Mike Muskat and Michelle Mahony recognized among the top labor and employment attorneys in Texas
Muskat, Mahony & Devine is pleased to announce that firm partners Mike Muskat and Michelle Mahony have been named to the 2020 list of Texas Super Lawyers, a prestigious legal ranking that recognizes no more than 5 percent of Texas attorneys each year.
This is Mr. Muskat’s eighth year recognized by Texas Super Lawyers for his labor and employment work. Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, he has successfully litigated hundreds of cases on behalf of employers involving nearly every type of employment law claim and is often called on to handle the most challenging employment and counseling matters. In addition to the Super Lawyers honor, Mr. Muskat was named a Labor and Employment Star by Benchmark Litigation earlier this month.
This is the sixth year Ms. Mahony has been recognized by Texas Super Lawyers for her work in labor and employment. Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, she is a seasoned litigator who has spent more than 20 years defending both large and small employers in a wide range of employment and wage and hour cases. Ms. Mahony was also named among the Top Women Attorneys in Texas for 2020.
“We are passionate about the work we do for our clients so recognition is always nice,” said Mr. Muskat. “But what is really special about being named to Texas Super Lawyers is that other lawyers determine the list. To be recognized by our peers is truly an honor.”
Researchers for Super Lawyers compile the annual list of honorees based on nominations from more than 70,000 practicing lawyers in Texas. A blue-ribbon panel of attorneys then assists with final selections.
This is just the latest honor for Muskat, Mahony & Devine. Partner Corey Devine was also selected to the 2020 list of Texas Rising Stars, an exclusive listing of the top young lawyers in the state.
Mr. Devine, recognized for his work in management-side employment litigation, is among the top 2.5 percent of Texas Lawyers in the state identified through a rigorous Super Lawyers selection process. Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, he has successfully litigated hundreds of traditional employment, wage and hour and unfair competition claims.
“We are pleased and proud of Corey’s recognition,” said Mr. Muskat. “We get to see him in action each and every day, and to say he’s a talent is an understatement. So it is nice to see him honored in this way.”
The Super Lawyers list is published in the November issues of Texas Monthly and the Texas edition of Super Lawyers magazine.
