Michael Elkins, Esq., Founder and Partner of MLE Law, Selected to 2023 Florida Super Lawyers List

Super Lawyers has named Michael Elkins, Esq., founder and partner of Fort Lauderdale-based MLE Law, to its 2023 Florida Super Lawyers List. This year’s designation marks Elkins’ fifth consecutive year being selected as a Super Lawyer (2019–2023).

Elkins, a 20+ year litigation attorney, continues to disrupt how lawyers attract and retain business. As the creator and host of the “Quarter Four” podcast, which he founded in 2018, he is using modern media to not only promote MLE Law, but his overall brand. The podcast covers the intersection between business and sports, providing listeners an inside look into the psychology of what makes individuals successful on and off the field.

“It is a great honor to once again be selected to the Florida Super Lawyers list, especially because I was selected by my peers in the legal field,” said Elkins. “I’m proud to continue to be a changemaker in today’s legal industry, as I utilize technology to make the business of law more efficient and beneficial for clients.”

Each year, no more than 5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the Super Lawyers distinction. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the Rising Stars honor.
