Super Lawyers has selected Michael Elkins, Esq., founder and partner at Fort Lauderdale-based MLE Law, to its 2020 Florida Super Lawyers list.
Elkins, who has spent the majority of his career working in large to mid-size Florida law firms, is an almost 20-year litigator representing businesses, municipalities and individuals in labor and employment matters as well as providing outside General Counsel services (daily corporate advice, preparation and review of corporate documents, creation of corporate entities, merger and acquisition representation). Elkins assists clients with their day-to-day legal needs, administrative claims, matters pending in courts at any level, and employer/employee specific issues.
Elkins founded MLE Law to modernize the business of law by, among other things, rejecting the use of traditional brick and mortar office space and providing alternative fee structures wherein clients are not charged for phoning, emailing or texting about their matters. The firm allows for modern, efficient and global representation while only charging clients for actual legal work produced.
Elkins is also changing the way lawyers grow their business. He is the founder, producer and host of Game 7: The Sports, Business & Lifestyle Podcast. Elkins’ podcast has grown from a local to national show, where he now interviews some of the top people concerning the intersection between business and sports. Elkins is an active user of social media platforms. MLE Law’s transparency can be seen on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the Super Lawyers honor.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. Super Lawyers Magazines also feature editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in the practice of law.

“This is a great honor to be selected to the 2020 Florida Super Lawyers list,” said Elkins. “Only a small number of attorneys in each state are named to the list, and I feel that this designation reflects my dedication to the legal profession and the efficient, transparent and price-predictable services I provide.”
