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

Jane Robertson, Raul Sandoval, Amanda Clepper, Lauren Melhart, Dena Wilson, Julianne Morgan, and Samuel Sanchez were awarded the Texas Rising Stars designation.

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 second consecutive year Ms. Robertson, Ms. Clepper, Ms. Melhart, and Ms. Wilson have earned the distinction. Mr. Sandoval, Ms. Morgan, and Mr. Sanchez were named to the list for the first time.

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.
