The Texas Rising Stars represent the top 2.5-percent of Texas attorneys who are 40 years old or younger or those attorneys who have been practicing for 10 years or less. The selection process involves a nominating survey sent to all attorneys named to the Texas Super Lawyers® 2014 and a review of each nominee by an attorney-led research team. Nominees are ranked based on the number and type of votes received with higher scores given to nominees from other law firms compared to internally generated nominations. These rankings are tallied and segregated based on firm size for the final selection.
