Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 05, 2014

Each year since Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has published its Best Lawyers® in America list, a family law attorney with Goranson Bain Ausley has been included. This year, in addition to nine Goranson Bain Ausley family law attorneys being named to the list, Kathryn J. Murphy has been named Best Lawyers® Family Law “Lawyer of the Year” in Dallas. Only a single lawyer in each practice area within a community is honored with this distinction.

A partner in the leading Texas family law and divorce firm, Kathryn J. Murphy embraces collaborative law when it is the right fit for clients, and brings considerable skills to the courtroom when litigation is deemed necessary. She has been listed in Best Lawyers in America since 2003.

“As we have grown over the years, our focus has been on creating a culture of compassion and integrity while providing quality client representation,” said Thomas P. Goranson, founding partner. “To consistently earn both the respect and recognition of our peers for over three decades is humbling and representative of the culture we have built.”

In addition to Murphy, GoransonBain Ausley attorneys named to the 2015 Best Lawyers® in America List for family law are: Angeline Lindley Bain, P. Lindley Bain, Jeff Domen, Thomas P. Goranson, Thomas A. Greenwald, Beth E. Maultsby, Paula Larsen and Aimee Pingenot.
