AUSTIN – Chambers & Partners has recognized Alexander Dubose & Jefferson (ADJ) with a Band 1 ranking – the highest level – in appellate litigation. The firm is only one of three Texas firms to earn this level of distinction for appellate work.
In total, 10 ADJ appellate litigators earned recognition from Chambers in 2021, including Band 1 rankings in Litigation: Appellate – Texas for former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas Wallace B. Jefferson and ADJ founding partner Douglas W. Alexander. Chambers also recognized the work of ADJ’s Chair of U.S. Supreme Court and federal appellate practice Daniel L. Geyser.
“We are honored to receive this level of recognition from such a distinguished entity such as Chambers and Partners,” said ADJ managing partner Marcy Hogan Greer. “Acknowledgment of our firm’s place among the country’s elite appellate practitioners reflects the talent and depth of the lawyers we have on our bench. Our team of former justices and prominent appellate attorneys work tirelessly to provide clients with the highest level of service and sophistication, and earning a Chambers ranking affirms that our efforts are recognized not only by Chambers, but also by our clients and our peers.”
The feedback reported by Chambers confirms this high regard. As one client remarked, “(ADJ attorneys) are hands-down the best appellate lawyers in Texas.” Another praised the firm for having “exceptional talents and multiple subject matters to draw from.” One Chambers respondent summed up ADJ this way: “I look to them for guidance and insights and rank them among the highest of all the appellate teams I’ve worked with or been against.”
