Florida Super Lawyers Names Jones Foster Attorneys as 2024 Honorees

Jones Foster, a 100-year-old commercial and private client law firm, is pleased to announce that nearly half of our shareholders and senior counsel have been selected for inclusion in the 2024 edition of Florida Super Lawyers, a prestigious and select list of no more than 5% of the lawyers in the state.

Super Lawyers is a resource that rates outstanding lawyers who are nominated from more than 70 practice areas. A rigorous and patented multiphase selection process involving independent research and peer nomination is used to evaluate candidates who are measured against 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Attorneys who receive the highest point totals during the selection process are further recognized on the Florida Super Lawyers Top lists. Chairman Scott G. Hawkins and Vice Chair Theodore S. Kypreos both ranked on the Top 100: Miami list this year.

In addition, several Jones Foster litigation attorneys were named Florida Rising Stars, an honor that recognizes no more than 2.5% of eligible lawyers under 40 in the state. New to the Rising Stars list this year are Travis J. Foels, Brett T. Lashley, and Hanna B. Rubin, while Zachary M. Rothman was named a Rising Star for the fourth consecutive year. Alexander L. Brams and Spencer S. Keyser both earned the distinction for a second consecutive year.
