In recognition of their expertise in personal injury and wrongful death litigation, Dallas trial lawyers Michael Lyons, Chris Simmons and Stephen Higdon have been honored among Dallas’ Best Lawyers by D Magazine.
Selected to the 2020 listing based upon his work on behalf of plaintiffs in personal injury, products liability and medical malpractice litigation, this is the seventh time Lyons has been honored as one of Dallas’ leading lawyers. He is among an even more select group of attorneys to have been recognized by D Magazine for both personal injury and business litigation. Earlier this year, Simmons and Higdon earned recognition on D Magazine’s 2020 listing of the Best Lawyers Under 40 in Dallas.
“Dallas is home to some of the finest trial lawyers anywhere in the country,” said Lyons. “It is truly an honor to once again be mentioned with this incredible group of lawyers.”
The D Magazine recognition is just the latest in a series of prestigious honors earned by the attorneys since the launch of Lyons & Simmons.
Lyons and Simmons earned selection to the elite 2020 Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers guide.
Additionally, Lyons earned a place on National Law Journal’s prestigious Plaintiffs Lawyers Trailblazer listing for 2020.
Simmons was recognized among the top 100 attorneys under the age of 40 for 2020 by Texas Rising Stars. It was his fourth consecutive selection to the list of the state’s top 100 young attorneys regardless of practice focus.
Both Simmons and Higdon were named to Rising Stars’ listing of the state’s top young personal injury attorneys. Simmons for the seventh time, and Higdon for the second.
“Our sights are set on results for our clients rather than accolades or awards,” said Simmons. “However, professional recognitions are an indication we are getting the job done in the right way for our clients.”
“Most of our cases are David v. Goliath stories, where it is us against some giant institution with a team of lawyers from a big firm whose strategy is to outspend and outflank you. Our attitude is ‘bring it on,’” said Lyons. “The mission of Lyons & Simmons is to provide a representation on par or better than that of any billionaire or giant multinational corporation. Economic status or what ill-fated misfortune you’re faced with should not determine your chance to win in the civil justice system."
