Fort Worth, Texas – Three Cantey Hanger attorneys have been recognized as “Texas Rising Stars” for 2017 by Texas Super Lawyers. The state list is in the March publication of Texas Monthly magazine.
The three, their law schools, and the practice areas for which they were recognized:
• David Speed, Texas A&M University School of Law (formerly Wesleyan University School of Law), construction litigation;
• Ryan L. Valdez, Tulane University Law School, business litigation;
• Philip A. Vickers, The University of Texas School of Law, business litigation.
Valdez was honored for the 10th consecutive year. Speed and Vickers are repeat honorees.
To be eligible for inclusion as a Rising Star, a candidate must be 40 years old or younger, or in practice 10 years or less. Fewer than 2.5 percent of those eligible are named to the Rising Stars list. An independent rating service specializing in legal services qualifies the candidates, who are judged in 12 areas of professional achievement.
