“Texas Rising Stars” are the top up-and coming lawyers in Texas who are under the age of 40 or have been in practice 10 years or less. Selections are made by Law & Politics, a division of Key Professional Media, Inc. Each year, Law & Politics undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidate by an attorney-led research staff and a peer review of candidates by practice area and a good-standing and disciplinary check. The “Rising Stars” list appears in the April 2010 issue of Texas Monthly and the Texas Super Lawyers – Rising Stars special edition.
