Two Smith Law Group attorneys have been selected to Thomson Reuters’ 2017 Texas Super Lawyers list in the area of appellate law. The list will be published in the October 2017 issue of Texas Monthly.
One honoree is D. Todd Smith, the firm’s founder and managing partner, who practices from its principal office in Austin. The other is the firm’s newest partner, Jeff Nobles, who arrived in July 2017 to open its Houston office. Both Smith and Nobles are highly experienced appellate counsel and are certified as specialists in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
“I am honored to be included on the list for the fifth straight year,” Smith said. “But that’s nothing compared to Jeff, who has been named fifteen straight times. His sustained recognition confirms what a great addition he is to our practice.”
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The list is compiled annually by following a patented multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Fewer than five percent of all Texas lawyers are named to the list each year.
