The Law Office of Carol A. Wilson, PLLC, has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year on the “Best Law Firms” annual list of outstanding legal practices. This achievement recognizes the firm as one of Dallas's premier family law firms.
To meet the eligibility criteria, a firm must employ an attorney who has achieved recognition in that year's annual Best Lawyers in America edition. Surveys are sent to each firm, and client and professional referral sources are consulted. Data is also collected from Best Lawyers ballots, and a final review determines which firms are included on the list and their recognized practice areas.
Best Law Firms is just one of the many recognitions Carol has received this year. She has also again been named to Texas Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, and D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas. She also celebrates her 31st year of being Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Carol Wilson has been selected for the 2023 annual Texas Super Lawyers list, marking her 14th year of recognition for her work in family law. Carol was also named for the seventh year to the list of the Top 50 women Texas Super Lawyers, and fourth year to the Top 100 D-FW Super Lawyers
These recognitions come alongside Carol and her firm once again being named to The Best Lawyers in America and Best Law Firms. Carol was also recently recognized on D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas.
Carol’s many years of national and regional awards highlight an illustrious career in family law that includes over 37 years of experience litigating and trying complex divorce, property division, and child custody cases. Since 1992, Carol has also met the additional rigorous experience and testing requirements to achieve her Board Certification in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Fewer than 10% of Texas lawyers have passed the Board Certification requirements in their area of legal specialization.
Super Lawyers uses a patented multiphase selection process that results in no more than 5% of the attorneys in each state being named to their list. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research, and each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
For the sixth year in a row, Carol A. Wilson has been named to The Best Lawyers in America©, which recognizes the top attorneys in the United States. Carol was included on the 2024 edition for her work in family law.
Carol celebrated her third decade of Board Certification in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization last year, and she has more than 35 years of experience litigating and trying complex divorce, property division and child custody cases.
Carol’s other regional and national recognitions include being named to D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas list since 2018, as well as multiple annual selections to Texas Super Lawyers, which named her one of the Top 50 women lawyers in Texas every year since 2017, and one of the Top 100 lawyers in Dallas-Fort Worth in 2020. The Law Office of Carol A. Wilson has been included on the Best Law Firms list published by Best Lawyers and U.S. News and World Report since 2020.
To develop their annual list, Best Lawyers conducts a multi-step review process that consists of nominations, peer review, analysis of feedback, and a final confirmation of eligibility before releasing their results. Attorneys are not permitted to remit payment in exchange for a listing.
Congratulations to Carol for being named, yet again, to D Magazine’s list of the Best Lawyers in Dallas for her work in family law.
To earn a spot on the list, D Magazine’s editors collect nominations from lawyers throughout Dallas/Fort Worth and then conduct an independent review in consultation with an anonymous group of leading local attorneys.
Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for more than 30 years, Carol has skillfully litigated and tried complex divorce, property division, and child custody cases for more than three decades.
In addition to being recognized by D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas list, she has also been recognized by Texas Super Lawyers for 13 years, including being named one of the Top 50 Women Lawyers in Texas from 2017-2022 and the Top 100 Lawyers in Texas from 2017-2020.
