Amy Stewart Law Managing Principal Amy Elizabeth Stewart and Principal Beverly Godbey have been selected by The Best Lawyers in America© for inclusion on its annual list of outstanding lawyers. Amy was recognized for her work in insurance law, while Beverly was selected for both insurance law and commercial litigation. The 2020 list marks Amy’s eighth and Beverly’s fifth consecutive year to be selected for the honor.

This year is a momentous one for Amy, having celebrated ten years since opening the doors of Amy Stewart Law. Amy also continues to author “Texas Insurance Coverage Litigation: The Litigator's Practice Guide,” which is published with annual updates by Texas Lawyer Books and American Lawyer Media. Recent editions include an expanded section on commercial general liability policies, as well as a section on the rapidly evolving area of cyber insurance.

In addition, this recognition comes on the heels of another professional milestone for Beverly, who was recently named a fellow of the American College of Coverage Counsel, which honors the foremost practitioners of the insurance bar. This recognition was similarly bestowed upon Amy, who was inducted in 2013.

For more than 30 years, Best Lawyers has followed the same methodology for nominating and selecting its honorees. The five-step process begins with nominations (self-nominations are not permitted), followed by peer review, research, and a confirmation of eligibility. Because final results are reflective of the peer review process, lawyers are neither required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed.  

Amy Stewart Law assists corporate policyholders with strategic advice relating to pre-litigation claim negotiations and coverage denials, indemnity and insurance provisions in third-party contracts, insurance procurement and renewal issues, and complex and high-stakes insurance coverage and bad faith litigation. The firm was recognized for its expertise in insurance law with a Tier 1 ranking for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area in the 2018 Best Law Firms list published by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.
