(MIAMI, Florida, August 27, 2020) In its 2021 edition, FIU College of Law Professors, trial lawyers H. Scott Fingerhut and H.T. Smith, are recognized once again among The Best Lawyers in America.

Best Lawyers, which highlights the top 5% of practicing attorneys in the United States, is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.  For more than three decades, in almost 70 countries, Best Lawyers has earned the respect of the bar, media, and public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.

“The importance of this recognition to H.T. and me,” says Professor Fingerhut, “is the message it sends to our students — that there has never been a more important time to be a great lawyer in America.  And that with passion, principle, and a consistent commitment to excellence, all positive, substantial change so vital to our world is possible.”

Professor Smith is the Founding Director of the Trial Advocacy Program and teaches Advanced Trial Advocacy and Trial Advocacy.  Professor Fingerhut serves as Assistant Director of the program.  He teaches Trial Advocacy, Pretrial Practice, and Criminal Procedure.  The two professors also lead the FIU Law Trial Team.
