Longwell Lawyers is proud to announce that not one, but two of our lawyers have been honored by Florida Trend Magazine this year. For their accomplished work in the criminal defense arena, Attorneys Mark Longwell and Carmen Tankersley have been named in the prestigious 2015 Florida’s Legal Elite list.
For the last 13 years, Florida Trend Magazine has polled Florida’s legal community in order to identify the most respected and trusted counselors practicing statewide. According to their site: “Lawyers were asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. Voters were also asked to name three ‘up and coming’ attorneys, and in a separate category, outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors.”
This polling occurs for months and results in one of the most well-regarded industry lists in Florida. Only 1,144 made the 2016 list, which is less than two percent of active Florida Bar members currently practicing.
Attorney Mark Longwell was honored in the Criminal Law category. For more than 25 years, Attorney Longwell has been practicing law and garnering industry honors. He has not only been named a Top Attorney in Criminal Defense by the Avvo legal directory but has also been AV® Rated Martindale-Hubbell®—one of the industry’s most sought-after distinctions.
Attorney Carmen Tankersley was named in the Florida’s Legal Elite “Up and Coming” category and in her young career, she has already shown great promise in both the criminal law and family law practice areas. She too is AV® Rated Martindale-Hubbell® and maintains memberships in some of Florida’s prestigious legal associations, including the Central Florida Association for Women Lawyers, the Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida, and the Central Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, among others.
We congratulate both Attorney Mark Longwell and Attorney Carmen Tankersley for this latest industry honor and look forward to more of their dedicated, compassionate, and effective work on behalf of our clients.
