Cox Smith, the largest law firm in San Antonio, today announced that 10 of its attorneys and five of its practice areas were recognized in the 2014 edition of Chambers USA, an annual legal guide that compiles rankings of the nation’s best lawyers through research, client interviews and testimony. The firm’s Immigration practice received global recognition for the first time in Chambers Global 2014, a guide that ranks lawyers and law firms with leading international practices from across the world.

Cox Smith’s Tom Alleman (Insurance), Mark Andrews (Bankruptcy/Restructuring), Mike Ferrill (Antitrust), Pam Huff (Intellectual Property), Karen Neeley (Banking & Finance), Kathy Poppitt (Healthcare), Edward Rios (Immigration) George Tarpley (Bankruptcy/Restructuring), Kathleen Campbell Walker (Immigration) and Deborah Williamson (Bankruptcy/Restructuring) were selected in their respective practice areas. The firm’s Antitrust, Bankruptcy/Restructuring, Immigration, Insurance and Intellectual Property practice areas were also recognized, including national and international recognition for Cox Smith’s Immigration practice.

“Being recognized for the work we do on behalf of our clients is an honor,” said Deborah Williamson, managing director of Cox Smith. “Like us, Chambers places a huge emphasis on client feedback and it’s a testament to the outstanding work our attorneys do on behalf of our clients every day that we have been recognized again.”
