Five Partners Named Among “Best Lawyers in Dallas” by D Magazine

Best-Lawyer-in-DallasFive partners in the Dallas office of Culhane Meadows have earned spots on the 2014 list of “The Best Lawyers in Dallas” as published by D Magazine. The firm’s honorees to this exclusive list of attorneys are: Jeff Crouch (business litigation), Kelly Rittenberry Culhane (insurance law), Stephen Gilhooly (corporate law), Lynnette Warman (bankruptcy & workout) and Ryan Whitfill (franchise law).

“We are incredibly proud of our partners and this recognition is well-deserved for these fine lawyers,” says Grant Walsh, co-managing partner of the firm’s Dallas office. “As clients and attorneys continue to learn about our innovative approach to delivering exceptional and efficient legal services, it is no surprise that our peers in the legal community are starting to take notice.”

To compile the Best Lawyers list, D Magazine editors solicited nominations from lawyers across North Texas. A hand-picked panel of attorneys then worked with the magazine’s staff to determine the final list, which honors Dallas’ top lawyers in a range of practice areas. The complete list is featured in the May 2014 edition of D Magazine and is available at
