Four Dykema Lawyers Named as 2014 Texas Rising Stars by Super Lawyers

Recognition Conferred Upon Ashmore, Hoard, Nowak and Ross – All Resident in Firm's Dallas Office

March 17, 2014

Dykema is pleased to announce that four of its Texas attorneys—each a litigator and all resident in the Firm’s Dallas Office—have been named 2014 Rising Stars in the Texas edition of Super Lawyers.

The four are:

  • Alison R. Ashmore – Associate, Litigation (Business & Commercial)
  • Zachary Q. Hoard – Associate, Litigation (Business & Commercial)
  • Christine Adamson Nowak – Member, Litigation (Business & Commercial; Probate, Trust & Fiduciary Litigation)
  • Jason M. Ross – Senior Counsel, Litigation (White-Collar Criminal Defense & Government Investigations)

This is the fifth consecutive year Ross has been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers. For Ashmore and Nowak, this marks the third straight year each has earned Rising Star honors. 

The Rising Star list is the result of an exhaustive, multi-phase selection process that mirrors the patented methodology used to assemble the Super Lawyers list, with two important distinctions:

  • to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must either be younger than 40 years old or in practice for 10 years or less; and
  • while up to five percent of lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than two-and-a-half percent can be named to Rising Stars

Dykema congratulates Alison Ashmore, Zachary Hoard, Christine Nowak and Jason Ross on this very special recognition.
