Credibility Beyond Awards
Since retiring from the Texas Supreme Court, I’ve had the opportunity to work with each of the partners of Reese Marketos—either on the same side or in opposition. Working with these lawyers, who are good to their word, respectful of litigants and each other, but tenacious in factual investigation and research of the law, is invigorating and enjoyable.
