Brian S. Rawson and Giovanna Tarantino Bingham of Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP were both selected for the Texas Super Lawyers® list of Rising Stars℠ in 2012, published by Thompson Reuters.

Super Lawyers®, a Thompson Reuters publication, each year selects outstanding young lawyers for the Texas list of Rising Stars℠. The list for 2012 includes two lawyers from Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP (HDBD) – Brian Rawson and Giovanna Tarantino Bingham.

Brian Rawson joined HDBD in 2003, and focuses on personal injury defense litigation, as well as product liability litigation in cases involving catastrophic injuries and death. He has acquired extensive trial experience, including first-chair experience. Last year, Brian tried three cases to jury verdict and received a complete defense verdict in all three.

Giovanna Tarantino Bingham also joined HDBD in 2003 as a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Baylor University Law School. She represents the firm’s clients in a variety of areas including product liability, commercial litigation and deceptive trade practices. Giovanna has proved her skills in the courtroom, and successfully tried two cases to jury verdict last year. A prolific writer, Giovanna co-authored the Texas state section in Business Tort Law Desk Reference: Fifty State Compendium (2007 – 2011) and Texas Tort Law Desk Reference: Fifty State Compendium (2004-2011). This is her third consecutive year to be selected for the Rising Stars list in Texas Super Lawyers magazine.

“We are delighted with the selection of Brian and Giovanna as Rising Stars for 2012,” says David Estes, HDBD partner. “The firm promoted Brian and Giovanna to partner last year because they have consistently represented our clients with the professionalism and tenacity it takes to win in court. Being selected for the Rising Stars list is a well-deserved honor for these two.”
