Michael K. Hurst Named to the International Society of Barristers
Michael K. Hurst, name partner at the highly respected Dallas trial boutique Lynn Pinker Hurst & Schwegmann, has been named as a member of The International Society of Barristers.
The Society was formed in 1965 to recognize the legal profession’s top attorneys in supporting such principles as retaining the jury trial as the foundation for justice; offering training in trial advocacy; encouraging civility in an adversarial system; and protecting the rights of citizens, the independence of the judiciary and the integrity of the Bar.
Membership to the Society is by invitation only, following a rigorous screening process that considers the lawyer’s ability, experience, accomplishments and ethical standards as assessed by trial lawyers and judges.
Mr. Hurst has consistently been recognized as one of the top trial lawyers in the nation for large and high-stakes commercial and intellectual property litigation, and has won many high-profile verdicts. He is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and served as President of the Dallas Bar Association. Mr. Hurst was named Lawyer of the Year in Business Litigation in Texas for 2021 by Best Lawyers and has been named 12 times as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in the state by Texas Super Lawyers, published by Thomson Reuters.
Mr. Hurst earned his law degree from the South Texas College of Law in Houston in 1990, and his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas in 1987.
