7 Cordell & Cordell Texas Attorneys Recognized As Rising Stars

Super LawyersSeven Cordell & Cordell Texas divorce attorneys were recently named Rising Stars in the family law practice area by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters rating service of outstanding lawyers. 

Jane Robertson, Amanda Clepper, Raul Sandoval, Tomekia Lee-Chaney, Samuel Sanchez, Julianne Morgan, and Dena Wilson all received the distinction.

Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in each state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.

This is the fourth straight year Ms. Robertson, Ms. Wilson, and Ms. Clepper have earned the honor. Mr. Sandoval, Mr. Sanchez, and Ms. Morgan were named to the list for the third consecutive year while Ms. Lee-Chaney was nominated for the second straight year.

Ms. Lee-Chaney, Ms. Morgan, and Mr. Sanchez work out of the firm’s Dallas office; Ms. Wilson is in the Fort Worth office; Mr. Sandoval the Austin office; Ms. Clepper the San Antonio office; and Ms. Robertson the Houston office.

The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 years old or under, or who have been practicing  for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
