In developing the list of Texas’ top attorneys, researchers with Thomson Reuters conducted a statewide survey asking attorneys to nominate their peers for excellence in the practice of law. A blue-ribbon panel of lawyers then assisted with final selections. No more than 5 percent of Texas attorneys are named to the list each year.
The Texas Super Lawyers list is featured in the October 2018 issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers magazines, and is available at http://www.superlawyers.com.
