Sayles Werbner Name Partners Recognized Among Top Plaintiffs' Attorneys in America

DALLAS – Richard A. Sayles and Mark S. Werbner, founders of the Dallas-based law firm of Sayles Werbner, have earned spots on the Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiffs’ Lawyers in America listing.

Lawdragon, a national magazine and online rating service for the legal community, produces quarterly guides to the country’s top attorneys. The plaintiffs’ list will appear in the Winter 2007 edition, available in February.

“It is a tremendous honor to receive national recognition such as this,” says Mr. Sayles. “To know that our colleagues view our work so highly is quite a compliment.”

This marks the second consecutive Lawdragon honor for Mr. Sayles, who was named to the publication’s 500 Leading Lawyers in America last year. He previously has been selected among the Top Ten Super Lawyers in Texas in a survey published by Texas Monthly, and has been named one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas by D Magazine.

“For both Dick and me to make the list is wonderful,” says Mr. Werbner. “We would like to think that this shows that other attorneys think we do a good job for our clients.”

Mr. Werbner is routinely recognized as one of the top attorneys in the nation. He has been named one of the Top Ten Super Lawyers by Texas Monthly magazine, and his work in Terror Victims v. Arab Bank appeared in a Texas Super Lawyers magazine cover story titled “Squeezing Terrorists’ Bankbooks.” He also has been named a “Go To” Lawyer for plaintiff’s civil litigation by Texas Lawyer newspaper, and is repeatedly recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas by D Magazine.

The Lawdragon methodology combines verified online balloting and independent research involving interviews with thousands of attorneys nationwide. Those named to the list represent less than one-tenth of one percent of the legal profession.

Sayles Werbner represents Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and individual clients, and its high-profile cases have been featured in many of the nation’s leading business and legal publications. The National Law Journal has named Sayles Werbner as one of the top five law firms in the nation based on its success, and, in 2005, noted the firm’s victory in a bus accident lawsuit as one of the year’s Top 100 Verdicts.

Sayles Werbner has an international reputation as a “go to” trial law firm in multifaceted business litigation, intellectual property, life-altering personal injury cases, product safety lawsuits and other areas of the law. More information about the firm can be found at
