Career opportuinities in legal professions abound across many of the state’s metro areas, and legal recruitment specialists can help even the most inexperienced workers find a great position. Recent appointments are giving voice to the important trend of hiring taking place in the Lone Star state.
For example, a Kim Law Firm press release reported on a new top-level appointment at the prestigious law firm, which operates in state and federal courts throughout the state. Denise H. Mitchell will be a new counselor at the Houston headquarters of the firm.
“Denise’s experience in both civil and criminal courtrooms provides her a sophisticated perspective that can give our clients an advantage,” says Houston American Board of Trial Advocates chapter president John Kim. “Her strong background in commercial litigation and her work for legal and financial professionals provide Denise with a keen legal eye in our cases.”
Texas law firms are also being recognized by industry panels for their hard work. According to the Sacramento Bee, Dallas law firm Aldous was rewarded by Texas Lawyer newspaper for their continuous work in courtrooms and high-profile cases.

Texas is home to many high-tech industries due to the prevalence of oil and gas in the state. As such, companies specializing in this subject matter need lawyers and legal professionals to draft copyright and patent claims, advise business leaders in matters involving regulatory compliance and serve many other needs. The major cities in Texas are often home to a number of technology focused law offices, and the Austin metro area is no exception. Recently, a major firm announced its intention to open a new branch in the state’s capital.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Wick Phillips Gould & Martin, LLP will be expanding into the Austin area from previously-established offices in Dallas and Fort Worth. This law firm has more than 16 years of experience in the high-tech legal industry, and recently appointed veteran lawyer Shauna Martin as a partner in the practice’s new branch.
The new office in Austin will have to deal with high-profile cases that may well require a significant amount of negotiation. For example, Pegasus News reported on an ongoing case involving the proposed Arts Center of Northern Texas in Frisco. Law firm Bourland, Wall & Wenzel was hired as an outside consultant after a lack of funds caused legal controversy.
“It is not about asking the law firm to do a specific thing, it is more about asking them what can be done — what is allowed and what is not allowed. We need all three cities to understand what their options are as we continue to look at this,” said Frisco Mayor Maher Maso, according to the news source.
