Best Employment Law Attorneys in Florida

Lawyer Legion created this list of the top picks in 2024 for the best employment law attorneys in Florida. To rank the top employment lawyers and other lawyers in Florida, we used both objective and subjective criteria.

The best employment law attorneys were selected based on their career accomplishments, success in high-profile cases, professional involvement, community leadership, and board certifications.

This list represents some of the most highly accomplished employment lawyers currently practicing in Florida. When reviewing this list, please be aware of each of the following:

  • Lawyers cannot pay to be included in this list.
  • Only lawyers who are active on Lawyer Legion were selected.
  • No online directory can accurately determine a statewide list of attorneys who are actually “the best” at practicing employment law (but our list comes close).
