight than in-firm nominations. If you are already a Super Lawyer, update your profile for the coming year.
Voting for next year’s Florida Legal Elite has also begun and is open to all members of the Florida Bar actively residing and practicing in Florida. You can vote for attorneys within your firm, but you must vote for an equal or greater number of attorneys outside of your firm. Simply go to FloridaTrend.com/LegalEliteVote16 to submit your ballot. Attorneys selected for Florida Legal Elite 2016 will be listed in the July 2016 issue of Florida Trend Magazine. The voting deadline is December 1, 2015.
The strategic value of obtaining legal awards in your particular area of practice is an excellent way to gain an edge over your competition and add credibility to your name and firm. Here’s a secret… Half the chance of winning awards like Florida Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, Top Lawyers and Florida Trend’s Legal Elite is simply being nominated. This typically takes just a few peer nominations.
Submission requirements and deadline dates are critical. At Pristine PR we stay on top of these for you and have been successful in getting our clients featured in some of the top legal publications as recipients of these awards. Don’t forget to showcase these awards on your firm’s website, social media sites, your office and everywhere else! Custom award badges are available for purchase at American Registry and are complimentary to Pristine PR clients.
