Eighteen Thompson Coe Attorneys Honored as Texas Rising Stars

March 4, 2016

Thompson Coe is delighted to announce that 18 attorneys from the Austin, Dallas, and Houston offices have been named as Texas Rising Stars for 2016. This is a 50% increase from 2015. After a rigorous nomination and review process, conducted by Law & Politics magazine, no more than 2.5% of all lawyers in the state are named as Rising Stars.

Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation. The following indicators are used to evaluate candidates: verdicts and settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors and awards, special licenses and certifications, position within law firm, bar or other professional activities, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background, and other outstanding achievements.

The full list of Rising Stars is published in the April 2016 issue of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers - Rising Stars Edition, published by Law & Politics Media Inc.
