Sayles Werbner Attorneys Recognized in 2015 Texas Rising Stars Listing
DALLAS – Five attorneys from Dallas’ Sayles Werbner are being recognized among the top young lawyers in the state in the 2015 Texas Rising Stars list based on their courtroom work in Texas and across the United States.
Once a year, the publishers of Texas Rising Stars identify the state’s leading attorneys age 40 and younger, as well as those who have been in practice no more than 10 years. The annual guide is based on nominations from other lawyers and an exhaustive review by the publication’s editors. Only 2.5 percent of eligible Texas attorneys are selected for the honor each year.
The Sayles Werbner attorneys recognized in this year’s Texas Super Lawyers list have earned the same honor previously. The firm’s 2015 honorees and their areas of practice are:
- Joel Israel – Business Litigation
- Shawn C. Long – Business Litigation
- Sawyer Neely – General Litigation
- Darren Nicholson – Business Litigation
- Robert L. Sayles – Business Litigation
“These attorneys are some of the top up-and-coming lawyers in Texas or anywhere else,” says firm co-founder Richard A. “Dick” Sayles. “Everyone here takes great pride in helping our clients resolve their important cases, and this new generation of lawyers at Sayles Werbner means we will be able to continue that work for years to come.”
For more than 20 years, the attorneys at Sayles Werbner have represented businesses and individuals in a variety of legal matters. Last year, firm co-founder Mark S. Werbner and Mr. Israel successfully represented a group of U.S. citizens who were victimized in 24 separate attacks conducted by Palestinian terrorist groups in the West Bank and Gaza from 2001 to 2004. The federal court verdict against Jordan-based Arab Bank PLC marked the first time in history that a U.S. jury held a foreign bank responsible for providing material support to terrorists.
Sayles Werbner has an international reputation as a “go to” trial law firm in multifaceted business litigation, intellectual property, patent litigation, life-altering personal injury cases, product safety lawsuits and other areas of the law.
