Four From Trial Firm Lyons & Simmons Recognized Among Top Plaintiffs Consumer Lawyers

Four attorneys with the trial firm Lyons & Simmons, LLP, led by co-founders Michael Lyons and Christopher Simmons, have earned recognition among the Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers for 2024.

In addition to Lyons and Simmons, partners Christopher Carr and Stephen Higdon were included on this prestigious list of the nation’s top plaintiff attorneys for their ability to “obtain accountability for the harm” caused by violations of consumer trust and for taking these individual tragedies on as their own.

The attorneys of Lyons & Simmons are widely known for their record jury verdicts and settlements in catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases, and for their focus on securing justice in cases that impact public safety. Lyons and Simmons currently hold leading roles on the plaintiffs’ executive committee for the In Re: Astroworld Festival MDL, the 2021 Houston mass casualty tragedy event.

Lyons served as co-counsel in a 2023 wrongful death case which secured an $860 million jury verdict for the family of a Dallas woman killed when a collapsed tower crane ripped through her apartment building. The firm was also instrumental in the permanent closure in 2023 of a Garland, Texas, bar with a history of alcohol-fueled violence and overserving patrons, including minors, following the death of an innocent driver in a head-on collision with a drunken, wrong-way driver.

In 2022, the firm obtained an eight-figure verdict for a woman left a paraplegic due to delays in ER care. The trial win was recognized as Texas’ second-largest medical malpractice verdict of the year by Texas Lawyer and American Lawyer magazines and named one of the “Most Impressive Plaintiffs Verdicts of 2022” by Courtroom View Network.

Their work has earned professional recognition from numerous legal and business organizations, including the 2021 John Howie Award from the Dallas Trial Lawyers Association based on the firm’s “courageous pursuit of justice in the face of adversity.”

Lawdragon honors are based on peer nominations, third-party research and extensive editorial evaluation. For more information on the 2024 list, visit here.
