Rusty Hardin Named a Texas Legal Legend

Rusty Hardin has been named a Texas Legal Legend by the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas. This honor is reserved for those attorneys who, after decades of practice, have shown a commitment not only for their profession, but also for giving back to their local communities.

Mr. Hardin began his career more than 45 years ago, serving as a high-level prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney's office. He entered private practice in 1991, and since then has tried over 100 jury trials in areas ranging from Commercial Litigation to Criminal Defense. He’s previously held several leadership positions on committees for the State Bar of Texas as well as on the faculty of numerous public and professional organizations and is frequently invited to speak to national and regional bar associations and business groups.

In receiving this honor, Mr. Hardin joins a long list of distinguished attorneys, including James “Jim” Coleman, Joe Jamail, Carolyn Wright-Sanders, and Lloyd P. Lockridge.
