Florida Super Lawyers Names 11 RK Attorneys to 2014 List; Ten Named Rising Stars

FLORIDA – June 9, 2014 – RumbergerKirk is pleased to announce that 11 attorneys have been selected for inclusion in the 2014 edition of Florida Super Lawyers. In addition, 10 lawyers were named Florida Super Lawyers “Rising Stars.”

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. 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 attorneys have been selected for inclusion:


Scott M. Sarason – Person Injury Defense: Products Liability


Douglas B. Brown – Consumer Law
Lori J. Caldwell – Civil Litigation Defense
Ernest “Skip” Eubanks – Personal Injury Defense: Products Liability
Daniel J. Gerber – Business Litigation

Bud Kirk – Business Litigation
Larry M. Roth – Personal Injury Defense: Products Liability


Leonard Dietzen III – Employment & Labor


Robert L. Blank – Personal Injury Defense: General
J. Richard Caldwell, Jr. – Personal Injury Defense: Products Liability

No more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. 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.

The following attorneys have been named as Rising Stars:


Brooke L. Ehrlich – Civil Litigation Defense
Marty Fulgueira Elfenbein – Civil Litigation Defense
