4 STFBC Attorneys Named to Best Lawyers 2022


Our firm is proud to announce that Attorneys Gary Fox, David Bianchi, Stephen Cain, and Michael Levine have all been named to the 2022 edition of The Best Lawyers in America© for Personal Injury Litigation. Additionally, Mr. Fox was included for Medical Malpractice Law, and Mr. Bianchi was included for Product Liability Litigation.

While recognition by Best Lawyers® is an achievement on its own, inclusion in the 2022 edition is a landmark achievement for Gary and David in particular. David has been a Best Lawyers honoree since 2012, and Gary has been an honoree 20 times since 1999! For both, inclusion is a testament to their formidable reputation in the Florida legal community and nationwide personal injury practice.

The Best Lawyers® Methodology

Best Lawyers begins with a nationwide nomination process. Nominees are organized by area and practice, and previous honorees are then tasked with offering a frank evaluation of candidates in their region and practice area. These reviews are strictly confidential, and reviewers cannot select which attorneys they review.

Then, all the nominees are put on a ballot for a general vote among current Best Lawyers selectees. Each nominee receives a score of 1–5 by voters, based on how likely the voter would refer a case to that lawyer. For voters unfamiliar with an attorney's work, they can mark "Do Not Know" so as not to skew the score.

Finally, Best Lawyers research staff will verify each attorney's standing with their local or state bar association. This ensures that lawyers meet a high ethical standard before being included. Once that's verified, attorneys are awarded inclusion based on the practice areas for which they scored high. The resulting list is a roster of lawyers practicing at the highest level, advocates who are proven to be a "lawyer's lawyer."

Our firm is honored to be included in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America alongside the nation's most well-known and noteworthy advocates. Our gratitude to Best Lawyers for this honor, but our most profound gratitude goes to our clients. It's their stories and struggles that have made us the advocates we are.
