Jones Foster Attorneys Named 2023 Florida Super Lawyers, Rising Stars

Jones Foster, a private and commercial law firm based in West Palm Beach, Florida, is proud to announce that nearly 50% of our shareholders and senior counsel have been selected for inclusion in the 2023 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 service that rates outstanding lawyers who are nominated from more than 70 practice areas. Candidates go through a rigorous and patented multiphase selection process involving independent research, peer nomination, and evaluation in which they are measured against 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Lawyers who receive the highest point totals during the selection process are further recognized on the Florida Super Lawyers Top Lists. This year, vice chair and litigation shareholder Scott G. Hawkins ranked on the Top 100 list for the state of Florida, and both Scott and litigation shareholder Theodore S. Kypreos were ranked on the Top 100: Miami list.

Litigation associates were named Florida Super Lawyers Rising Stars, an honor that recognizes no more than 2.5% of attorneys in the state. Zachary M. Rothman was named a Rising Star for the third consecutive year with Alexander L. Brams and Spencer S. Keyser added to this year’s list.
