The National Trial Lawyers welcomes Waters Kraus & Paul partner to its exclusive organization for elite young trial lawyers.
Waters Kraus & Paul partner Gibbs Henderson has been selected for invitation to membership of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40. According to The National Trial Lawyers, Mr. Henderson is part of an elite group of the top 40 attorneys from the state of Texas who are under the age of 40 years old and eligible for national membership in the Top 40 Under 40 organization.
Launched in 2012, The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40 is a professional organization comprised of America’s top young trial attorneys. Membership in the group is by invitation only and is extended exclusively to those individuals who exemplify superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young trial lawyer.
“I continue to be impressed by the achievements of my fellow colleagues,” said Peter Kraus, one of Waters Kraus & Paul’s founding partners. “Gibbs is a tenacious lawyer who has proved his ability time and again for his clients.” Mr. Kraus continued, “It’s one thing for us to know how fortunate we are to have such a strong young talent on our team, but to see Gibbs’ achievements recognized by this great organization is really validating.”
Members of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40 are carefully screened prior to receiving an invitation. The selection process for this elite honor is based on a multi-phase system focused on objective and uniformly applied criteria. Honorees are identified through the evaluation of peer nominations combined with third party research, including:
- Reputation among peers, the judiciary, and the public; and
- The previous year’s achievements as a trial lawyer, such as settlements and verdicts
After evaluating Mr. Henderson’s qualifications, The National Trial Lawyers extended an exclusive invitation to him to be named a Top 40 Under 40 trial lawyer for his performance as an exceptional young lawyer. He has demonstrated superior qualifications, leadership skills, and trial results on behalf of plaintiffs in civil matters.
