Three McCleskey Attorneys Considered Super Lawyers
The McCleskey Law Firm is again the only Lubbock firm with three attorneys – Dennis Burrows, Dustin Burrows and Ben Davidson – rated as Super Lawyers in the annual nationwide listing.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
The attorneys were named in the following practice areas:
- Dennis Burrows: Personal injury/defense
- Dustin Burrows: Business litigation
- Ben Davidson: Personal injury/defense
“As we get close to celebrating our 90th anniversary next year, this is another example of the excellent quality our firm offers people in Lubbock, the South Plains and beyond,” said Jerry Kolander, McCleskey’s managing partner.
Don Graf, longtime McCleskey partner and one of the earliest board certified attorneys in West Texas, said, “Having been with the firm more than 55 years, I’m glad to see the next generation continue the quality we’ve had from the time I joined the firm until today.”
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process, according to its website.
“Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys,” it said on the website.
