DALLAS (LAWFUEL) – Once again, a group of attorneys from the Dallas, Austin and Marshall, Texas, offices of McKool Smith have been recognized on the prestigious Texas Super Lawyers listing of the state’s top attorneys.
A total of 11 firm attorneys were selected for this year’s list, including four who received special recognition. Firm principals Samuel F. Baxter, Mike McKool and Theodore Stevenson III earned spots among the Top 100 lawyers in Texas, and firm principal Steven J. Pollinger is listed as one of the Top 50 attorneys practicing in Central Texas.
The following McKool Smith principals appear on the 2008 Super Lawyers list:
· Samuel F. Baxter, Dallas/Marshall

· Thomas A. Graves, Dallas
· Lewis T. LeClair, Dallas

The Texas Super Lawyers list appears in the October 2008 issue of Texas Monthly magazine and Texas Super Lawyers magazine, which is published by Law & Politics Media Inc. in conjunction with Texas Monthly.
“We practice law to win cases, not awards, but there always is a sense of pride when you are recognized for your work,” says Mr. McKool, co-founder of the firm. “We feel this honor speaks to the great work this firm as a whole does on behalf of our clients.”
Super Lawyers selections were based on nominations from more than 70,000 attorneys across Texas. Nominees then were screened by a blue-ribbon panel before final selections were made. Fewer than 5 percent of all Texas lawyers earn the Super Lawyers distinction.
McKool Smith has more than 95 attorneys in Dallas, Austin, Marshall, New York and Washington, D.C., handling commercial and intellectual property litigation for national and international clients. The firm is recognized as one of the premier litigation law firms in the United States, having earned significant courtroom victories for clients such as American Airlines, BearingPoint, Ericsson, Electronic Data Systems, Lockheed Martin, Medtronic Inc., and Sony Ericsson.
