In recognition of the firm’s achievements in family law, “Best Law Firms” has selected Law Office of Carol A. Wilson, PLLC, as one of the top firms in Dallas. This is the third consecutive year that the firm was recognized on the annual list.
This recognition follows a series of honors that Carol has achieved this year, including Texas Super Lawyers, The Best Lawyers in America, and D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas, as well as her 30th year of Board Certification in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
To be considered for “Best Law Firms,” a firm must employ an attorney who was recognized on the corresponding year’s edition of Best Lawyers.
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.
For the 13th year, Texas Super Lawyers has named Carol A. Wilson to its annual list in recognition of her work in family law. Additionally, the publication has named her one of its Top 50 women lawyers in Texas for the sixth year.
This Super Lawyers honor comes on the heels of her placement on The Best Lawyers in America for 2023. In addition to other individual recognitions, her law firm was included on the annual U.S. News and World Report “Best Law Firms” list in 2022.
Carol is also celebrating her 30th anniversary of being Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a rigorous certification that comes with additional testing and continuing education requirements.
To select attorneys deserving of recognition, Super Lawyers uses a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research, and each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than 5% of the attorneys in every state are named to the list.
For the fifth 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 2023 edition for her work in family law.
Carol celebrates her third decade of Board Certification in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization this 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 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 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 12 years, including being named one of the Top 50 women lawyers in Texas in 2021. Additionally, The Best Lawyers in America selected her for their 2022 publication, the fourth year she was included.
