Texas Rising Stars Recognizes Marisa Jeffrey on 2018 List of Exceptional Young Lawyers

Big congratulations are in order! Our very own Marisa Jeffrey was named to the 2018 Texas Rising Stars list of outstanding young lawyers.
 
The Rising Stars list is comprised of the top up-and-coming Texas attorneys who are 40 or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less. Rising Stars are selected based on nominations by members of the elite Texas Super Lawyers list. No more than 2.5 percent of Texas attorneys were chosen for this honor. 

We aren’t surprised about the accomplishment: Marisa’s insurance expertise has grown exponentially since joining the firm in 2013. She regularly handles complex policy reviews and analysis, manages insurance coverage disputes both in litigation and on the claims track, and is our go-to cyber insurance guru.

2017 Brought Wins, Losses for Insurance Policyholders

Last year was a busy one in insurance world. The Texas Legislature passed HB1774, which could profoundly change the balance of power betweenTexas Bar Today policyholders and insurance companies—and not to the benefit of policyholders.

The courts were also busy, offering policyholders a mixed bag of wins and losses. The Texas Supreme Court issued important decisions in USAA Texas Lloyds Co. v. Menchaca and Great American Insurance Co. et al. v. Hamel; the 14th Court of Appeals weighed in on Wyly v. Integrity Insurance Solutions; and the United State Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued its ruling in AIG Specialty Ins. Co. v. Tesoro Corporation.


Amy Elizabeth Stewart presented a rundown of these important cases and legislation earlier this month at the Litigation Update Institute, co-sponsored by Texas Bar CLE and the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas. Below is the accompanying text. A downloadable pdf version of the materials can be found here.
