Ross Sears Named “10 Best” in Texas
Ross Sears II, Texas-based legal malpractice attorney and co-founder of Sears Crawford, has been named one of the “10 Best” Attorneys in Texas by the American Institute of Legal Counsel, whose rating system helps clients throughout the United States make educated decisions when it comes to choosing the right attorney.
The “10 Best” Award is by nomination only, with each attorney’s eligibility for selection depending on nomination by either the Institute itself, a satisfied client, or a fellow attorney. An attorney must, as well as securing a nomination, have attained the highest degree of professional achievement in their field of the law — which means winning complex cases, acting as a resource for the community, and being a thought leader for the profession.
Most importantly, the “10 Best” Award requires that an attorney have done all of this while maintaining impeccable client satisfaction. It is one thing to achieve personal and professional success, but it is entirely another thing to do so while consistently holding your clients’ interests above your own.
Prioritizing the client’s interests over personal success is something that Sears Crawford has always done. When Ross Sears says that his clients come first, he means it.
In addition to Sears’ “10 Best” Award his other awards and accolades include:
- Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by Texas Board of Legal Specialization
- Voted “Texas Super Lawyer” by Texas Lawyer Magazine (2011-Present)
- Received one of the top Texas Verdicts (#11) for Breach of Contract Cases (2011)
- Voted “One of Houston’s Best Lawyers for the people” by Houston Magazine “H Texas” (2004-2006)
- Member “Multi-million Dollar Advocates Forum” (2004 – Present)
- Who’s Who in American Law (2000)
- Selected as 1 of the Top 100 Civil Attorneys in Texas by The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 (2019)
The importance of hiring the right attorney
Because we work in legal malpractice, clients often come to Sears Crawford with a certain level of mistrust. Their previous lawyer has likely done some things that make them dubious of the entire legal profession, and by walking through our doors they are choosing to put a very delicate situation in our hands.
We respect their reticence and want to rectify both their legal issues and their hangups with the profession. At Sears Crawford, we sue lawyers because attorneys should not succeed at the expense of their clients, and we believe in righting wrongs one client at a time.
We know as well as anyone that not hiring the right attorney the first time around can be a devastating mistake. Your attorney should be a trusted ally who uses their expertise to guide you through difficult times, not make things worse for you. If the attorney you first chose to represent you betrayed your trust, you may have another shot. In other words, if your previous lawyer was negligent and screwed up your case, and by doing so caused you harm, you may be able to sue them for legal malpractice.
In choosing Sears Crawford, you are also choosing professionalism, honesty, and loyalty. Our commitment is to our clients, not our colleagues, and we have the credentials to prove it.
