    We make every effort to keep these databases accurately updated, but please read the terms and conditions under which the information is provided by bestlawyers.com. The fact that a lawyer has been voted by his or her peers into Best Lawyers in a legal practice area does not signify that the lawyer has been certified by a state board of legal specialization in that practice area or specialty. A listing in Best Lawyers does not guarantee a desired legal result.

    The Texas Board of Legal Specialization has a board certification process that determines whether a lawyer may hold himself or herself out as a specialist in a field of law. The lawyers listed in Best Lawyers are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers and have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. Clients are urged to check a lawyer's firm web page to determine whether he or she is board certified in a specialty or subspecialty.

    Client Comments

    "Hector De Leon is a valuable business asset to my company and me. He is the type of lawyer who can explain things in terms a layperson can readily understand. His approach is practical, effective, and always timely. His knowledge of insurance law is particularly keen and his ethics above reproach. We have been a client for a dozen years."

    "Hector has represented our firms and my personal legal affairs since the early 1980's. He is honest, doesn't try to keep a case going for money, gives you all the options, and lets you make the decisions. I know very few lawyers like Hector DeLeon. He doesn't keep the meter running for every little second or minute that you are on the phone with him. I have become a personal friend of Hector because of his integrity. This speaks highly for a lawyer. "
