THE LAW The Best Lawyers IN DALLAS & FORT WORTH

By D Magazine |

THE JOKE GOES LIKE THIS: WHAT DO YOU call someone who graduated last in his class at law school? Answer: an attorney. There are 11,800 lawyers in Dallas County and 3,000 in Tarrant County-and their numbers grow daily. Finding an attorney regarded as not just capable but excellent, especially in specialized fields, can be daunting. Where to start?

In an effort to make this task easier, aufiiors Steve Naifeh and Greg Smith have put together a book called The Best Lawyers in America, released in its seventh edition this month by Woodward/White, Inc. The two lawyers and their staff interviewed hundreds of Dallas-area lawyers by phone, asking them to confidentially rate other attorneys in their own areas of expertise. Attorneys were not permitted to vote on lawyers in their own firms. And no one can “buy” an identification as one of the best.

The superlative lawyers are identified in 15 areas of expertise; 257 local attorneys made the list. Dallas and Fort Worth attorneys have a big presence in the areas of business litigation, labor and employment law, personal injury litigation, real estate law and tax law. It’s no surprise that not one from the area made the grade in maritime law; there’s not much call for that in a city 300 miles from the nearest coastline. Only two made the list in public utility law. And we have only one attorney on the list for entertainment law- a sports agent, of course.
