Four Attorneys from Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson Earn 2018 Texas Rising Stars Honors

DALLAS – Four attorneys with Texas family law firm Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson, LLP, have made the prestigious Texas Rising Stars list of top lawyers in the state for 2018.

Recognized for their family law expertise are partner Paula Bennett and associates Ryan Kirkham, Holly Rampy Baird and R. Porter Corrigan II. Each of the lawyers assists clients with navigating matters such as property division, child custody, pre- and post-marital agreements, parental rights, and other challenges common to family legal disputes.

Ms. Baird, Mr. Kirkham, and Mr. Corrigan have all been recognized by Texas Rising Stars in previous years. This is Ms. Bennett’s first time being named. Mr. Corrigan is based in San Antonio; the other honorees work from the firm’s Dallas and Frisco offices.

“In putting together any list of the best and brightest attorneys in Texas, you’d have to include these four,” said firm partner Brad LaMorgese. “Their knowledge of the law and their dedication to their clients are nothing short of stellar. We’re very proud of the work they do.”

Once a year, the Super Lawyers rating service recognizes the top attorneys in the state 40 or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. The list is made up of lawyers who are nominated by their peers and then assessed in a rigorous editorial review process. Ultimately, only 2.5 percent of eligible attorneys are chosen.

The honorees will be featured in the April 2018 edition of Texas Monthly and the Texas Rising Stars issue of Super Lawyers magazine. To view the complete list of honorees visit

In addition to this year’s four Rising Stars recipients, the firm has more Top 100 Super Lawyers in Texas than any other Family Law firm in the state. Mr. LaMorgese and firm co-founders Richard Orsinger, Keith Nelson, Scott Downing and Jeff Anderson all made the 2017 Top 100 list for their family law expertise.
