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.
“I love what I do, and I’m flattered to be included once again,” said Smith, who was selected for the fourth consecutive year. “It is truly an honor.”
In addition to handling appeals and original proceedings in appellate courts, Smith advises other lawyers on legal and strategic issues at all litigation stages. By getting involved early, Smith helps shape a case as it develops and often becomes a valued member of the trial team. He is certified as a specialist in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
