    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.
