Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) has announced that Drew Gibbs received Board Certification in Personal Injury Trial Law. Gibbs currently practices in Austin, Texas and is a proud Partner with The Carlson Law Firm.

"It's a great honor to have been recommended for board certification by the judges and opposing counsel with whom I have tried jury trials with over the years," said Gibbs, "The rigorous examination process and many hurdles that had to be overcome to receive this recognition were a challenge, but the successes we have achieved for our clients along the way have made all the time and effort well worth it."
