Local attorney earns place on Super Lawyers list
Thursday, 20 October 2011 by Keith Bahlmann
Richard A. Dodd, a partner with Cappolino Dodd Krebs LLP in Cameron, has been named to the Texas Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in Texas for 2011.
The new Super Lawyers list will be be published in the October issue of Texas Monthly, which is on the newsstand now.
This peer-reviewed recognition comes on the heels of the announcement in August that the firm was named one of the "Top 20" personal injury law firms in the nation by Newsweek magazine.
"This recognition from two major sources is humbling." said Dodd. "It is a concrete demonstration of our commitment to helping our clients find the resources they need to recover from serious injuries."
More important than this recognition, Dodd said, is the fact that he and his partners have made the lives of many ordinary working people better. "When many of our clients come to us they are hurting and frightened. They are often struggling with serious injuries and have huge medical bills, or they've lost a loved one in an accident and don't know where else to turn."
Cappolino Dodd Krebs LLP represents people in complex litigation including asbestos exposure, birth trauma, personal injury, product liability, oil and gas lease royalties and wrongful death.
Dodd grew up on a farm in rural Milam County and brings the work ethic he learned there to his profession.
Farming continues to be a big part of his life.
He is very active with environmental conservation efforts, which is evident in hobbies such as bird watching, raising acres of wildflowers and planting thousands of trees.
He supports local arts organizations, FFA and 4H groups as well as national organizations, like the Brain Injury Foundation and Autism Speaks, that work to make life better for the disabled.
