HOUSTON, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Noted Houston trial lawyer Mark Lanier is being recognized as one of the Top 10 attorneys in Texas in the 2012 edition of Texas Super Lawyers, marking the fourth time he has received the honor.
Mr. Lanier, founder of The Lanier Law Firm, also earned his eighth selection as one of the Top 100 attorneys in Texas based on his work in class action and mass tort litigation. He also was named one of the Top 100 lawyers in Houston, an honor he's earned every year since the Texas Super Lawyers list was first published in 2003.
The Lanier Law Firm attorneys Eugene Egdorf and Larry Wilson also earned spots on the exclusive 2012 listing of the state's top lawyers. Mr. Egdorf is highlighted for his business litigation practice, and Mr. Wilson earned recognition for his work in plaintiffs' personal injury litigation.
