The Judges Have Spoken: O’Neil Receives Highest Judicial Award

O’Neil Wysocki, P.C. proudly announces that attorney Michelle May O’Neil has been awarded the 2020 Judicial AV Preeminent Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, an achievement that speaks to the widespread respect she has earned from both peers and the judiciary. O’Neil is the Senior Shareholder with the Dallas, Texas family law boutique firm O’Neil Wysocki. The Judicial Edition AV Preeminent award is Martindale-Hubbell®’s highest available rating. O’Neil’s legal ability and ethical standards were evaluated by members of the bar and judiciary in a confidential assessment. The Judicial Award of the Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent™ is especially noteworthy because it is based on the confidential opinions and recommendation of members of the judiciary familiar with O’Neil as a practicing attorney. The Judicial Edition award indicates that judges before whom O’Neil practices have given her the highest ratings available on her legal ability and ethical standards.

For over 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent Rating has distinguished the country’s elite attorneys. The Peer Review Ratings® are an objective indicator of a lawyer’s high ethical standards and professional ability. The judicial rating is only awarded to approximately 10% of all attorneys across the United States and is the highest rating offered.

O’Neil has dedicated her 28-year legal career to perfecting the practice of Texas family law, particularly in complex property divisions, business issues in divorce, and advocating for the expansion of LGBTQ+ rights in divorce and custody. She has been board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in family law since 1997. She mentors young women attorneys to uphold the highest standards of professionalism in their practices as well.
