June 27, 2019

TAMPA – Phelps Dunbar Tampa partners Brian Albritton, Karl Brandes, Bret Feldman, Michael Hooker, Dennis McClelland, John Mullen, John PhillipsWilliam "Josh" Podolsky and Seth Schimmel have been named to Florida Trend’s 2019 “Legal Elite,” which recognizes the top lawyers in the state based on voting by their peers.

Active Florida lawyers were asked to name lawyers they hold in highest regard as professionals – lawyers with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others. The votes are tallied using a formula that gives more weight to votes cast from outside a lawyer’s current firm. The final list of 1,126 honorees represents less than 2 percent of lawyers in the state in private practice as well as government and non-profit lawyers.

Brian, Karl, Bret, Michael and Seth practice in the firm's litigation department, Josh practices in the firm's business department, while John, Dennis and John practice in the area of labor and employment.
