DALLAS – The trial firm Lyons & Simmons LLP is pleased to announce partner Stephen Higdon has been named to D Magazine’s Best Lawyers Under 40, the annual listing of North Texas’ leading young lawyers.

Higdon is honored for his personal injury work representing plaintiffs. This is his third selection to the annual listing.
