DALLAS, April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas lawyers and the staff at D Magazine again have selected noted Dallas white-collar and criminal defense lawyer Barry Sorrels of Sorrels, Udashen & Anton for recognition among D Magazine's annual "The Best Lawyers in Dallas" edition.
The immediate past president of the Dallas Bar Association, Mr. Sorrels is a veteran Texas defense lawyer who routinely defends individuals and business interests in state and federal cases. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Mr. Sorrels has successfully represented a variety of high-profile clients, including nationally known sports personalities, business leaders and elected officials in matters ranging from complex federal fraud to first-degree murder.
In compiling its list of the city's most respected and successful lawyers, D Magazine asked practicing attorneys to identify Dallas lawyers, based on personal observation, who rank among the current best in their respective practice areas. Extra weight was given to nominations received from outside the honoree's law firm. D Magazine editors then asked a blue-ribbon panel of Dallas lawyers to review the votes and assemble the final list. The "Best Lawyers in Dallas" list will be published in the May 2012 edition of D Magazine.
"It's a special honor to be recognized by my attorney peers in North Texas for this prestigious listing," Mr. Sorrels says. "I'm grateful that the hard work I perform on behalf of my clients does not go unnoticed."
This marks the seventh time Mr. Sorrels has been included in the D Magazine list. Sorrels, Udashen & Anton name partner Robert Udashen also is honored in the 2012 list as one of the top criminal defense lawyers in North Texas.
A graduate of Columbia University and Southern Methodist University's Dedman School of Law, Mr. Sorrels is Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He has earned a national reputation as an expert legal analyst on CNN, MSNBC, and FoxNews, and is a frequent lecturer on topics such as cross-examination, closing argument, the intangibles of trial lawyers, and media relations in high profile cases.
