Call for Nominations: Texas Lawyer Professional Excellence Awards 2023


We’re opening nominations to our annual Professional Excellence Awards in Texas. You’ll notice

that we scaled back our awards categories this year, but we still wanted to highlight the great

work and achievements across the full breadth of the Texas Lawyer legal community.

The three categories we’re soliciting nominations for in 2023 are:

Attorney of the Year:

This award goes to the lawyer who in 2022 had the biggest impact on the law or the Texas legal

community or did the most to advance the cause of justice. (Some of this work may have

originated before 2022 and/or extended into 2023.) Please include a high-resolution color photo

of the nominee, at least 200 dpi.  A profile of the winner will be published in a Texas Lawyer

issue later this year.

Lifetime Achievement Awards:

Please tell us in up to 1,000 words about anyone living who has left a lasting imprint on the

Texas legal community. We’ll also ask for a brief Q&A from the nominee. Please include a high-

resolution color photo of the nominee, at least 200 dpi. Q&As of the winners will be published

in Texas Lawyer later this year.

On the Rise: 

Please tell us, in up to 1,000 words, about lawyers under the age of 40 (as of the submission

deadline) who have wielded influence in their practice areas in Texas and beyond. They should

be innovators, developing unique practice niches, amassing robust books of business,

demonstrating strong leadership qualities, showing expertise in litigation, in-house or

transactional work and committing themselves to pro bono, charitable and professional

volunteer work. Nominees must be under the age of 40 as of the submission deadline to be

eligible. Please include a high-resolution color photo of the nominee, at least 200 dpi, as well as

their date of birth.

Deadline for all categories is September 22, 2023.
