To compile the list, editors first call for peer nominations of lawyers both within and outside of their own firms whom they have witnessed firsthand and “would rank among the current best.” All nominations are then evaluated by a panel of eminent Dallas-area lawyers and D Magazine editors before the final list is generated. The complete list can be found in the May issue of D Magazine.
