Twenty-six Kelly Hart attorneys were selected for inclusion in the 2013 Texas Rising Stars. The list appears in the April 2013 issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines.
Each year, researchers with Thomson Reuters' legal division solicit nominations from attorneys across Texas, asking them to identify the best practicing attorneys age 40 or younger, and those who have been practicing for 10 or fewer years. In all, less than 2.5 percent of all Texas lawyers earn the Texas Rising Stars distinction. The 2013 Rising Stars at Kelly Hart include: Michael D. Anderson, Chad J. Arnette, Benton S. Cantey, David W. Cook, Kimberly K. Donovan, Sharon Fulgham, Christopher S. Greer, Jared P. Harrell, Thomas R. Hegi, Monica M. Jacobs, Stephanie E. Kaiser, Chad A. Key, Cheryl P. Leb, Evan M. Malloy, Derek L. Montgomery, Preston R. Mundt, Jason C. Nash, Jody S. Sanders, Dana M. Stayton, Matthew D. Stayton, Kenneth W. Stogdill, Clay M. Taylor, Adrienne N. Wall, Jeff E. Whitfield, Scott R. Wiehle, and John T. Wilson IV.
