Founding Attorney Michelle May O’Neil and Associate Attorney Katie Lewis, or O’Neil & Attorneys Dallas family law firm, were named to the 2013 Texas Super Lawyers List for divorce. Super Lawyers uses a rigorous, multi-phase evaluation process in order to select attorneys in each state for its final listings. Only 5% of attorneys in Texas are included in the Texas Super Lawyers list.
This marks the third year Ms. O’Neil has been chosen for inclusion in the top 5% list of Texas Super Lawyers. She has been board certified in family law since 1997, a group that includes only about 1% of the lawyers state-wide. In addition, Ms. O’Neil received an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell based on peer-review for having the highest level of legal ability and ethical standards. And, Ms. O’Neil has been given a 10.0 Superb (on a 1.0 to 10.0 scale) rating from Avvo.com, based on the Avvo mathematical formula for rating a lawyer’s background including years of practice, disciplinary history, professional achievements, and industry recognition.
This year has been an impressive one for Ms. Lewis. Earlier in 2013, Ms. Lewis received the recognition of being Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Out of over 70,000 attorneys licensed to practice law in Texas, only 7,000 have earned the right to be publicly recognized as Board Certified specialists, and only 825 are board certified family law specialists. As a further honor, Ms. Lewis was named to the Texas Super Lawyers list for divorce attorneys for 2013 based both on peer review and industry recognition of her abilities in Texas divorce law.
“We are honored to receive such high accolades from Texas Super Lawyers,” says O’Neil. “I am especially proud of Ms. Lewis for all of her achievements this year.”
