HOUSTON – Twelve attorneys from The Lanier Law Firm have been recognized on the list of the 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers in the nation for 2020 by the legal media guide Lawdragon. 

Each year, the Lawdragon 500 editorial staff develops the list by researching top verdicts and settlements nationwide and conducting interviews with other respected attorneys.
