Criminal Defense Attorney John Teakell Earns 10th Texas Super Lawyers Honor
Dallas lawyer again recognized for criminal, white-collar defense expertise
By: Attorney John R. Teakell
A former federal prosecutor and senior trial counsel with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Mr. Teakell is a veteran defense lawyer and founder of the Law Office of John R Teakell (http://www.teakelllaw.com/)
The Texas Super Lawyers list is compiled based on nominations from among the more than 70,000 practicing Texas lawyers, an extensive review by Super Lawyers researchers and a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys. This year’s list is published in the October 2015 editions of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers magazines, and is available online at http://www.superlawyers.com.
Mr. Teakell’s white-collar defense practice includes cases involving fraud, embezzlement, computer crimes, environmental law violations, drugs and firearms violations, counterfeiting and criminal copyright infringement. Mr. Teakell’s successes for his clients include many cases in which he was able to obtain early dismissals or significant charge reductions during the pre-indictment stage.
“Sometimes victory is a not guilty verdict from a jury,” Mr. Teakell says. “Many times, victory is achieved by intervening to reduce or dismiss charges early in the process.”
In addition to the Texas Super Lawyers recognition, Mr. Teakell has been honored as one of Time magazine’s “Leaders in Criminal Defense,” while Forbes magazine recently called him one of the top criminal defense lawyers in Texas.
Before entering private practice, Mr. Teakell spent 12 years as a federal prosecutor in U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, including the Northern District of Texas and the District of Puerto Rico. His background also includes serving as a Senior Trial Counsel for the SEC.
The Law Office of John R. Teakell delivers proven representation for companies and individuals in a variety of white-collar and other criminal defense matters, including grand jury proceedings and internal investigations involving allegations of fraud, bribery, embezzlement, insider trading, stock option backdating, tax evasion, and public corruption.
