Super Lawyers has recognized Preston Dugas, associate attorney at Parker McDonald, as a 2012 “Texas Rising Star”. Super Lawyers is a rating service of lawyers who have attained a high-degree of professional achievement and recognition. In order to become a “Rising Star” one must complete a selection process that is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
Dugas’ practice areas consist of plaintiff’s serious injury and wrongful death, dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices, property tax litigation and commercial litigation. Dugas is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Tarrant County Trial Lawyers Association, Tarrant County Bar Association, Tarrant County Young Lawyers Association, and Eldon B. Mahon Inn of Court.
Dugas was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. He graduated from Texas Christian University and later received his Juris Doctorate Degree from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio.
Lawyers in Texas were asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. In addition to the general survey, the Super Lawyers attorney-led research team reviewed the credentials of potential candidates and assigned points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. Point totals from the general survey and research process were added to arrive at a final tally. Lawyers ranked by point totals and those with the highest point totals are named to the Rising Stars list. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the list.
