TAMPA, Fla. – Freeborn & Peters LLP is pleased to announce that four of the firm’s Tampa Partners have been named Florida Super Lawyers or Rising Stars for 2019.
Lawrence P. Ingram, Managing Partner of the firm’s Tampa office, and Jason P. Stearns both were named Super Lawyers, and Melissa B. Murphy and Robert A. Stines both were named Rising Stars.
Mr. Ingram is recognized for the practice areas of Professional Liability, Business Litigation, and Insurance. Ms. Murphy is recognized for Business Litigation and Civil Litigation. Mr. Stearns is recognized for Intellectual Property Litigation, Business Litigation, and Civil Litigation. Mr. Stines is listed for Business Litigation and Professional Liability.
“We congratulate Larry, Melissa, Jason and Robert for being named by Super Lawyers as among the top attorneys in Florida,” said Freeborn Co-Managing Partner William E. Russell. “They are an integral part of our Litigation Practice Group.”
Only the top 5 percent of lawyers in Florida are named Super Lawyers. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected as Rising Stars, who must be 40 years old or younger or have been in practice for 10 or fewer years. Published by Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers uses independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations to determine the honorees. The Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are published in the Florida Super Lawyers Magazine. Portions of the lists also will appear this summer in Tampa Bay Magazine and other regional Florida publications. The lists also are distributed to attorneys and ABA-accredited law school libraries.
