Jackson Walker Congratulates Its 36 “Super Lawyers – Rising Stars”

March 4, 2016 | Attorney News



Thirty-six Jackson Walker attorneys were selected to the “Texas Super Lawyers – Rising Stars” list by Thomson Reuters.

Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected to receive this honor. The annual selections are made using a multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

The list will be published in the April 2016 issue of Texas Monthly.

Congratulations to the following JW “Rising Stars”:
