TAMPA, FL – Tampa-based labor and employment law firm Johnson Jackson PLLC today announced four of its seven attorneys have been selected for inclusion in the 29th Edition of Best Lawyers in America©. Partners Kevin Johnson, Erin Jackson, and Christopher Bentley have each been named as 2023 Best Lawyers in America. Senior Associate Ashley Gallagher was named to the 2023 Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America list.
This marks the 15th consecutive year that Johnson has earned recognition in Best Lawyers, and is the 8th consecutive year for Jackson. Bentley, named a Best Lawyer in 2023, appeared on the Ones to Watch list in 2022. Gallagher has been named in the Ones to Watch category in 2023.
Lawyers appearing on the Best Lawyers in America© and Ones to Watch in America lists are selected by peer review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Once a lawyer is included on the lists, they must receive enough votes in subsequent years to remain in each edition.
“It’s a great honor for our firm’s attorneys to receive this continued recognition from our peers,” says Kevin Johnson, Johnson Jackson Founding Shareholder. “Our team of attorneys takes pride in everything we do to serve our clients and provide trusted advice on all employment matters. To receive this honor from others we work alongside in the field is something we consider to be one of the highest levels of praise.”
