Each year in April, Texas Monthly magazine releases its annual Super Lawyers Rising Stars Edition, which compiles listings across Texas of the top young lawyers in the State. Ford+Bergner is pleased to have two of its attorneys – including Managing Partner Don D. Ford III – listed in the magazine as rising stars in the areas of estate and trust litigation.
According to the magazine, the process to be included as a Rising Star is a 3-step process. The editorial board of the magazine first creates a candidate pool. Once they have identified the pool, their research department evaluates each candidates, followed by a review of the candidates by their peers within their primary area of practice. The evaluation of the candidates is based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement that Texas Monthly believes identify outstanding lawyers in each practice area.
Inclusion in the Rising Stars list reflects the overall goal of Ford+Bergner LLP. It is the firm’s desire that each of its lawyers stand out in the community as well-rounded professionals recognized for their professionalism and the quality of their work. Ford+Bergner congratulates Mr. Ford on this remarkable distinction.
