Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Each year, Super Lawyers®, a Thomson Reuters publication, selects outstanding young lawyers for the Texas list of Rising Stars℠. Brian Rawson and Giovanna Tarantino Bingham, partners at Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP, have once again been selected for this annual list.
Brian Rawson has been selected as a Texas Rising Star for the second consecutive year. He joined HDBD in 2003 and was elected a partner in 2011. Brian has repeatedly and effectively defended catastrophic injury and death claims while acquiring expertise in a full spectrum of areas, from dram shop cases to complex products liability matters. Brian has represented multiple Fortune 500 companies at trial, including General Motors, Toyota, and Bridgestone Tire. He regularly appears in both state and federal courts in Texas. In the last two years, Brian has taken seven cases to trial for a variety of publically traded companies, and won defense verdicts in each of the four cases that reached a jury.
This year marks Giovanna Tarantino Bingham’s fourth consecutive year to be selected for the Texas Rising Stars list. Since joining the firm in 2003, she has represented a variety of clients in products liability, commercial litigation and deceptive trade practices. She joined the firm’s partnership in 2011. She continues to prove her skills in the courtroom, having won defense verdicts in her two most recent trials.
“It’s no surprise to me that Giovanna and Brian have been chosen again for the Texas Rising Stars list,” says Jeff Patterson, managing partner at HDBD. “They consistently work hard and represent our clients using a custom approach. This is a well-deserved honor for both of them.”
Thomson Reuters selects attorneys for the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists using a rigorous, multiphase rating process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated and assigned points based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Rising Stars are attorneys who are under age forty, or who have been practicing for less than ten years. Fewer than 3% of attorneys in Texas are chosen for the list each year.
