Family Law Attorney Richard Orsinger Again Named Among Texas’ Legal Elite

SAN ANTONIO – Noted San Antonio attorney Richard R. Orsinger, head of the San Antonio office of Orsinger Nelson Downing & Anderson, L.L.P., has been named the 2011 Texas Family Lawyer of the Year by The Best Lawyers in America.

Mr. Orsinger has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in Family Law every year since 1987 and in Appellate Law since 2007. He holds dual certification in both Family Law and Civil Appellate Law from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

The Best Lawyers in America selections are based on nearly 3 million confidential evaluations in which attorneys across the country are asked to rate their professional peers.

In addition to the Best Lawyers honors, Mr. Orsinger also was named for a ninth consecutive year as one of the leading attorneys in the state in the 2011 Texas Super Lawyers list. Since the inaugural list was compiled in 2003, he has earned a number of individual honors, including earning the third-highest number of votes among all Texas attorneys in 2010, in addition to being named among the Top 10 lawyers in Texas and the Top 50 attorneys in Central and West Texas.

To compile the 2011 Texas Super Lawyers listing, nominations were solicited from more than 70,000 attorneys across Texas. Additional evaluation was conducted by an attorney-led research team, with fewer than 5 percent of the state’s attorneys earning selection to the final list.

Texas Super Lawyers appears in the October 2011 issue of Texas Monthly, as well as the standalone Texas Super Lawyers magazine published by Thomson Reuters. The full list is available at
