DALLAS – For the seventh consecutive year, Dallas attorney and mediator Deborah Hankinson has been recognized for her work in appellate law in Chambers USA, the respected guide to the nation’s top lawyers and law firms.
The 2013 edition of Chambers USA describes the former Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas and the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Dallas as “a tenacious attorney” who is “respected for her advocacy skills and writing style.”
“Chambers USA is one of the most respected legal guides in the country, and earning recognition is always an honor,” says Ms. Hankinson, founder of Hankinson LLP. “The publication’s editors look at the entire firm, not just an individual. So this honor is a reflection of the great work done by our entire team.”
With more than 20 years of experience and 140 full-time researchers, Chambers USA publisher Chambers and Partners is respected worldwide for its thorough guides to the legal profession. Chambers bases its rankings on thousands of phone interviews with attorneys and clients who identify those lawyers and law firms that demonstrate the top technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by clients.
The Chambers USA honor is just the latest professional recognition for Ms. Hankinson, who recently was selected for the eighth time among “The Best Lawyers in Dallas” by D Magazine and was honored for the sixth time by Texas’ Best Lawyers magazine for her work in appellate law and arbitration and mediation proceedings. She also has been recognized in Texas’ Top Rated Lawyers, after earning the highest peer ratings possible from Martindale-Hubbell, the top lawyer-rating service in the nation and publisher of Texas’ Top Rated Lawyers.
