John Hager and Brett Schwartz Named 2015 Legal Elite Award Winners

By Hager & Schwartz, P.A.

April 10, 2015

The title of 2015 Florida Legal Elite has been awarded to our lead attorneys, Brett Schwartz and John Hager. Winners are chosen through peer review votes, choosing whom they believe are most eligible for this honorary title. All members are other attorneys from around the state of Florida.

A variety of factors play a role in choosing the topmost attorneys from the rest of the bunch. This includes their membership status within the Florida Bar, their accolades, and their history working as attorneys in the state. All attorneys are also eligible to be chosen.

Here is an interesting statistic: only less than 2% of attorneys in the entire state can be selected for this coveted title. For Mr. Schwartz and Mr. Hager, this represents the dedication our attorneys have as they traverse on the road to becoming truly elite and a cut above the rest.

According to Florida Trend, this list is expected to reach the following:

"58,954 executives, civic leaders, top government officials, legal professionals and investment firms…plus 2,500 reprints are distributed by top attorneys and advertisers.

The section will appear on with advertiser's link for 12 months."

The official list will appear in the forthcoming July 2015 edition of Florida Trend.
