DALLAS/HOUSTON – LAWFUEL – Legal News Network – A total of 48 partners from the Dallas and Houston offices of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP have been selected as 2006 Texas Super Lawyers.
Gardere has placed more than 45 attorneys on the list in each of the four years the list has been compiled by the publishers of Texas Monthly and Law & Politics Media Inc. With their selection to the 2006 list, 32 of the firm’s attorneys are four-time honorees. Three – Jim Cooper, Doug Eyberg and Craig Florence – are first-time selections.
“We have always felt that our attorneys are unquestionably among the best in the state, and to have that validated by our peers is something we take pride in,” Gardere Managing Partner Stephen D. Good said. “Our first priority is providing our clients with the best representation possible, while at the same time treating our peers ethically and with respect.”
Texas Super Lawyer selections are based upon peer nominations made by more than 70,000 attorneys from across the state, with the final selections made by a panel of lawyers chosen by the Texas Super Lawyers editors. Fewer than 5 percent of the attorneys nominated were chosen for this honor. Texas Super Lawyers appears in the October 2006 issue of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers, a publication co-produced by the publishers of Texas Monthly and Law & Politics Media, Inc.
Earlier this year, 15 Gardere attorneys were chosen as Texas Rising Stars, a companion to the Super Lawyers list. Rising Stars recognition selections are based on nominations by members of the Texas Super Lawyers list. Rising Stars are the top up-and-coming Texas attorneys who are 40 or younger or have been in practice for fewer than 10 years.
