Amy Witherite Named to Top Women Attorneys in Texas List
DALLAS – Amy Witherite, Founding Partner of the personal injury law firm Eberstein Witherite has been named to the Top Women Attorneys in Texas list, published in the January 2020 edition of Texas Monthly. This recognition is a direct result of Witherite’s selection to the 2019 Texas Super Lawyers list, a national annual honor reserved for five percent of attorneys in each state. Witherite has achieved this distinction for 17 consecutive years, dating back to its inception in 2003.
The goal of Super Lawyers is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse list of exceptional attorneys that can be used for clients seeking legal counsel. All lawyers on the list are nominated and voted on by other attorneys, often from competing firms. Eberstein Witherite attorneys Shelly Greco, Adewale Odetunde, and Rob Loar also recently received recognition from Super Lawyers.
“We Keep Life Running for our clients who have been injured due to serious accidents. Our clients tell us they can feel a difference in the level of service we provide at Eberstein Witherite,” says Witherite. “Making the Super Lawyers list for 17 years shows that the legal community also admires the way we take care of our clients.”
Witherite has built her reputation as a tough and powerful force in the personal injury legal community. In addition to work she has done on behalf of thousands of Texas clients, Witherite’s vision is to provide that same standard of highly effective and professional representation for truck wreck accident victims across the country. In 2018, she opened Witherite Law Group in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Trucking and insurance companies are ruthless in litigation because so much money is at stake,” says Witherite. “Clients need a law firm with experience handling these cases and the expertise to investigate, interpret, and present evidence in their favor. That’s what we do for our clients and we win for them.”
While the number of female lawyers has grown significantly since Witherite earned her law degree from Texas Tech School of Law in 1993, male attorneys still dominate the industry in Texas and across the country. According to the state bar, about 1 in 3 Texas attorneys are women. Female representation is even lower in personal injury law, where women represent only 7-percent of board-certified attorneys.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a Top Women Attorney in Texas, particularly for personal injury law. Throughout my career, there have been many times when I was the only woman in the room. It has never stopped me from charting my own path and fighting for my clients.”
