Texas Lawyer has recognized Dallas partners Gemma Descoteaux and Carolyn Benson in its annual Professional Excellence Awards, which honors attorneys who have made their mark in the legal profession in Texas.

Descoteaux was honored as one of four “Best Mentors”, which recognizes lawyers who have helped less-experienced colleagues and peers become better lawyers.  Benson is among 25 Texas attorneys named in the “On the Rise” category, which honors the most promising lawyers under the age of 40 in the state.

Profiles of the honorees will be published in the September issue of Texas Lawyer magazine and an awards ceremony will be held on Sept. 18, 2019, at the Belo Mansion in Dallas.
