The Texas Rising Stars listing recognizes the top young lawyers in the state who are age 40 or younger or who have been practicing law for no more than 10 years. Lawyers on this list, which is published annually by Thomson Reuters’ legal division, are nominated by Texas attorneys and then selected following an extensive review process. Less than 2.5 percent of all Texas lawyers earn the Texas Rising Star distinction.
Kelly Hart attorneys who received 2020 Rising Stars recognition include the following: Heidi Angel (Estate Planning and Probate); Caleb Bulls (Business Litigation); Elizabeth A. Cuneo (Business Litigation); Joe R. Greenhill (Appellate); Brandon M. Hill (Banking); Hannah P. Parks (Employment & Labor); Nirav N. Patel (Energy & Natural Resources); Kylie M.

Schuit (Business Litigation); Joakim Soederbaum (Business Litigation); Taylor Spalla (Energy & Resources); and Daniel A. Vela (Securities & Corp.).
