DALLAS, May 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dallas-based trial firm Lyons & Simmons, LLP, is pleased to announce that co-founder Michael Lyons and firm partner Brian Lauten have been named to D Magazine's 2015 list of the Best Lawyers in Dallas.
"From individuals to small businesses to large companies, we take pride in being the firm clients turn to when the stakes are the highest," says Lyons. "Brian and I are honored by this recognition from our peers."
Mr. Lyons' 2015 selection is unique, as he now has been selected among Dallas' top lawyers based on his work in business litigation while also holding the same distinction previously in the areas of products liability, medical negligence, personal injury, and wrongful death. With a client-first approach, he has earned a reputation for delivering creative and innovative trial strategies in a wide variety of business cases involving breach of contract allegations, shareholder claims, royalty issues, securities law, director and officer liability, and construction disputes.
Mr. Lauten's practice focuses on civil trial law and he holds the rare distinction as a triple board-certified business trial lawyer. He is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Civil Trial Law Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, and Civil Pretrial Practice Advocacy by the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification. His professional honors include consecutive annual selections to either the Texas Super Lawyers or Texas Rising Stars listings of the state's top lawyers since 2004.
D Magazine's 2015 list of the city's top attorneys was determined through a peer-review voting process following the submission of thousands of ballots from local lawyers. The final list was compiled by an independent panel of distinguished attorneys working in conjunction with the magazine's editors, with only 598 lawyers honored this year. The complete list is featured in the May 2015 edition of D Magazine and available online at www.dmagazine.com.
Lyons & Simmons, LLP, has offices in Dallas and Houston and maintains a reputation as one of the state's premier trial law firms. Its lawyers routinely handle high-stakes cases of all kinds, including business disputes, intellectual property, products liability, personal injury, wrongful death, real estate, securities, and construction cases.
