Dallas Attorney Mark Werbner Honored as a Texas Trial Legend
DALLAS – Dallas attorney Mark Werbner, co-founder of the trial law firm Sayles Werbner, recently was honored along with an elite group of Dallas/Fort Worth-area attorneys recognized by the Dallas Bar Association as “Texas Trial Legends” based on their illustrious legal careers.
Werbner was one of eight trial lawyers recognized by the Dallas Bar Association’s Tort and Insurance Practice Section at a luncheon held on Feb. 2, 2010, at the Belo Mansion in downtown Dallas.
At the luncheon, the Hon. Patrick E. Higginbotham of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit moderated a panel discussion where Werbner and the other distinguished attorneys discussed their best practices for preparing and presenting cases for trial.
“It was incredibly humbling to be included in such a fine group of lawyers,” says Werbner. “I continue to learn so much from other lawyers every day, so I hope my thoughts and experiences were able to help others in attendance be better advocates for their clients.”
Werbner is one of a handful of attorneys to be Board Certified in both Civil Trial Law and Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. A veteran of more than 150 trials, his practice focuses on complex civil litigation, including both business torts and catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases.
No stranger to accolades, Werbner was recognized in the 2010 edition of The Best Lawyers in America based on his work in “bet-the-company” litigation, commercial litigation and white-collar criminal defense. He also has been earned a spot in the annual Texas Super Lawyers listing published in Texas Monthly magazine, D Magazine’s guide to the Best Lawyers in Dallas, and Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Lawyers in America.
Sayles Werbner maintains an international reputation as a proven trial law firm in complex business litigation, intellectual property matters, life-altering personal injury cases, product safety claims and practically every type of case that requires courtroom expertise. The firm’s work in a 2009 patent infringement lawsuit resulted in the largest intellectual property verdict in U.S. history.
