Alexander is named 2014 Texas Rising Star
Clif Alexander has been named a 2014 Texas Rising Star by Texas Super Lawyers. As such, he is considered one of the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state of Texas. It’s an honor bestowed on no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state. Alexander is the son of Dr. W.C. and Heather Alexander and was raised in Floresville.
At Sico, White, Hoelscher, Harris and Braugh, LLP in Corpus Christi, Alexander represents plaintiffs in cases all across the country. His cases range from serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, commercial and oil and gas cases, wage and overtime claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and other contingency fee-based cases. He places a special emphasis on representing victims of 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle accidents, oilfield injury cases and employers’ failure to pay overtime.
Alexander received his law degree from South Texas College of Law in Houston and earned a Bachelor of Science in political science with minors in both geology and geography from Texas Christian University (TCU). While at TCU, he was a three-year letterman for the Horned Frog football team and a member of the Leadership Council.
The selection for this list is made by the research team at Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business affiliated with Texas Monthly magazine. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area.
Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys in Texas under the age of 40 or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action, whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel or through other firsthand courtroom observance.
In addition to the general survey, the attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. The Rising Stars lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in Texas Monthly.
