HOUSTON – Texas Super Lawyers has selected seven Wright Close & Barger attorneys for recognition in the prestigious peer-review legal guide for 2018.

Firm co-founders Tom Wright and Howard Close have earned honors every year since Texas Super Lawyers’ inception in 2003. Mr. Wright also is listed this year among the Top 100 lawyers in Houston, honored for his appellate expertise. Mr. Close was chosen for his civil litigation defense work.

Other firm honorees are Justin Campbell III for his estate & trust litigation practice;  Russell Hollenbeck and Raffi Melkonian for their appellate work; Andrew Love for his civil litigation defense practice; and Randall Owens for his business litigation work.

Super Lawyers, a comprehensive and widely respected legal services guide, is owned by Thomson Reuters. The publication uses a multiphase selection process that includes nominations from lawyers, peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than 5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected each year.

The complete list of honorees will be published in the Texas issue of Super Lawyers magazine and in the October issue of Texas Monthly. The full listing is available at https://www.superlawyers.com/.

Earlier this year, eight Wright Close & Barger lawyers were included in the 2019 edition of another prominent rating guide, The Best Lawyers in America.
