Nearly two-thirds of the family law attorneys from Texas-based law firm KoonsFuller have been recognized by their peers for their skillful representation of clients. Most recently, twelve attorneys were named to the prestigious Texas Super Lawyers list for 2018 by Thomson Reuters and 10 attorneys were named 2018 Texas Rising Stars by Thomson Reuters. In August, twenty of the firm’s attorneys were recognized in the 2019 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.

“The fact that more than sixty percent of our attorneys are recognized by the two leading legal ranking services shows just how deep the bench is at KoonsFuller,” said Ike Vanden Eykel. “Day in and day out, each of these attorneys goes to great lengths to help their clients through tough transitional times in their lives. It’s gratifying to have their hard work and commitment recognized by their peers.”

SUPER LAWYERS

Published annually by Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers is a credible, comprehensive listing of highly regarded attorneys. According to the organization, the rating service selects “outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” These outstanding lawyers are selected using a patented multiphase that begins with a statewide peer nomination process. Nominees are then evaluated on twelve indicators of professional achievement and recognition. Ultimately, less than five percent of attorneys in Texas are selected for inclusion on the final list.

12 KoonsFuller attorneys have been recognized on the 2018 Super Lawyers list:

  • Sean Abeyta

  • Julie Crawford

BEST LAWYERS

Best Lawyers is considered one of the oldest and most respected attorney ranking services in the world. First published in 1983, the guide identifies the attorneys best qualified to represent those in need of legal services in distant jurisdictions or unfamiliar specialties. This year, 7.8 million votes were analyzed. These votes were then divided by geographic region and practice area to be evaluated by the nominees’ peers based on professionalism and skill. The resulting list named almost 60,000 leading lawyers across 145 practice areas.
