DALLAS – Two partners at the Texas-based Family Law firm Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson, LLP, have been selected to D Magazine’s 2016 list of The Best Lawyers in Dallas.

This marks Scott Downing’s third appearance on the Best Lawyers list and the ninth time Jeff Anderson has earned this distinction. Both are Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and are Fellows of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

In addition to his D Magazine honors, Mr. Downing has earned recognition four times among Texas Super Lawyers’ Top 100 Lawyers in Texas and selection to The Best Lawyers in America 10 times. He has built his distinguished reputation on numerous complex and contentious trials across the state. Mr. Downing’s reputation for being a fighter in the courtroom brings an unexpected benefit, the ability to settle cases outside of that arena.

Mr. Anderson has been recognized twice among the top 100 Lawyers in Dallas/Fort Worth by Texas Super Lawyers, has been selected as a Texas Monthly Super Lawyer every year since 2003 – the year it started – and eight times to The Best Lawyers in America listing.  He grew up in a family of litigators where he learned a balance of aggressive trial skills and family values as he represents his clients in divorce, custody and property division.
