To compile the “Best Lawyers in Dallas” list, D Magazine asks local lawyers to nominate their peers with the following question in mind: “Which Dallas lawyers, of those whose work you have witnessed firsthand, would you rank among the current best?”  Nominees are then evaluated by an anonymous panel of respected attorneys and the publication’s editorial staff, who then determine the final list.  The resulting list represents a collection of highly regarded, local attorneys across more than 35 practice areas.
