McCathern is made up of over 40 attorneys and 30 staff members who are all dedicated to reaching the firm’s goal and motto of improving people’s lives. The firm has offices located in Dallas, Houston, and Frisco, Texas as well as Los Angeles, California. Currently, McCathern lawyers practice in more than 25 areas including commercial and employment litigation, family law, criminal defense, and many others.
McCathern has seen many changes since it first opened in 1998. Founding Partner, Levi McCathern, and his long-time paralegal, Liz Criswell have remained a fundamental part of this firm since day one. “This is absolutely the very best place to work in the entire world,” said Liz, discussing things she has learned in 20 years of working at McCathern. “Collectively, I don’t think there’s anything we can’t do.”
Mr. McCathern also had some words of wisdom to share after building his business for 20 years. “I think at the end of the day it’s about people. We work together to earn a living for our families, but I never realized in doing so I would get a new family.”
Many McCathern attorneys have been honored over the years for their talents. Most recently, several firm attorneys have been named to the 2018 Super Lawyers Rising Stars list; the 2018 Best Lawyers in Dallas list by D Magazine; and on the Dallas’s Best Lawyers Under 40 list.
McCathern attorneys and staff go above and beyond their normal duties in the workplace to help those in the community as well. Many attorneys have spoken at conferences and presented continuing education events to educate and inform firm clients, insurance professionals, and legal professionals on important topics. McCathern attorneys have seen several favorable case outcomes and have welcomed new faces to the firm and to the partnership.
Congratulations on 20 years, McCathern!
