Five Underwood Lawyers recognized as Texas Rising Stars


At Underwood Law Firm we believe our lawyers and staff are a large part of the reason for our success. Annually, the Texas Rising Stars list is published and, we are proud to announce that five of our lawyers have been named to that list for 2019.

The Texas Rising Stars selection process is identical to the Super Lawyers process except that Rising Stars must be under 40 years old or been in practice for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are named to the Rising Stars list.

According to, the nomination process uses a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. 

Congratulations to those lawyers included in the list; John Atkins and Mitchell Moses – Business/Corporate Law; Jason Fenton and Stephanie James –Civil Litigation; Jennie Knapp – Litigation
