For the second straight year, Allen Smith was selected by the publishers of Texas Monthly magazine as one of its Super Lawyers. The selection process began many months ago, when over 60,000 Texas lawyers were invited to participate in the nomination process. Lawyers were asked to nominate the best attorney they’ve personally observed in action.
Once all of the nominations were in, a specialized research department examined the background and experience of the candidates, evaluating indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Allen’s name can be found on pages 66 and 106 of the 2008 Texas Super Lawyers magazine, and on page 66 of the Texas Super Lawyer supplement to the October issue of Texas Monthly magazine, which have recently hit the newsstands. Allen Smith is a shareholder at SettlePou and Chair of its Commercial Litigation practice group. He has been practicing law for 24 years, and has been Board Certified in Commercial Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for over 16 of those years.
