HOUSTON, March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Houston law firm Arnold & Itkin LLP is pleased to announce that five firm attorneys are featured on the 2011 Texas Rising Stars listing of the top young lawyers in the state.

Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, Lisa Sechelski, Cory Itkin and Michael Pierce all earned selection to the 2011 Texas Rising Stars list. Mr. Arnold and Jason Itkin were first featured on the annual list in 2005, and this marks the second consecutive year that all five attorneys earned the Rising Stars honor.

All five attorneys are widely recognized based on their courtroom abilities, particularly in cases working on behalf of men and women suffering from significant injuries and financial losses caused by the negligent or careless actions of others.

To develop the latest Texas Rising Stars edition, researchers with Thomson Reuters' legal division solicited nominations from attorneys across the state, asking them to identify the top lawyers in Texas age 40 or younger and those who have been practicing law fewer than 10 years. The annual list honors less than 2.5 percent of all eligible Texas attorneys.

The 2011 Texas Rising Stars list appears in the April 2011 issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines.

Arnold & Itkin represents clients in high-stakes cases involving serious personal injury claims, maritime accidents, medical and pharmaceutical injuries, products liability and business disputes. To learn more, visit the firm's Web site at
