Texas Lawyer Features Winning Women Honoree Rachel Steely


Texas Lawyer showcased Gardere Partner Rachel Powitzky Steely on its 2014 list of "Winning Women," which recognizes the state's top female trial and appellate lawyers who have a track record of success in high-stakes cases with national or statewide impact. In its feature, Texas Lawyer compared Ms. Steely's legal practice to the role of a firefighter, stating that her client's employment law emergencies are handled "right then."

"I like her because she's very client-centric," said Gardere Partner Geoffrey H. Bracken, co-chair of the Firm's litigation department. "She kind of does it all."

Ed Jacob, president and chief operating officer of Houston's Independence Contract Drilling, has brought Ms. Steely along as outside counsel for the last three drilling companies he's headed. "Her track record proves it for me," Mr. Jacob said. "That's why with every company I've been to, I've brought Rachel with me."

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.
