Super Lawyers has awarded five KRCL attorneys with its top recognition for young attorneys this year. From the Houston office, Demetri Economou has been named to the 2021 Texas Rising Stars list. In the KRCL Dallas office, the honorees include Michael Attaway, Jaime DeWees, John Kane and Scott Riddle. These attorneys demonstrate the wide-ranging legal services Kane Russell Coleman Logan provides, including corporate, civil litigation, business litigation, bankruptcy and employment law.
