AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Two lawyers from Austin-based business litigation firm George Brothers Kincaid & Horton LLP have earned "Lawyer of the Year" honors in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Name partners D. Douglas Brothers and B. Russell Horton, partner Gary L. Lewis, and Of Counsel Julie A. Ford are honored for their work based on nominations from other lawyers and votes from peers in the same practice areas.
