While thumbing through the June 1985 issue of Town & Country magazine, we were surprised to find a listing of
“The Best Lawyers in the USA.”

In it. Town & Country listed not only the country’s largest law firms, but the best general trial lawyers, tax
lawyers, estate and trust planners and criminal lawyers. The Dallas/Fort Worth legal community weighed in by placing a
number of top attorneys and legal firms on the list.

Under “The Biggest Law Firms” category were Dallas’ Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld and Johnson & Swanson.

Richard Freling of Johnson & Swanson, Robert A. Watson of Fort Worth’s Watson, Ice, McGee, Morgan,
Hughes and Liles and Edward B. Winn of Dallas’ Winn, Beaudry & Vir-den were named three of the “Best Tax
Lawyers.” And William E. Collins of Dallas’ Thompson and Knight was named one of “The Best Estates, Trusts and
Tax Planning Lawyers.”


Keep me up to date on the latest happenings and all that D Magazine has to offer.
