To compile the latest edition of Texas Rising Stars, researchers with Thomson Reuters' legal division sought nominations from attorneys across Texas, asking them to name the best practicing attorneys in the state age 40 or younger or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. A blue-ribbon panel of lawyers reviewed the list of nominees before making the final selections. Fewer than 2.5 percent of all eligible lawyers earned the 2012 Texas Rising Stars distinction.
