HOUSTON – Noted trial attorney Mark Lanier, founder of The Lanier Law Firm, once again has earned recognition as one of Texas’ top attorneys after earning selection to the 2013 edition of Texas’ Best Lawyers.
In addition to being named among the state’s top lawyers, Mr. Lanier is featured in a profile article from the publishers of Texas’ Best Lawyers, “Standing Out from the Crowd: Mark Lanier Takes His Pursuit of Justice Outside the Courtroom.” The article highlights his legal career and the impact Mr. Lanier has made outside the courtroom in politics and religion.
“His quest to be true to himself means he’s gone up against his own political party to defend the rights of plaintiffs, and he has been outspoken about his faith and purpose both in and out of the courtroom,” the article says. “Those qualities, and more, certainly make Lanier stand out.”
The 2013 edition of Texas’ Best Lawyers is included in the May 31, 2013, editions of the Houston Chronicle, The Dallas Morning News, San Antonio Express-News, Austin American-Statesman and the Texas edition of The Wall Street Journal.
Attorneys honored in Texas’ Best Lawyers previously were selected to the annual listing of The Best Lawyers in America. Mr. Lanier has been featured in the Best Lawyers publication for nine consecutive years, and was recognized in 2012 as the Lawyer of the Year in Texas for mass tort litigation.
Best Lawyers’ researchers develop the prestigious listing through a rigorous peer-review survey consisting of nearly 3 million confidential evaluations submitted by other attorneys. The full listing of honored attorneys is available online at www.bestlawyers.com.
