Texas Monthly magazine has released its list of Texas Super Lawyers for 2012. On the list, 13 come from the law firm of Cantey Hanger and seven come from the law firm of Decker, Jones, McMackin, McClane, Hall & Bates. The lawyers are chosen based on a nomination process, a review of their resumes and their peers.
“Attorneys are selected after a statewide nomination process, review of resumes and peer evaluation by practice area, and independent research,” according to publisher William C. White. White said that five percent of the attorneys in the state make the list and “advertising (in our publications) has no bearing on the selection process.”
The lawyers from the law firm of Cantey Hanger that made the list include the following: Bruce Akerly, Bankruptcy; Ralph Duggins, Business Litigation; Allan Howeth, Estate Planning/Probate; Noel Ice, Estate Planning/Probate; S.G. (John) Johndroe, Business Litigation; Jeff Kinsel, Civil Litigation Defense; Steve Madsen, General Litigation; Lu Pham, Employment and Labor; Jordan Parker, Personal Injury Defense: Medical Malpractice; Pollard Rogers, Real Estate; Stephen L. Tatum, Appellate Law; David Tracy, Estate Planning/Probate and Carol Traylor, Professional Liability/Defense.
“Recognition of this sort, especially from peers, is gratifying,” Tatum said. Tatum is the managing partner for the law firm. “These honors further illustrate the firm’s commitment to excellence in providing legal services.”
The lawyers from the law firm of Decker, Jones, McMackin, McClane, Hall & Bates on the list include the following: Daniel L. Bates, Civil Litigation; Mark S. Dugan, Business Litigation; Randy J. Hall, Personal Injury Defense & Medical Malpractice; Geoff Mantooth, Intellectual Property; Charles B. Milliken, Mergers & Acquisitions; Gary M. Moates, Real Estate and Brian K. Yost, Intellectual Property.
