Press release from: Baron & Budd, P.C.

DALLAS – For the third consecutive year, Dallas environmental law attorney Scott Summy of Baron & Budd, P.C., is recognized as one of the top attorneys in the country in the 2008 edition of “Best Lawyers in America.” Mr. Summy is honored for his work in plaintiff’s mass tort litigation.

Selection to the Best Lawyers list is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey that has been developed and refined for nearly 25 years. The 2008 edition of Best Lawyers is based on more than 2 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys from around the country. The entire list can be viewed at www.bestlawyers.com.

Widely recognized for his groundbreaking legal work involving groundwater pollution, Mr. Summy successfully filed and litigated the first MTBE groundwater case in the U.S. Under his leadership, Baron & Budd’s water contamination litigation practice has grown to be among the largest of its kind nationwide. Currently, the firm represents more than 180 municipalities, water providers, and private well owners in 19 states in MTBE groundwater contamination litigation, as well as in water contamination cases involving TCP, atrazine, and TCE.

"To know that other attorneys recognize the success of the firm’s water contamination practice is especially rewarding,” says Mr. Summy. “When we are successful, it means clean drinking water for the communities we represent.”

In addition to his Best Lawyers honors, Mr. Summy has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the prestigious Texas Super Lawyers list published in Texas Monthly magazine, and his work as lead counsel on behalf of a California environmental group earned his team the “Attorneys of the Year” award from California Lawyer in 2001.
