With seven shareholders named among Florida's Super Lawyers in the 2009 edition of Super Lawyers Magazine, the firm ranked first in the State of Florida in the number of bankruptcy lawyers so honored. In addition, four other Stichter Riedel lawyers were honored as ''Rising Stars'' (out of only fifteen bankruptcy lawyers in the entire state so recognized), giving the firm eleven lawyers recognized as either Super Lawyers or Rising Stars. No other Florida firm had more than six bankruptcy lawyers in these two categories. In addition, for the second consecutive year, the firm had three lawyers (Don M. Stichter, Harley Riedel, and Russ Blain) rated among the Top 100 lawyers (out of approximately 61,000) in the entire State of Florida, regardless of practice area. According to the national Corporate Counsel edition of Super Lawyers magazine, only one other law firm in the nation had as many as three bankruptcy lawyers included in the Top 100 lawyers in any single state. For the second consecutive year, Harley Riedel was named as one of the Top Ten lawyers in Florida. According to the national Corporate Counsel addition, only a handful of firms had as many as seven lawyers named as Super Lawyers in the bankruptcy practice area in any single state.
