Attorneys Deborah Hankinson and Jeffrey Levinger, co-founders of the Dallas appellate boutique Hankinson Levinger LLP are featured in D Magazine’s 2009 listing of the “Best Business Lawyers in Dallas.”
Both attorneys are recognized for their work in appellate law. This marks the fourth time Ms. Hankinson has been included in D Magazine’s prestigious listing, and the fifth consecutive honor for Mr. Levinger.
To compile the listing of the city’s leading attorneys for businesses, D Magazine editors asked Dallas lawyers to nominate their peers whose work they most admire. A blue-ribbon panel of lawyers then assisted the magazine’s editors in finalizing the list of the 226 top business attorneys in the city.
The 2009 “Best Business Lawyers in Dallas” list appears in the July issue of D Magazine, and is available at http://www.dmagazine.com/, throughout the year.
A former Justice on the Supreme Court of Texas, Ms. Hankinson is among the state’s leading appellate attorneys and strategists. The Dallas Business Journal recently recognized her as one of the city’s top business defense attorneys, and Texas Lawyer newspaper has featured her among the state’s top five appellate lawyers. She also has been highlighted among the state’s Top 100 attorneys in the annual Texas Super Lawyers listing.
Mr. Levinger provides clients with more than 25 years of appellate and trial law experience. The former head of the appellate practice group at Carrington Coleman Sloman and Blumenthal, L.L.P., Mr. Levinger currently serves as a Council Member of the Appellate Section of the State Bar of Texas and is the former Chair of the Dallas Bar Association Appellate Law Section. He has been recognized among Texas’ top lawyers each year since the Texas Super Lawyers list was first published in 2003, where he also repeatedly has been named to lists of the Top 100 attorneys in both the Dallas-Fort Worth area and throughout the state of Texas.
