Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, honors lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area, according to Super Lawyers. Only 5% of attorneys in Texas receive this distinction.
