Press release from: Hankinson LLP

/ PR Agency: Androvett Legal Media
DALLAS – Dallas appellate lawyer and mediator Deborah Hankinson of Hankinson LLP has been named one of the nation’s leading appellate attorneys in the 2013 edition of Benchmark Appellate.

Benchmark Appellate, published by London-based Legal Media Group, is a compilation of the nation’s go-to appeals lawyers. Honorees are rigorously screened by the publication’s editorial team, which conducts extensive face-to-face interviews with judges, leading appellate lawyers and general counsels of Fortune 500 companies to identify the country’s leading appellate attorneys.

In the latest edition, Ms. Hankinson earns high marks for her “strategic approach to appeals at all phases of litigation. In addition to handling litigation at the appellate stage, the firm also works at the earliest stages of litigation to preserve the record for appeal, form a litigation strategy in anticipation of appeal, and handle dispositive motions.”

“I’m honored to be included as one the nation’s top appellate lawyers,” says Ms. Hankinson, a former justice with the Supreme Court of Texas and the 5th District Court of Appeals in Dallas. “At Hankinson LLP, we try to provide the best possible counsel for clients, and I believe this honor shows we’re making it happen.”

The Benchmark Appellate listing is the latest honor for Ms. Hankinson based on her expertise in mediation, arbitration, appellate law and legal problem solving. In addition to appearing in Texas’ Best Lawyers magazine, she previously was named by The Best Lawyers in America as the “Dallas Appellate Lawyer of the Year.” Regularly honored in D Magazine’s “The Best Lawyers in Dallas” list, she also has been named among the Top 10 attorneys in Texas by the publishers of Texas Super Lawyers magazine, in addition to recognition from Chambers USA, Texas Lawyer and the Dallas Business Journal, among others.
