HOUSTON – Acclaimed trial attorney Mark Lanier, founder of The Lanier Law Firm, has earned recognition as one of the country’s top personal injury lawyers in the 2014 edition of Benchmark Litigation, a leading guide to the nation’s best lawyers.
Mr. Lanier is among a select group of attorneys from across the U.S. to be honored in the annual publication. He is highlighted as a “Litigation Star” based on his work in toxic tort and personal injury litigation in recognition of his representation of those who have been injured or killed by unsafe drugs and other dangerous products. This marks the second consecutive year he has been featured in the Benchmark Litigation guide.
Later this year, Mr. Lanier will serve as lead trial counsel in the first trial against Toyota stemming from the nationwide multidistrict litigation over injuries caused by unintended acceleration in the company’s vehicles. Mr. Lanier also maintains a lead role in the nationwide litigation involving faulty hip implants, dangerous surgical mesh and deadly asbestos.
Benchmark Litigation is an annual guide to the country’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. The honorees are selected following six months of research, which includes extensive interviews with courtroom attorneys and clients.
The Benchmark Litigation honor follows Mr. Lanier’s recent recognition from The Legal 500 as a nationwide “Leading Lawyer” in mass tort litigation. He also has earned recognition this year among Texas’ Best Lawyers and Texas’ Top Rated Attorneys. He was named the 2012 Go-To Lawyer in personal injury litigation by Texas Lawyer newspaper, and earned a spot as one of the Top 10 attorneys in Texas in the 2012 edition of Texas Super Lawyers.
