Dallas appellate lawyers Deborah Hankinson and Jeffrey Levinger of Hankinson Levinger LLP once again have earned recognition among the best attorneys in Texas in the annual Texas Super Lawyers list.
Ms. Hankinson earned special recognition this year as one of the Top 10 attorneys in Texas, and Mr. Levinger is featured among the Top 100 attorneys in the state.
This year's Texas Super Lawyers listing is featured in the October 2011 issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers magazines, and is available at www.superlawyers.com.
A former Justice on the Fifth District Court of Appeals at Dallas and the Supreme Court of Texas, Ms. Hankinson is one of the state's most respected appellate lawyers. Mr. Levinger has nearly 30 years of appellate and trial experience, and serves as the Vice-Chair of the State Bar of Texas Appellate Section and the Chair of the Pattern Jury Charge Committee on Malpractice, Premises and Products.
Ms. Hankinson and Mr. Levinger routinely are recognized by their peers and the media based on their work in significant legal matters. Both have earned selection to The Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA's listing of the country's top lawyers, in addition to being featured as two of North Texas' top business defenders in the Dallas Business Journal.
To develop the list of the state's top attorneys, researchers with Thomson Reuters' legal division conducted a statewide survey asking attorneys to nominate their top legal peers. A blue-ribbon panel of lawyers then assisted Texas Super Lawyers staff with final selections, and fewer than 5 percent of all Texas lawyers were named to the list.

The firm's attorneys work with trial teams to develop strategies designed to put a case in the best position before, during, and after trial.
