Marisa Jeffrey Named to Texas Rising Stars for Second Consecutive Year (2018-2019)
By Amy Stewart Law
Texas Rising Stars recognized Amy Stewart Law associate Marisa Jeffrey on its 2019 list of the top attorneys under 40 for the second year in a row. To compile its list of honorees, Super Lawyers first requests nominations from the legal community, then conducts independent research followed by a peer review, which leads to a final selection. Only 2.5 percent of attorneys in Texas receive this distinction, and honorees are featured in a special section of Texas Monthly magazine.
“We’re incredibly proud of Marisa and all she has accomplished in a relatively short time as a practicing attorney,” said firm founder and managing principal Amy Elizabeth Stewart. “From professional to community recognitions, she’s truly the rising star that Super Lawyers says she is.”
This year’s Rising Stars selection marks the first award in 2019 for Marisa Jeffrey following a year of recognitions in 2018. In addition to last year’s selection by Super Lawyers, she was included on D Magazine’s Best Lawyers Under 40.
Marisa remains active in both firm and professional leadership. At Amy Stewart Law, Marisa handles insurance coverage disputes for the firm’s business clients. She also serves on the board of directors of both the Dallas Women Lawyers Association and the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers. She has published several articles on insurance law and presented to both in-house counsel and bar organizations on various insurance and litigation topics, including cyber, e-discovery, the tripartite relationship, and other principles of insurance law.
