HOUSTON – Acclaimed trial firm Rusty Hardin & Associates has been named to the Chambers USA Regional Spotlight Texas, a distinguished list of the leading small to medium sized law firms in the state.

“This honor is a true testament to the capabilities of our entire team,” said renowned trial lawyer Rusty Hardin. “I have never been prouder to work with such talented and skilled professionals, and I am pleased to see our advocacy and hard-earned results recognized in this way.”
