Thompson & Knight has announced that Partner Terry L. Simmons has been named to Worth magazine’s 2nd annual list of “Top 100 Attorneys” for estates, wealth planning, and philanthropy for high net-worth families for the second consecutive year. He is one of only four attorneys in Texas selected for this honor.

“I feel truly honored to be included in this prestigious list,” says Mr. Simmons. “Serving as an attorney and counselor for affluent families and their charities is both challenging and rewarding, and this selection speaks volumes to the outstanding service that our team of estate and exempt organizations lawyers provide to our clients.”

Worth is the only magazine devoted exclusively to the best interests and unique challenges of readers who possess substantial wealth. For its “Top 100 Attorneys” list, Worth solicited input from clients, financial advisors, family office executives, accountants, consultants, academics, and others who work with or closely monitor attorneys in this area of the law. Nominees then completed a detailed questionnaire regarding their educational credentials, professional affiliations, publishing history, and client references. The Worth editorial staff focused on finding attorneys who combined exceptional legal expertise with outstanding interpersonal skills, great tact, and the ability to think creatively in order to provide exceptional client service.

Mr. Simmons is a Partner in the Tax department of Thompson & Knight where he has a national practice in charitable gift planning, exempt organizations law, and estate planning. He speaks frequently on charitable gift and estate planning matters, having given over 250 presentations to various professional and civic organizations throughout North America over his 28 years in practice.
