CARRINGTON COLEMAN HONORED WITH ABA NATIONAL AWARD
The American Bar Association's Death Penalty Representation Project is honoring Carrington Coleman and the Denver firm of Rothgerber Johnson & Lyons with the Exceptional Service Award for the pro bono representation of Manuel Velez, who was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death in 2008. Partners Lyndon Bittle and Neil Burger, and Associate Jenny Smith, along with several other Carrington Coleman lawyers, have worked for over four years with the attorneys from Rothgerber Johnson & Lyons to discover, develop, and present evidence demonstrating that Mr. Velez's conviction was the product of misleading medical testimony and the ineffective assistance of his trial counsel.

Who We Are
We are a Dallas law firm with a nationally prominent litigation practice. We also have well-known corporate governance, employment, and real estate practices, to name a few. But practice areas don’t define us; our clients do. In Dallas, there is an imposing bigger-than-life statue of a Texas Ranger. It reads: “One riot, one ranger.” That’s the spirit in which we approach every matter. Our clients benefit from the results we deliver – not the number of attorneys we assign.
To us, service means this: We should represent one less worry to our clients. Our reputation for service and responsiveness can be explained simply – we make sure our clients’ interests become our own.
We have a reputation for being lawyers’ lawyers. That is to say, when law firms need counsel, they often turn to us. In fact, a lot of good lawyers refer to us as the second best law firm in town... after their own.
