Personal Injury Attorney Michael Weiss of Blaut Weiss Among Florida Trend Magazine's Legal Elite for 2014

South Florida personal injury attorney Michael Weiss is recognized in the 2014 edition of Florida Trend's Florida Legal Elite.

Blaut Weiss Law Group is pleased to announce that shareholder Michael Weiss has been recognized in the 2014 edition of Florida Trend's Florida Legal Elite™. The list of 1,165 honorees, published in the July issue of Florida Trend magazine, includes attorneys in private practice, as well as top government and non-profit attorneys.

"It is truly an honor to have been selected and to be in the company of so many distinguished attorneys," said Weiss. "This recognition is particularly important because it is based on the nominations of my legal peers."

Lawyers are asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. "With technology changing the legal profession faster than the speed of light, it's nice to know there are still some very reliable and time-tested pillars left in our community like the Legal Elite peer review process. This resource provides highly reliable data on our most exceptional attorneys," said Florida Bar President Gregory W. Coleman.

Weiss, and law partner Milton Blaut, both personal injury attorneys, launched their own firm earlier this year. The two have a combined 60 years of experience in handling thousands of injury cases including wrongful death, defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, insurance disputes, premises liability, animal attacks, automobile, truck, motorcycle and boating accidents.

Weiss earned his law degree from the University of Miami School of Law and Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Union College in Schenectady, New York. He is Peer-rated "AV" Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell. He also was named one of South Florida's top rated lawyers in 2012 by American Lawyer Media.
