HOUSTON — For the sixth consecutive year, Houston-based Rusty Hardin & Associates is being recognized on the list of Best Law Firms by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.
The firm earned top rankings in the Houston metro area for its commercial litigation, appellate, and criminal defense work. The firm’s expertise with plaintiffs’ personal injury litigation also generated additional honors. The firm’s appellate practice is ranked nationally for 2022 and marks the fourth year that the appellate group has been recognized.
“To be named among the best, you have to work with the best,” said partner and founder Rusty Hardin. “Having the firm be recognized as a Best Law Firm speaks greatly to the incredible level of talent we have at the firm, and I consider it a great privilege to work alongside each and every one of our lawyers.”
The U.S. News – Best Lawyers selections are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in the same practice areas, and review of additional information provided by law firms. Factors evaluated by clients include expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, and competitiveness.
To be selected to the Best Law Firms list, a firm must also have at least one lawyer included in the most recent edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the nation’s oldest peer-review legal guide.
Earlier this year, Best Lawyers in America selected Mr. Hardin, partners Lara Hollingsworth, Terry D. Kernell, Joe Roden, and senior attorney Marcie McFarland to the 2022 listing of the nation’s top attorneys. Of counsel Cathy Cochran was also selected prior to her passing earlier this year. Associates Naomi Howard and Emily Smith earned honors on Best Lawyers’ “Ones to Watch” list of up-and-coming young lawyers.
