HOUSTON, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Houston law firm of Arnold & Itkin LLP is home to six attorneys who have earned recognition on the 2013 Texas Rising Stars listing of the state's top young lawyers. Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, Michael Pierce, Paul Skrabanek and Noah Wexler all are featured on the 2013 list of the state's young legal leaders. Kurt and Jason were first featured on the annual list in 2005, and this marks the fourth consecutive year that Cory and Michael have earned the Rising Stars recognition. This is the first year that Paul and Noah have been named to the exclusive list. All the Arnold & Itkin attorneys are honored for their work in plaintiffs' personal injury litigation, with the exception of Michael Pierce, who is recognized for his general litigation practice. Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin also are profiled in a feature story in the 2013 Texas Rising Stars magazine. In " Firm Commitment: At Arnold & Itkin in Houston, Friendship is the Main Ingredient for Success," the magazine details the founders' history as law school classmates and their leadership at one of Texas' top trial firms. Arnold & Itkin LLP regularly represents clients in serious injury cases and those who have suffered financial losses caused by the negligent or careless actions of others. The firm has successfully secured more than $500 million in verdicts and settlements during the past five years, and its $117 million injury verdict involving an ambulance crash was featured in The National Law Journal's recent listing of the Top 100 Verdicts of 2012. To develop the Texas Rising Stars listing, researchers with Thomson Reuters' legal division asked attorneys across the state to identify the top lawyers in Texas age 40 or younger and those who have been practicing law no more than 10 years. Fewer than 2.5 percent of all eligible Texas attorneys earn the distinction, which is published in the April 2013 editions of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines.
