DALLAS, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For the seventh consecutive year, noted Dallas criminal defense lawyer John Teakell has earned a spot on the Texas Super Lawyers list of the top attorneys in Texas. The founder of Dallas' The Law Office of John R. Teakell has been selected to the prestigious list annually since 2005.

Mr. Teakell focuses on white-collar, securities and criminal defense matters in state and federal courts in Texas and throughout the United States.

A blue-ribbon panel of lawyers assists Texas Super Lawyers researchers with the final selections, which represent less than 5 percent of all Texas attorneys. The 2011 Texas Super Lawyers list appears in the October edition of Texas Monthly magazine and Texas Super Lawyers magazine.

The 2011 Texas Super Lawyers listing is only the most recent in a series of honors for Mr. Teakell.
