Jackson Walker Congratulates Its 19 “Rising Stars”

Dallas, TX, March 14, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Nineteen Jackson Walker attorneys were selected as 2012 “Rising Stars” by Thomson Reuters. The award is based on a two-part system that determines the top 2.5 percent of the state’s up-and-coming lawyers. Lawyers are surveyed and asked to nominate the best attorneys that they have personally observed in action. When the results are in, Thomson Reuters conducts independent research of the nominees’ credentials. To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location. “Rising Stars” are attorneys who are either 40 years old and under or who have been practicing law for ten or fewer years.

The list will be published in the April 2012 issue of Texas Monthly.

Congratulations to the following 2012 JW “Rising Stars”:
