October 1, 2018

Hall Estill, Oklahoma’s leading law firm, with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Denver and Northwest Arkansas, has been named a “Highly Recommended Law Firm” by Benchmark Litigation 2019, a leading national law publication. This is the highest category a law firm may achieve through this publication. Additionally, ten of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized as “Local Litigation Stars,” one has been named a “Future Litigation Star,” and two have been named as a “Benchmark Labor & Employment Star.” 

Attorneys Mark Banner, Mark K. Blongewicz, J. Kevin Hayes, William “Bill” W. O’Connor, Timothy S. Posey, Michael E. Smith, Steven W. Soulé, and D. Kenyon “Ken” Williams, Jr. were those selected as “Local Litigation Stars.” Attorney John F. Heil was selected as a “Future Litigation Star.” The attorney selected to Benchmark Litigation’s “Benchmark Labor & Employment Star” publication was Elaine R. Turner.

“Our continued recognition reflects the hardworking and talented attorneys we are fortunate to have at the firm,” said Mike Cooke, managing partner for Hall Estill. “To once again be acknowledged as one of the top firms in providing client counsel is something in which we take great pride. Our clients are our lifeblood and we could not achieve such recognitions without their confidence and trust.”

Benchmark Litigation is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the U.S.  The guide’s results are the culmination of a six-month research period that allows their researchers to conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators. These interviews are conducted to examine the casework handled by the firms and ask sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their state or national practice areas.
