Fisher Phillips announced today that five Texas attorneys have been selected for inclusion in 2016 Texas Super Lawyers® list: Michael V. Abcarian, Bob Kilgore, Arthur V. Lambert, Stephen J. Roppolo and Teresa S. Valderrama. Fisher Phillips is a national management-side labor and employment law firm.
Super Lawyer selections are based upon independent research and peer nominations from the Thomson Reuters-owned publication. Recognition in Super Lawyers demonstrates an exemplary degree of respect and professional achievement the lawyer has earned from peers, with no more than 5 percent of attorneys in Texas selected to appear on the list.
Abcarian, the managing partner of the Dallas office, has been included on the Texas Super Lawyers® list for 12 consecutive years. He has more than 35 years of experience in all phases of labor and employment law, and has not lost a lawsuit in more than 20 years. He has handled hundreds of lawsuits ranging from large class actions to individual plaintiff cases.
It is the third consecutive year that Kilgore, a San Antonio attorney, has received this recognition. For more than 30 years, he has successfully represented Texas employers in claims involving discrimination, benefits, compensation and non-competes/trade secrets. This includes federal and state court litigation and administrative proceedings.
Lambert, a Dallas partner, has received this recognition for 11 consecutive years. He has represented employers in all aspects of labor and employment during his 27-year career. Lambert regularly counsels and litigates employment law matters involving sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination and non-competition disputes.
Roppolo, the managing partner of the Houston and San Antonio offices, is a seasoned veteran with more than 25 years of experience in labor and employment law. He has represented employers in matters of sexual harassment, discrimination, defamation, breach of employment contract and non-competition/trade secret disputes.
This marks the 13th consecutive year that Valderrama, a Houston-office partner, has been honored. Over her 27-year career, she has assisted employers in everything from internal corporate investigations to courtroom defense of class actions and discrimination claims. Her experience includes trade secret litigation and defense of whistleblower claims.
