Nine Provost Umphrey Named to 2014 List of Texas Super Lawyers

BEAUMONT, TX, September 5, 2014 - Nine lawyers from Provost?Umphrey Law Firm have been selected to the 2014 Texas Super Lawyers List. Walter Umphrey, Bryan Blevins, Jr., Paul "Chip" Ferguson, Joe Fisher II, D'Juana Parks, James Payne, Darren Brown, Keith Hyde and Mark Sparks have been selected. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

Founding partner Walter Umphrey, as well as Chip Ferguson, Joe Fisher, D'Juana Parks, James Payne and Darren Brown are listed as Super Lawyers in the area of Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff. Bryan Blevins is listed as a leader in Personal Injury - Products: Plaintiff, Keith Hyde for Environmental Litigation and Mark Sparks for International Law. Both Bryan Blevins and James Payne have been named to the Texas Super Lawyers list every year since its inception in 2003. As evidenced by the firm's representation of Super Lawyers in multiple categories, the lawyers at Provost?Umphrey are time-proven trial lawyers for both personal injury and non-personal injury litigation.

In addition to the nine Super Lawyers, Jennifer Job, Matthew Matheny and Colin Moore were selected to the 2014 Texas Rising Stars list. The Rising Stars list is developed using the same multiphase selection process used for the Super Lawyers list, except lawyers selected to Rising Stars must be 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.

For 45 years, Provost?Umphrey's mission has remained to seek justice for those most in need - those who have suffered a personal injury or death due to the wrongful conduct of others. Our attorneys fight for our clients nationwide with offices in Beaumont and Houston, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee. Led by Walter Umphrey, Provost?Umphrey continues to be one of the most successful trial law firms in the nation by remaining Hard-Working Lawyers for Hard-Working People.
