Karen Precella Named as Fort Worth Business Press Power Attorney


FORT WORTH – Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Karen Precella has been selected by the Fort Worth Business Press as a 2013 Power Attorney whose reputation in law is unmatched.

“Through her hard work and more than 20 years of legal experience, Karen has become the go-to appellate lawyer in Tarrant County and state-wide for complicated appeals and trial-strategy employed to preserve error,” said Karen Denney, Haynes and Boone partner. “In everything she takes on, Karen commits 100 percent of herself to the task. She is a strong example of a well-rounded power attorney, who is not only a leader in the courtroom, but also in the community.”

At Haynes and Boone, Precella serves as co-chair of the firm’s Appellate Practice Group and has briefed and argued numerous cases in the Fifth Circuit and Texas appellate courts. For example, in April 2012 she led the litigation team who won a significant appellate victory for the firm’s client, ARGO Data Resource Corporation. The win overturned the original judgment in the trial court that ordered, among other items, ARGO to pay a dividend of $85 million to its shareholders.

Precella is also an active member of the community, dedicating time to organizations such as the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation and the American Bar Foundation. Previously, she served as a director for the Tarrant County Bar Association, board member for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of North Texas – Western Region, and co-chair of the Appellate Practice Committee of the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation.

Honorees were nominated by their peers and selected by a panel of judges based on criteria including leadership qualities, community involvement, mentoring, contribution to firm growth and differences they have made in the legal industry.

Precella will be honored at the 2013 Fort Worth Business Press Power Attorneys awards ceremony and dinner on Oct. 9 at the City Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
