Partner Eli Stiers is honored to be recognized as a member of the 2020 class of Florida Trend's "Legal Elite" in the field of Civil Trial/Litigation. This is his second time being selected by Florida Trend and his first since opening Stiers Law in 2015. Congratulations to Mr. Stiers!
Less than 2% of active Florida Bar members practicing in Florida appear among the exclusive Florida Legal Elite. Now in its 17th year, Florida Legal Elite presents the state’s top licensed and practicing attorneys selected by their peers.
Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to name attorneys whom they highly regard or would recommend to others. Voters were also asked to name three “up and coming” attorneys, and outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors.
An outside vendor tabulated all ballots, and attorneys were scored based on the number of votes they received, with more weight applied to votes from outside their own firms.
The list of top vote recipients was examined using Florida Bar membership status and histories. A panel of previous Legal Elite honorees from across the state representing different practice areas reviewed the list of finalists.

Mr. Stiers is the founding partner of Stiers Law (www.stierslaw.com) and is an AV-rated trial attorney with fourteen years of experience practicing personal injury litigation. A 1999 graduate of the University of Florida, Mr. Stiers received his Juris Doctor degree from University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2003. He has successfully represented numerous clients in both federal and state courts and has also argued appellate matters before the Third and Fourth District Courts of Appeals for the State of Florida. Mr. Stiers primarily represents persons injured due to the negligence of others, and regularly handles cases involving medical negligence, automobile negligence, premises liability, and negligence by cruise ship operators, and has won millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients.
The LCA is a trial lawyer honorary society composed of less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. Fellowship in the LCA is highly selective and by invitation only. Fellows are selected based upon excellence and accomplishment in litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels, and superior ethical reputation. The LCA is aggressively diverse in its composition. Established as a trial and appellate lawyer honorary society reflecting the American bar in the twenty-first century, the LCA represents the best in law among its membership. The number of Fellowships has been kept at an exclusive limit by design, allowing qualifications, diversity and inclusion to align effectively, with recognition of excellence in litigation across all segments of the bar. Fellows are generally at the partner or shareholder level, or are independent practitioners with recognized experience and accomplishment. In addition, the LCA is dedicated to promoting superior advocacy, professionalism and ethical standards among its Fellows.
Mr. Stiers is also an energetic and vocal advocate for better access to parks, green spaces, and the rights of cyclists and pedestrians in Miami-Dade County, where he serves as the Chair of the City of Miami Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and on the Citizens Transportation Trust, overseeing a $250 Million annual budget.
Stiers Law is pleased to announce that founding partner Eli Stiers has been selected as a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, one of the most prestigious associations of trial lawyers in the United States.
Membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum is restricted to those attorneys who have won multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for their clients. The organization has only 4,000 members nationally, and fewer than 1% of all U.S. lawyers nationally qualify for selection.
Throughout his career, Mr. Stiers has helped his clients obtain millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements in their personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases, consistently demonstrating a proven track record for success.
Let Stiers Law fight to get you the results you deserve for your important case.
You should know that the facts and circumstances of your case may differ from the matters in which results have been provided. The results provided are not necessarily representative of all results obtained by the lawyer/firm or of the experience of all clients with the lawyer/firm. Every case is different, and each client’s case must be evaluated and handled on its own merits.
Stiers Law, P.A. is pleased to announce that Eli Stiers has been appointed to the Citizens' Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) as a representative of the Miami-Dade County League of Cities.
The CITT is the independent board created to oversee spending of the half-penny transit surtax that Miami-Dade County voters approved in 2002 to finance transit improvements - better known as the People's Transportation Plan (PTP). The Office of the CITT currently receives approximately $250 million annually in surtax revenue to oversee for transit-related spending, and helps envision the future of Miami's transportation needs through its members' use of business or professional knowledge, skills, and experiences.
As Miamians know too well, the planned expansion of Metrorail never came to fruition, and the original PTP plans to add six new rail lines and over 88 miles to the Metrorail system never materialized. Meanwhile traffic in Miami-Dade has only gotten worse, with little in the way of relief.
Fortunately, a number of exciting transit solutions are on the horizon, and the CITT is playing an integral role in fulfilling the promise of the PTP. From purchasing a new fleet of state-of-the-art Hitachi Metrorail cars, complete with Wi-Fi and integrated bike racks at a cost of $376 million, to the recent completion of the Orange Line extension to Miami International Airport, the CITT is delivering results.
What truly excites Stiers, however, is the chance to work on expanding commuter rail service and connecting our community, finally realizing the vision of the original PTP. The newly proposed Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) plan aims to build out the original six lines envisioned by the PTP, in part by using these surtax monies as they were intended.
Moreover, the opportunities to participate and capitalize on the construction of several new "big idea" transit projects in Miami-Dade County - including All Aboard Florida, the Tri-Rail commuter expansion to downtown Miami, and the Baylink connection between Miami and Miami Beach - are happening right now.
"People are so desperate for transit solutions, these projects are going to be welcomed and I think they'll be wildly successful. Once they come online, it will be like the first dominoes to fall, and everyone is going to want to buy in." says Stiers.
An accomplished trial attorney and community advocate, Stiers looks forward to lending his voice to the CITT. "It's an exciting time to be a part of the CITT, as we are going to play a pivotal role in bringing lasting change to our community. The future is now in Miami, and I'm excited to lend my voice and experience to help define that future."
