Austin associate Leslie Ritchie Robnett is featured on the cover of the Texas Rising Stars edition of Super Lawyers with a profile that explores her legal legacy going back six generations. Her great-great-great grandfather, John Preston White, was a charter judge of the Texas Court of Appeals in 1876 who later became chief judge. The story also details how Ms. Robnett was the first woman in her family to go to law school, and includes a story about being the only woman at Gardere's biennial pheasant hunt. Ms. Robnett said her father advised her to remember to "keep [her] gun barrel up and not shoot any clients."
Texas Rising Stars honorees are selected based on nominations by members of the elite Texas Super Lawyers list and represent the top up-and-coming Texas attorneys age 40 or younger and those who have been in practice for less than 10 years. Overall, less than 2.5 percent of Texas attorneys were chosen for this honor. The complete Texas Rising Stars list appears on Super Lawyers and will be included in the April 2013 issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines.
The publications contained in this site do not constitute legal advice. Legal advice can only be given with knowledge of the client's specific facts. By putting these publications on our website we do not intend to create a lawyer-client relationship with the user. Materials may not reflect the most current legal developments, verdicts or settlements. This information should in no way be taken as an indication of future results.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
