Firm Places Two Attorneys on Texas Rising Stars List

By Weisbart Springer Hayes

AUSTIN — Weisbart Springer Hayes is pleased to announce that attorneys Sara Janes and Matt Wood have been named to the 2016 Texas Rising Stars list of the state’s top young lawyers.

This is the sixth consecutive year Ms. Janes has been named to the exclusive annual listing based on her representation of clients in appellate law matters. Her work includes trial and appellate litigation involving class actions, employment, trade secrets, complex family law, health care, pharmaceuticals, trademarks, insurance, and complex contract disputes.

This is the second year that Mr. Wood has been recognized for client representation in litigation claims that involve breach of contract, trade secrets, employment and discrimination issues, patent infringement, software licensing, and administrative law.

Texas Rising Stars honorees are selected by Thomson Reuters’ legal division, recognizing the state’s best lawyers under the age of 40 and those who have been practicing law for no more than 10 years. The honored attorneys are selected based on nominations from other lawyers across Texas and an extensive review by the publication’s editors. The complete 2016 Texas Rising Stars listing appears in the April issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines.
