The 2011 selection marks the fifth time Dallas shareholder Shawn McCaskill has been featured in the Rising Stars listing for his appellate work. This is the third selection for Houston shareholder Misty Hataway Coné based on her work on appellate, civil litigation defense and insurance coverage matters. Senior attorney Jon-Bernard Schwartz of Dallas earned a spot on the list for the second time based on his business litigation work for clients.
“We hold each of these three attorneys in very high regard at Godwin Ronquillo and view them among the elite young legal minds currently practicing in this state, so it came as no surprise to see they were chosen to the Texas Rising Stars list,” says Donald E. Godwin, firm Chairman and CEO.
The Rising Stars list recognizes the top Texas attorneys who are either age 40 or younger, or have been in practice fewer than 10 years. Less than 2.5 percent of eligible attorneys are recognized in the 2011 edition, which appears in the April 2011 issue of Texas Monthly magazine and Texas Rising Stars magazine. To compile the annual listing, nominations are sought from attorneys previously featured on the prestigious Texas Super Lawyers list.
Godwin Ronquillo is home to four attorneys who were selected to the 2010 Texas Super Lawyers listing. CEO Donald E. Godwin, Managing Shareholder and COO Marcos G. Ronquillo and Executive Vice President Bruce W. Bowman Jr. were honored based on their expertise in Business Litigation. Appellate section chairman and Executive Vice President R. Alan York was selected to the list for his appellate work.
