DALLAS (LAWFUEL) – Marcos Ronquillo, Managing Partner of the Texas-based law firm of Godwin Pappas & Ronquillo PC, has been named one of Dallas’ top business defense attorneys by the Dallas Business Journal.
Mr. Ronquillo is one of just 15 attorneys selected by the newspaper for a special section titled “The Defenders,” which appears in the June 13 edition. “The Defenders” honors the attorneys that companies turn to when facing high-stakes commercial litigation. The selections for this year’s list were based on interviews conducted by the publication’s editors with general counsels, judges and attorneys.
This is the second time in three years that an attorney from Godwin Pappas & Ronquillo has been selected to “The Defenders” list. Firm Chairman and CEO Donald Godwin was among those honored on the inaugural list in 2006.
“From a professional standpoint, it is an honor to be considered among the top defense attorneys in Dallas,” says Mr. Ronquillo, President and Managing Partner of Godwin Pappas & Ronquillo. “But more importantly, I think that having two partners selected for this list in three years says a lot about the quality of representation our firm provides for our clients.”
Mr. Ronquillo, who recently was appointed chairman of the City of Dallas’ 16-member Judicial Nominating Commission, is a former President of the Dallas Mexican American Bar Association and Chairman of the Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Last month, he was honored as a recipient of the 2008 Legal Diversity Award presented by the Texas Diversity Council.
He is a past recipient of the national Spirit of Excellence Award presented by the American Bar Association’s National Commission on Minority Lawyers. Mr. Ronquillo also is a past recipient of the State Bar of Texas President’s Special Citation Award, as well as the Outstanding Lawyer of the Year Award from the Texas Mexican American Bar Association.
