No matter your politics or judicial philosophy, 2009 has been a historic year of milestones for our country and for lawyers of color. So this year it seemed particularly fitting for Texas Lawyer to publish Extraordinary Minorities in Texas Law as a way to celebrate the strength and diversity of our state and our legal community.

What makes the 25 lawyers in this special section extraordinary? In a word: impact. The Texas Lawyer editorial department began the six-month selection process by asking readers to nominate attorneys licensed to practice law in Texas who have had an impact in the state on firms, government, nonprofits, academia and/or the corporate world within the past five years (judges were not eligible). We read each of the nearly 400 nominations, then did our own research to arrive at the list of 25 influential lawyers.
