CORAL GABLES, Fla. (June 11, 2013) —- Oscar R. Rivera, a shareholder with the Coral Gables-based law firm of Siegfried, Rivera, Hyman, Lerner, De La Torre, Mars & Sobel, has been named for inclusion in the Florida Trend magazine 2013 Legal Elite listing of the top attorneys in the state as selected by their colleagues.
All in-state members of The Florida Bar are invited to participate in the balloting for this listing for attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. Each lawyer is given a score based on the number of votes they receive, with more weight given to votes coming from attorneys outside of their respective firms. The list of top vote-getters is then further examined using membership status and disciplinary histories provided by The Florida Bar, and a panel of previous Legal Elite winners reviews the selection process and the list of finalists. The resulting list represents approximately two percent of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
Oscar R. Rivera specializes in real property and corporate law, and he heads the Real Estate/Corporate Practice Group at Siegfried, Rivera, Hyman, Lerner, De La Torre, Mars & Sobel. He completed his undergraduate studies in accounting at the University of Miami and received his Juris Doctor from Georgetown University. Rivera maintains an “AV” rating from Martindale-Hubbell and is admitted to The Florida Bar (U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida) and U.S. Tax Court. He is a member of the Cuban-American Bar Association, the Hispanic National Bar Association and the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana.
