Florida Super Lawyers Names Nine Rumberger Kirk & Caldwell Attorneys to 2017 List
Eight Attorneys Named “Rising Stars”
FLORIDA – June 5, 2017 - Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell is pleased to announce that 18 attorneys have been selected for inclusion in the 2017 edition of Florida Super Lawyers.
Super Lawyers is a comprehensive guide to the top 5 percent of attorneys in the state, as chosen by their peers and categorized by city and practice area.
Through peer nominations and independent research by Law & Politics magazine, attorneys are asked to nominate the best lawyers they’ve personally observed in action. Safeguards are placed to avoid ballot manipulation, such as lawyers nominating themselves or “stacking” the ballots with only colleagues from within their own firms. Further evaluation is done based on peer recognition and professional achievement. Florida Super Lawyers is based on a survey of approximately 44,000 ballots of attorneys who have been in practice for more than five years.
The following Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell attorneys have been named to Florida Super Lawyers:
Scott M. Sarason – Personal Injury Defense: Products Liability
Daniel J. Gerber – Business Litigation

J. Scott Kirk – Personal Injury Defense: General
Larry M. Roth – Personal Injury Defense – Products Liability
Leonard J. Dietzen, III – Employment & Labor

The selection process for Rising Stars is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process except that a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten years or less, and Rising Stars candidates do not go through a peer evaluation by practice area.
