In the latest in a series of recognitions for litigator Chrysta Castañeda, the founder of The Castañeda Firm has been recognized on the annual list of Super Lawyers.

“This has been a wonderful year for me and my firm, and I’m grateful to my colleagues, clients and peers for making it possible,” said Ms. Castañeda.

The Dallas Business Journal recently recognized her as one of its Women in Business Award recipients for her outstanding professional achievements and contributions to the Dallas business community. She was also included on the list of D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas for her work in commercial litigation.

She was also named one of the National Law Journal’s Elite Trial Lawyers following a $146 million victory on behalf of T. Boone Pickens and Mesa Petroleum.

Super Lawyers uses peer nominations and an independent evaluation system to arrive at its final list, which recognizes less than 5 percent of the eligible attorneys in Texas on its annual list of outstanding attorneys.
