Sorey & Gilliland, LLP is pleased to announce that firm co-founders Dan Sorey and Derek Gilliland have been named to the 2021 Texas Super Lawyers list, a legal guide that recognizes the top 5 percent of attorneys in the state.
This is Mr. Sorey’s second consecutive year on the Texas Super Lawyers list. A seasoned personal injury attorney, Mr. Sorey has a proven track record of winning significant awards and verdicts for clients injured because of the negligence of others. He also brings to his practice a decade’s worth of experience as a law enforcement officer.
Mr. Gilliland, who has been recognized by Texas Super Lawyers every year since 2012, is a veteran patent trial lawyer who oversees his firm’s growing intellectual property litigation practice from his offices in Longview and Waco. He has earned a number of significant verdicts, including the largest patent infringement verdict in Washington state history.
Super Lawyers, which is owned by Thomson Reuters, makes its selections through a multiphase process that combines peer nominations and evaluations with independent research. The final list reflects only the top 5 percent of practicing attorneys in Texas.
“It is an honor every day that our clients put their trust in us to help them during their most challenging times,” said Mr. Gilliland. “To be recognized for that—for doing what we love – is really icing on the cake.”
This is the latest honor for Mr. Sorey and Mr. Gilliland, who recently earned recognition in The Best Lawyers in America, another highly respected peer-review attorney guide. The 2021 Super Lawyers list will be published in the November issues of Super Lawyers and Texas Monthly magazines. To review the full list, visit www.superlawyers.com.
