Super Lawyers is owned by Thomson Reuters and uses a patented selection process for its annual guide to top lawyers. Attorneys must be nominated by their peers. A research team then reviews their professional achievements, background, and other details, with a blue-ribbon panel making the final selection. No more than 5 percent of attorneys in a state are included in the listing.
The complete list of Texas lawyers selected for 2018 will be published in the Texas edition of Super Lawyers magazine and in Texas Monthly in October.
Rusty Hardin & Associates, LLP has built a solid reputation for taking on the causes of its clients and obtaining favorable results in both civil matters and significant criminal cases.
