Dykema, a leading national law firm, is pleased to announce that Dallas-based attorneys Alison Ashmore, Jeff Fine and Chris Kratovil are listed as “Best Lawyers in Dallas,” in a special editorial feature in the May 2019 issue of D Magazine.

Each year, D Magazine canvasses the local legal community asking lawyers to nominate other practitioners within their respective practice areas whom they judge to be “the best.” After votes are tallied, a panel of eminent lawyers meet with D Magazine editors to evaluate the list. The list is finalized after the panel’s review.

The “Best Lawyers in Dallas” is an exclusive group: fewer than four percent of the practicing attorneys in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex merit this distinction.
