01/08/2014


Law firm Haynes and Boone, LLP tops the list of North Texas large law firms with the most women and most minority attorneys, according to Dallas Business Journal research.

Haynes and Boone also the overall largest North Texas firm with 228 local attorneys, has 82 female lawyers and 42 racial or ethnic minority lawyers, giving the firm 36 percent women and 18 percent minorities in its lawyer ranks.

That compares to a 33 percent female and 14 percent minority attorney ratio in Dallas County, and 33 percent female and 18 percent minority statewide, according to the State Bar of Texas.

“Statistics have shown that a diverse team produces a better product,” Felicity Fowler, partner at Haynes and Boone and co-chair of the firm’s Attorney Diversity Committee, told me in an interview. “We want our firm to reflect Dallas."
