Lyons & Simmons Co-Founder Named Among DFW's Top 100 Attorneys

Trial lawyers Michael Lyons, Greg Deans earn Texas Super Lawyers distinction

DALLAS – Michael Lyons, co-founder of the Texas-based trial firm Lyons & Simmons, has been selected among Dallas-Fort Worth’s Top 100 attorneys in the 2018 edition of the Texas Super Lawyers legal guide.

The Top 100 list recognizes the DFW region’s leading attorneys regardless of practice focus. In addition to this distinction, Mr. Lyons earned selection among The Best Lawyers in America for 2019. He has also been recognized among the top “high stakes” trial lawyers in the state as a member of both the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forums, as well as a member of America’s Top 100 Attorneys for Texas Lifetime Achievement. In 2017, he was named among America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators for North Texas.

Also earning 2018 Texas Super Lawyers honors were firm co-founder Greg Deans for his products liability and mass tort work and partner Katie Stepp for her general litigation practice.

“Our firm has earned a reputation for successfully handling large, high exposure cases,” said Mr. Lyons. “This can only be achieved by having talented trial lawyers, and we are so pleased for our peers to recognize that.”

Earlier this year, three of the firm’s lawyers were selected to the companion Rising Stars list of the top young attorneys in the state. Partners Chris Simmons and Courtney Bowline were recognized along with associate Lana Beverly for their outstanding work on both personal injury and commercial litigation matters.

Mr. Simmons earned additional honors with his selection to the Top 100 Rising Stars list. Similar to Mr. Lyons’ Top 100 listing, the Top 100 Rising Stars roster recognizes the best young attorneys in the state regardless of practice focus.

Texas Super Lawyers is published annually by Thomson Reuters in Texas Monthly and Super Lawyers magazines. Selection is based on a statewide survey of lawyers followed by extensive editorial review. For more information, visit
