DALLAS/HOUSTON – LAWFUEL – Texas Law – Eleven attorneys from Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP have been selected to the 2007 listing of Texas Rising Stars.
Earning Rising Stars honors are partners Alan Buckner of Houston and Barry Golden, Matthew Schroeder, John Slates and Celeste Winford of Dallas; and associates Peter Scaff of Houston and Christopher Converse, Michael Cooley, Marcus Helt, Michele Spillman and Paula Tucker of Dallas.
“We have always had the opinion that we have some of the brightest young lawyers in Texas,” says Gardere Managing Partner Steve Good. “When your peers validate that opinion, it is something everyone at the firm can take pride in.”
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. Rising Stars are selected based on nominations by members of the elite Texas Super Lawyers list. Only 2.5 percent of Texas attorneys were chosen for this honor.
The Rising Stars list appears in both the April 2007 issue of Texas Monthly and in Texas Rising Stars 2007 from the publishers of Law & Politics Media Inc.
