Local law firm receives national recognition for the second year in a row

Tom Vick, Dan Carney and Mac Smith, who are partners in the firm Vick, Carney & Smith, LLP, were recently recognized for the second consecutive year by their peers as a Tier 1 Best Law Firm by U.S. News and Best Lawyers for inclusion in the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. The 2015 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 17,000 attorneys provided almost 600,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.

Smith said he and his partners are honored to receive the prestigious recognition again by U.S. News and Best Lawyers.

Smith stated they bring collective knowledge of the law, the civil and criminal courts, and the North Central Texas communities they serve to every client and every case. Vick, Carney & Smith has gained a statewide reputation as strong advocates of their clients' rights and as leaders in their chosen practice areas. The law firm has deep community roots. Vick, Carney & Smith was founded in 1958 by Tom Vick's father Gabe and is located in a renovated opera house across the street from the historic Parker County Courthouse.
