DALLAS/HOUSTON – LAWFUEL – Law News, Law Jobs Network – Marshall Doke Jr. and William Matthews of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP have been recognized among Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Lawyers in America. Mr. Doke practices in the firm’s Dallas office, while Mr. Matthews is in the Houston office.
Lawdragon is a quarterly publication and Web site focused on the legal industry. It publishes guides to the country’s top lawyers and judges, and provides an online rating guide for attorneys. The 500 Leading Lawyers in America includes those individuals who have had the greatest recent impact on the legal world. Profiles of Mr. Doke and Mr. Matthews are included in the magazine’s Fall 2006 issue and online at www.lawdragon.com.
“Working alongside Marshall and Bill, we as a firm certainly place both of these attorneys among the very finest in the country in their fields,” says Gardere Managing Partner Steve Good. Mr. Doke is a government contracts partner at the firm. Mr. Matthews is a business litigation partner. “This recognition shows that their peers agree.”
To compile the 500 Leading Lawyers list, the publication conducted online balloting and independent research involving interviews with lawyers nationwide, narrowing the list to the Lawdragon 3000. Those selected from that list as part of the 500 Leading Lawyers represent less than one-half of one percent of the legal profession, placing them among the most elite group of legal professionals.
In addition to the honors earned by Mr. Doke and Mr. Matthews, Gardere had 10 attorneys named to the Lawdragon 3000. They include, from the Dallas office: Mark Bayer, Curtis Frisbie Jr., Kenneth Glaser, Kevin Kelley, Cym Lowell, Richard Roberson, Deirdre Ruckman, Larry Schoenbrun and Peter Vogel; and from the Houston office: Allen Craig III, John Pearson and Frank Putnam.
