Firm recognized for appellate and commercial work, personal injury defense and trust and estates litigation

Wright Close & Barger LLP is pleased to announce it has once again earned a top tier national ranking for its appellate work in the 2021 Best Law Firms rankings from U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.

The prestigious Best Law Firms list awarded Wright Close & Barger a Tier 1 ranking both nationally and in the Houston area for appellate work. The firm is also ranked in the top tier of Houston firms for commercial litigation, personal injury defense and trust and estates litigation.

This is the third straight year Wright Close & Barger has earned a place among the nation’s Best Law Firms. In developing the list, researchers from U.S. News and Best Lawyers evaluate thousands of responses from other attorneys and law firm clients. The firm once again earned impressive reviews from its clients and colleagues.

“Wright Close & Barger is outstanding,” said one client review.

“Wright Close & Barger has deep trial experience, which pays off on the appellate level,” said a partner at a Texas law firm. “They are unafraid to stand up against some of the most intimidating lawyers and judges and come away with great results.”

Tom Wright and Jessica Barger at Wright Close & Barger are excellent appellate lawyers. Their collective intellect and knowledge of the law is amazing. Both are stunning legal strategists and very professional. Their service is amazing, and they work tirelessly for their clients,” said the senior vice president and chief claim officer at a Texas financial services company.

Another client responded, “I have worked closely with Tom Wright at Wright Close & Barger for almost 20 years. His knowledge, skill and work ethic are unparalleled in the legal community. He successfully appealed two of my cases, winning both, when victory appeared all but impossible.”

Earlier this year, 13 Wright Close & Barger attorneys were recognized in the 27th edition of Best Lawyers in America, one of the most respected peer-reviewed attorney guides in the nation. The full list can be viewed at
