The study looked at 20 law firms, for a total of 799 equity partners. Of those 799 equity partners, only 48 of them are minorities. This is good for six percent. The African-American, Hispanic and Asian bar associations of Dallas released data that shows only one percent of the 799 equity partners at the largest firms in Dallas are African-American.

“All of us are working to make the profession more inclusive,” Fowler said. “It’s frustrating. Getting that number up is something we’re all dealing with, because it should be up for all law firms.”



The five largest firms in North Texas ranked as follows by the DBJ survey:

– Haynes and Boone LLP with 36 percent women and 18 percent minority

– Thompson & Knight LLP with 16 percent women and 9 percent minority

Locke Lord LLP with 25 percent women and 13 percent minority

– Jackson Walker LLP with 26 percent women and 12 percent minority

– Winstead PC with 30 percent women and 11 percent minority
