A leading media outlet in North Texas, D Magazine determines its annual Best Lawyers in Dallas list based on an extensive peer review process in which local lawyers 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?” These nominees are then evaluated and voted on by an anonymous panel of attorneys and the magazine’s editorial staff. The resulting list represents a collection of highly regarded, local attorneys and is published in D Magazine’s May 2020 issue.
