Cort Thomas and Alan Carrillo Named 2024 Rising Stars; Mr. Thomas Named to the Up-and-Coming 100 List

March 26, 2024 by

Brown Fox is pleased to announce that Cort Thomas and Alan Carrillo have been honored as 2024 Rising Stars. Mr. Thomas received the unique distinction as a member of the Up-and-Coming 100. Only 2.5% of Texas lawyers under the age of forty or practicing less than ten years receive this coveted Rising Star honor, which is based upon an independent analysis of an attorney’s practice and a peer evaluation. And only the top 100-rated attorneys amongst the top 2.5% are honored on the Up-and-Coming list.

Brown Fox Partner Brian Robison shared, “I was thrilled to see Cort and Alan get this well-deserved recognition. They are two of the best young lawyers in Dallas. They consistently deliver great results for our clients, and they both practice law with integrity. We are fortunate to have such talented lawyers at our firm.”
