LRM Awarded Tier 1 Ranking

Gray Reed & McGraw has been recognized as a "Tier 1" law firm by U.S. News and World Report.

Houston's Family Law Section and Dallas's Health Care Law Section have been ranked as Tier 1, and Houston's Trusts & Estate Section has been ranked at Tier 3.

To determine the rankings, U.S. News-Best Lawyers surveyed thousands of law firm clients, leading lawyers and law firm managers, partners and associates, marketing officers and recruiting officers. Each were asked what factors they considered vital for clients hiring law firms, for lawyers choosing a firm to which to refer a legal matter, and for lawyers seeking employment.

Firms were ranked based on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, integrity and whether they would refer a client to the law firm. In addition, information was collected about pro-bono commitment, diversity and the size and complexity of client matters. All of the data were combined into a U.S. News-Best Lawyers overall score for each firm.
