For the fourth year in a row, Allen Smith has been selected by the publishers of Texas Monthly magazine as one of its Super Lawyers. According to the publisher, “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 multi-part selection process involves development of a candidate pool from peer nominations, independent research and evaluation of candidates, and peer review of candidates. The background and experience of each candidate is assessed based on 12 indicators, including categories like verdicts, settlements, honors and awards, special licenses and certifications, and scholarly lectures and writings.
Allen can be found on pages 38 and 82 of the 2010 Texas Super Lawyers magazine, and in the Texas Super Lawyers supplement to the October issue of Texas Monthly magazine, both of which have recently hit newsstands. Allen is a shareholder at SettlePou and Chair of its Commercial Litigation practice group. He has been practicing law for over 25 years, and has been Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for 18 of those years.
