Three From Lyons & Simmons Selected Among Best Lawyers in Dallas

Three attorneys from the trial firm Lyons & Simmons, LLP, have been selected among D Magazine's Best Lawyers in Dallas for 2024.

Firm co-founders Michael Lyons and Christopher Simmons were ranked among North Texas' top attorneys for plaintiffs in high-stakes personal injury litigation. Attorney P. Wes Black was honored for appellate work.

"We give our clients our all. I've spent my entire career developing the skills that help my clients win. The same goes for every lawyer at our firm," sai Lyons. "When clients hire Lyons & Simmons, they can rest assured that the firm will devote its full resources to their case."

For Lyons & Simmons, victory isn't just measured in large verdicts and settlements. It also involves increasing corporate accountability to make people's lives and wellbeing - not company profits - the top priority.

"We have assembled a team of skilled trial lawyers and a board-certified appellate lawyer to ensure that we have the resources necessary to combat corporate negligence on our clients' behalf," Simmons said. "We want to make companies keep people safe and prevent tragedies before they happen."

This is the 11th Best Lawyers in Dallas selection for Lyons. He has repeatedly been recognized by Texas Super Lawyers among the Top 100 attorneys in Texas and Dallas-Fort Worth and has earned honors from The National Law Journal, Best Lawyers in America and Lawdragon 500. He is a member of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forums.

Simmons' work on behalf of those who have been catastrophically injured or killed by the negligence of others helped earn his eighth combined selection to D Magazine's Best Lawyers and Best Lawyers Under 40 listings. A member of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forums, his work has also earned recognition from The National Law Journal, Best Lawyers in America, Lawdragon 500 and Texas Super Lawyers.

Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Black represents clients in cases involving catastrophic injury and wrongful death as well as high-stakes business disputes. He has briefed and argued cases before state and federal appellate courts, including numerous Texas courts of appeals, the Texas Supreme Court and the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. This is his fifth Best Lawyers in Dallas selection.

The Best Lawyers in Dallas is based on a comprehensive selection process that starts with peer nominations and includes extensive review by the magazine's editorial staff, assisted by a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys. The complete 2024 list is featured in the May issue of D Magazine.
