Frank L. Branson Recognized Among Dallas Trial Lawyers Association’s ‘Legal Legends’

Branson honored for groundbreaking courtroom career

DALLAS – The Dallas Trial Lawyers Association (DTLA) has honored veteran trial lawyer Frank L. Branson with its inaugural “Legal Legends” recognition for a “career dedicated to achieving justice for those who have been harmed.”

The DTLA singled out Mr. Branson for a lifetime of work in advancing the best practices of trial lawyers inside and outside the courtroom. Over more than four decades, Mr. Branson has secured numerous record verdicts and settlements on behalf of individuals harmed by dangerous products and reckless and negligent corporate practices.

Considered one of the pioneers of modern trial science, Mr. Branson is widely known for his impressive litigation work involving negligent trucking and transportation companies, pipeline companies, oilfield operations, and auto manufacturers. In addition, he is among a generation of trial lawyers who successfully adapted their personal injury litigation experience to business torts.

Mr. Branson and the other trial lawyers at The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson recently earned the No. 1 product liability verdict in the nation in 2018 for a $242 million verdict on behalf of a Dallas family whose two young children were seriously injured when the seatbacks in their Lexus collapsed during a rear-end collision. It was the fourth top verdict won by the firm in the last six years, according to VerdictSearch.

Also honored at the April 4 Legal Legends ceremony were attorneys Sylvia Demarest, Al Ellis, Ted Lyon and Windle Turney.

Earlier this year, Mr. Branson was recognized by the National Trial Lawyers as one of the 50 Most Influential Lawyers in America. In addition, Mr. Branson has the distinction of being one of Texas Lawbook’s “Lions of the Texas Bar.” He also has been included on Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers list of the Top 10 lawyers in Texas for 12 straight years, on D Magazine’s list of Best Lawyers in Dallas every year since 2001, and in The Best Lawyers in America guide annually since 1987.
