Steven C. Laird, founder of Fort Worth’s Law Offices of Laird & McCloskey, has earned recognition for a 16th time among the Top 100 attorneys in the state across all practice focuses by Texas Super Lawyers. The veteran trial lawyer was also selected as one of the Top 100 attorneys in the Dallas-Fort Worth and among the top plaintiffs’ personal injury litigators in the state.
The Super Lawyers honors are just the latest for Mr. Laird, who earlier this year was the recipient of the 2021 Blackstone Award, the Tarrant County Bar Association’s most prestigious honor. The Blackstone Award recognizes an attorney who embodies ethical ideals, courage, and service to the legal profession. He was also inducted into the exclusive invitation-only International Society of Barristers this past summer.
Mr. Laird is among a select group of attorneys in the nation to earn Board Certification in Truck Accident Law from the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is also Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law and Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
One of the nation’s foremost serious injury and wrongful death lawyers, Mr. Laird’s personal injury practice focuses on highway accidents, especially those involving 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks, construction site accidents, product defects, oil and gas field injuries, and other serious personal injuries, as well as complex business disputes.
Texas Super Lawyers magazine, published by Thomson Reuters, is the preeminent guide to the state’s leading attorneys.
