Since 2003 Fullenweider Wilhite has had attorneys nominated to the Thomson Reuters Texas Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists, a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
Fast forward to 2017, and Fullenweider Wilhite has not just maintained it’s leading reputation in the legal field, it has positioned itself as an unrivaled family law practice in Texas. Donn Fullenweider, Randall Wilhite, Michael Childs, Susan McLerran, Lauren Waddell and Steven Schweitzer are all included in the 2017 Texas Super Lawyers list, and associates Katie Custer and Grady Reiff have been named 2017 Rising Stars. Additionally, Donn Fullenweider and Randall Wilhite were named in the Top 100 in Houston list, and Lauren Waddell was named in both the Top 50 Women Lawyers in Texas and also the Top 100 in Houston.
Super Lawyers selects the Rising Stars list with the criteria that candidates must be either 40 years of age or younger, or have practiced for 10 years or less, and no more than 2.5% of the eligible attorneys in Texas are selected. This is Katie Custer’s fifth time on the list, and it is Grady Reiff’s first. When asked how he felt about being nominated for the first time, Reiff had this to say, “It is a big honor to be recognized by my peers in this way. Donn and Randy are family law legacies, I’m really lucky to be learning and working along side them every day, and I’m very grateful for their mentorship.”
