Six Thompson Coe Attorneys Named 2009 Rising Stars

May 1, 2009

Thompson Coe is pleased to announce that six attorneys from the Dallas office have been named Rising Stars for 2009.

The Rising Stars list is produced annually by Laws & Politics Media including both private practice attorneys and attorneys in non-private practice areas such as prosecutors, in-house counsel, judges and public service lawyers.  No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the list.  Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.

The pool of candidates is evaluated by the Law & Politics Research Department and one of 70 Blue Ribbon Panel, made up of peers from the same practice area as each candidate. 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.

Congratulations to our 2009 Rising Stars:
  • Roshanak Khosravighasemabadi
  • Elaine T. Lenahan
  • Alan J. Rosenberg
  • Rhonda J. Thompson
  • Ellen L. Van Meir
  • George N. Wilson III (Trey)
