STFBC Included in 2024 Best Law Firms™


For decades, STFBC has taken on some of the most challenging legal causes across the nation. We’ve relentlessly advocated on behalf of victims of medical malpractice and defective products, and we’ve led the charge in anti-hazing litigation and legislation.

Our strength lies in our agility and single-minded focus. Rather than dissipating our resources into operating a high-volume practice, we invest where it matters most: our clients and their causes. We’ve always focused on a small number of cases to ensure that we can provide our clients with the attention and dedication they deserve while maximizing their results.

What is Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms”?

The Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” is a testament to unparalleled legal prowess and professionalism. An endeavor by Best Lawyers®, this list meticulously curates law firms that epitomize excellence, gauged through stringent peer evaluations and rigorous independent research. To even be considered, a firm must include an attorney who made it to the recent edition of The Best Lawyers in America®.

The list delves deeper than national rankings, classifying firms across three tiers on a national level and within 188 distinct metropolitan regions. While national rankings span 75 practice areas, metropolitan areas can boast rankings for up to 127 practice areas. The essence of the tier system stems from invaluable insights procured from the Law Firm Leaders survey, where participants lend their perspective on preeminent firms across 75 nationally ranked areas. The tiers represent feedback from a staggering 10 million evaluations of paramount attorneys spread across 20,000 firms nationwide.

Best Lawyers Methodology

The process of selection is as rigorous as it is comprehensive:

  • Firms are filtered based on their nominations in that year’s Best Lawyers®.
  • Selected law firms are handed submission packets intended for feedback from former clients. These clients are probed on various parameters, from the firm’s acumen and responsiveness to its cost-effectiveness. Best Lawyers’ own nomination ballots further fuel this process by including queries on a firm’s competitive stature, referral prospects, and domain expertise. This data from Best Lawyers voting is a cornerstone in sculpting the Best Law Firms scores.
  • Quantitative and qualitative feedback is funneled into an overarching “Best Law Firms” score.
  • Firms are benchmarked against their peers within the same practice and metropolitan domain. The tiers are stratified somewhat akin to a curved grading system, with Tier 1 housing firms close to the highest-scoring ones, and subsequent tiers expanding in their score range.

We are proud to announce STFBC has been lauded by Best Law Firms with top-tier rankings:

  • Tier 1 in Miami for Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
  • Tier 1 in Miami for Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
  • Tier 1 in Miami for Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

Such awards are a testament to the confidence we’ve earned from plaintiffs and colleagues. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our clients and peers who put their trust in our advocacy.
