DALLAS, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The three founding partners of the Dallas law firm Simon, Ray & Winikka LLP have earned selections to the exclusive 2014 listing of The Best Lawyers in Dallas published by D Magazine.
Craig F. Simon is honored in the 2014 list of Dallas' top lawyers based on his work in business and commercial litigation. Fellow partner Matthew W. Ray earned selection to the list for his work for clients in labor and employment matters. Daniel P. Winikka is recognized for his extensive expertise in bankruptcy law and workouts.
"It's certainly gratifying when the legal community recognizes a client-focused boutique firm such as ours," says Mr. Ray. "This honor supports our goals to be among the best for solving clients' problems effectively and efficiently, and providing exceptional value."
A first time D Magazine honoree, Mr. Simon has served as lead counsel in numerous complex, high-stakes business disputes heard in courtrooms and arbitrations across the U.S. during the past 22 years. In addition to his legal abilities, clients also benefit from Mr. Simon's master's degree in accounting and his prior experience as a certified public accountant.
This marks the fourth consecutive selection to the Best Lawyers list for Mr. Ray, who has successfully represented both employers and employees for nearly 20 years. His track record includes employment cases involving discrimination, breach of contract, wage disputes, class-action claims and wrongful discharge, among others.
Mr. Winikka's business bankruptcy and related litigation experience includes nearly two decades of assisting clients in complex business restructuring matters. He represents debtors, committees, and secured and unsecured creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations, liquidations and out of court restructurings. This is the first Best Lawyers honor for Mr. Winikka.
To compile the annual listing, D Magazine's editors solicited nominations from lawyers across North Texas before making the final selections with the support of a select panel of area attorneys. The complete list of approximately 500 lawyers is featured in the publication's May issue, and is available online at www.dmagazine.com.
Previously practicing as partners in one of the largest, most prominent law firms in the world, the founding partners formed Simon Ray & Winikka LLP to create a top-tier law firm that provides real value to – and partners with - its clients.
