Austin Appellate Lawyer Ryan Clinton Named to 2012 Texas Rising Stars List


DALLAS, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The appellate law work of Hankinson LLP attorney Ryan Clinton has landed him on the 2012 Texas Rising Stars list, which highlights Texas' brightest young legal minds.

This marks the eighth time Mr. Clinton has earned selection to the Texas Rising Stars list. The 2012 edition appears in the April issue of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines. No more than 2.5 percent of all Texas attorneys are named to the list, which identifies the state's up-and-coming lawyers through a peer-nomination process.

"We're glad the publishers at Texas Rising Stars think as highly of Ryan as we do," says Rick Thompson, managing partner for Dallas-based Hankinson LLP. "He has established a strong presence in both state and federal courts on behalf of our Austin office. We're proud to say he's our colleague."

Mr. Clinton's accolades and accomplishments are numerous. He has delivered more than a dozen oral arguments in Texas appellate courts, including four in the Texas Supreme Court. As a former state assistant solicitor general, Mr. Clinton has earned a reputation for effectively handling impactful and high-profile cases.

Beyond his legal track record, Mr. Clinton is a strong advocate for animal rights, receiving the Oakland, Calif.-based No Kill Advocacy Center's Henry Bergh Leadership Award in 2009 based on his work to reform animal shelters locally and nationally. Mr. Clinton's written commentaries on animal rights issues have been published in newspapers across the country, in addition to feature stories about his work to improve the lives of lost and homeless pets.
