"We have an exceptional group of attorneys in Houston and I am pleased that a number of them made the list."

To compile the list of the city's top lawyersH Texas solicited nominations from Houston area attorneys, as well as legal clients and the magazine's subscribers. Voters were asked to nominate attorneys whose work they know first-hand, including firm colleagues, co-counsel, lawyers they had observed in court, and opposing counsel. An outside firm tabulated the ballots and an executive panel finalized the list.

Search Tips:

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".

Searches are not case sensitive.
