Super Lawyers Names Texas Rising Stars List for 2016

Apr 05, 2016

Super Lawyers, the Thomson Reuters lawyer rating service, has announced the 2016 Texas Rising Stars list. These two lists are comprised of outstanding attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes nominations, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.


The 2016 Texas Rising Stars list is published within:

  • The 2016 Texas Super Lawyers Magazine - Rising Stars distributed to more than 62,000 lawyers in Colorado and the ABA-accredited law school libraries.
  • A Rising Stars special section devoted to selected attorneys in Texas Monthly in April 2016, reaching more than 2.8 million readers.
  • the online attorney directory


In this issue we are honored to tell the stories of amazing attorneys who are making a difference. That includes business litigator Adam Milasincic, with Houston's Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing, who tells us about the many hats he has worn: reporter, campaign manager and even disc jockey. One title will remain for life: highest scorer of 2,464 test-takers on the 2011 Texas Bar exam. Then at KoonsFuller in Southlake, family law attorney Jessica Janicek has handled headline-grabbing cases such as the 2013 struggle by Marlise Muñoz's family to have a brain-dead, pregnant woman removed from life support. And Richard Cheng, co-head of the health care group at Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller in Dallas, tells how a willingness to take risks led him to a successful career in his complex practice area.


We encourage those interested to be a part of our selection process. For more information about how we select these top-rated attorneys, go to
