Gaylord Merlin Ludovici & Diaz partners Andrew DiazCary Gaylord, and Lorena Ludovici have been named to Florida Trend magazine’s 2019 “Legal Elite,” which recognizes the top attorneys in the state based on voting by their peers.  Andrew Diaz and Cary Gaylord are also recognized in the Legal Elite “Hall of Fame,” a distinguished group of attorneys who have consistently earned high rankings from their peers in the annual Legal Elite voting.

Florida Trend’s Legal Elite process involves asking actively practicing Florida attorneys to name the attorneys that 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 lawyers represents less than 1.3 percent of attorneys in the state in private practice as well as government and non-profit attorneys.
