Appellate, civil litigation, real estate & trust attorneys earn Super Lawyers honors

HOUSTON – Seven lawyers at Wright & Close LLP earned selection to the Texas Super Lawyers list for 2017, a recognition based on peer review and independent research.

Tom Wright made the list for his appellate practice, and Howard Close was selected for his civil litigation work. Both have been recognized by Super Lawyers since the Texas rankings began in 2003. Russell Hollenbeck and Raffi Melkonian were recognized for their appellate work; Andy Love for civil litigation; Randy Owens for business litigation, and Justin Campbell for trust litigation. Super Lawyers, a comprehensive and widely respected legal services guide, is owned by Thomson Reuters.

Super Lawyers uses a patented multiphase selection process that begins with nominations from lawyers and an evaluation based on professional achievement and peer recognition. No more than 5 percent of attorneys in the state make the listing. The 2017 complete list of selected attorneys will be published in the October issue of Super Lawyers and Texas Monthly magazines.
