DALLAS, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dallas Business Journal has named Lance Currie to its list of 40 Under 40. Mr. Currie, a partner with Carrington, Coleman, Sloman & Blumenthal, LLP, will be recognized with 39 other impressive honorees in a special publication of the Dallas Business Journal and at an awards event on March 20.
More than 350 eligible nominations were submitted this year, representing nearly every industry of North Texas. In the end, judges selected the most impressive group of 40 individuals under age 40.
Mr. Currie, a construction and real estate attorney, stood out to judges for his courtroom success. His clients have included household names in Dallas — such as DFW Airport, Southwest Airlines and AT&T. In a recent example of his work, he resolved a real estate dispute for AT&T more than 20 years in the making.
"He is an example of why this year's class of honorees is so impressive," said Tracy Merzi, publisher of the Dallas Business Journal. "His work at Carrington Coleman is truly noteworthy." Mr. Currie stays equally busy away from the courtroom with active roles in leadership development organizations.
"As President and CEO of the Chamber, I watched Lance re-make the Young Professionals," said Dale Petroskey, president of the Dallas Regional Chamber. "His theme was 'Leave Your Mark,' and he challenged YP members to leave their marks on their community, each other, and themselves."
