Deborah Hankinson Recognized for Alternative Dispute Resolution and Appellate Practice

Deborah Hankinson’s prominence in the field of alternative dispute resolution continues to grow.  She recently received the highest peer review rating of AV® Preeminent Status in Alternative Dispute Resolution with Martindale-Hubbell™  through a rigorous survey of her peers.  Deborah, who previously served as a Justice on the Supreme Court of Texas, also has been invited to join the AAA (American Arbitration Association) Judicial Settlement Conference Service panel, a new service that affords parties the opportunity to bring disputes to a private settlement conference with one of AAA’s specially selected former judges.  The process is non-binding and voluntary and involves significant evaluation by the former judge, who acts as a neutral.

In 2012, Deborah again was recognized by Best Lawyers, which also honored her as its Dallas Lawyer of the Year.  Chambers USA also recognized Deborah again this year, the sixth year in a row that she has received the honor. Additionally, Deborah’s standing in Texas is reflected in several recent accolades. She appears in the 2012 edition of Texas’ Top Rated Lawyers, which is published by Martindale-Hubbell and America Lawyer Media.  Deborah also earned a place on D Magazine‘s 2012 listing of “The Best Lawyers in Dallas.”  This is the seventh time that D Magazine has named her to its “Best Lawyers” list.
