Douglas W. Poole was again selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2013 in the field of Railroad Law. This year, Mr. Poole was named Lawyer of the Year, Houston Area, from all lawyers in the Houston area selected as Best Laywers in America®. Mr. Poole has been named a Best Laywer in America® every year since 2009.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
