(Houston, Texas) – Attorney Randy Sorrels, a partner in the Houston personal injury law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, has been recognized in Best Lawyers’ ® 2016 as Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs “Lawyer of the Year” for Houston. Only one attorney is recognized in each practice area in each community as a “Lawyer of the Year,” and this marks Mr. Sorrel’s second year to be honored with this title. He was previously named “Lawyer of the Year” in this category in 2013.
Mr. Sorrels was also included in the 22 nd edition of The Best Lawyers in America in two categories: Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs and Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. He has been recognized on the medical malpractice list every year since 2011 and on the personal injury list every year since 2012.
Mr. Sorrels was selected for the “Lawyer of the Year” distinction based on feedback during the peer-reviewed assessment process used by Best Lawyers.

For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.”
Each year, Best Lawyers reviews attorneys across the United States, soliciting reviews from thousands of lawyers. These reviews are tabulated to create lists of Best Lawyers in more than 126 practice areas. Best Lawyers® now partners with U.S. News & World Report, the leading rankings publication in the United States.
