Estes Thorne & Carr Earns Spot on National Client Service List

Nationwide surveys of GCs often read like a listing of the AmLaw 100. But nestled inside one survey of top legal decision makers is a Dallas-based litigation boutique that clearly holds its own with the big boys: Estes Thorne & Carr.

More than 11 years ago, a group of female attorneys left behind their Big Law careers to establish a firm that didn’t just claim to put the client first, but that was truly committed to developing sophisticated, dedicated, and sometimes even fun, relationships with its clients.

True to their vision, today Estes Thorne & Carr is a firm where zealous advocates and pragmatic strategists provide highly personalized representation across a variety of practice areas.

Their dedication to client service has earned the firm a place on the 2019 BTI Client Service A-Team List. Selection is reserved for firms and individuals that go above and beyond on the promise of outstanding client service. Attorneys cannot self-nominate, self-refer, or pay to be included. Clients have the final—and only—say. Selection to the list is based solely on unprompted feedback from GCs through in-depth telephone interviews.

In addition, firm founder Dawn Estes was singled out with a place among the BTI Client Service All-Stars, an elite group of just 335 attorneys nationwide whose work places them in a league all their own.

For the past 29 years, BTI has surveyed the top legal decision makers in organizations with $1 billion or more in revenue. Not surprisingly, the list is dominated by the biggest names in Big Law, firms with hundreds of lawyers and offices across the globe. And yet among those legal giants is the boutique litigation firm Estes Thorne & Carr offering large firm expertise with boutique firm service.

Entering its 11th year, Estes Thorne & Carr’s collaborative team of highly experienced attorneys represents clients in commercial litigation, family law, construction, ERISA litigation, labor and employment, and appellate matters. A Women’s Business Enterprise National Council-certified business, Estes Thorne & Carr is one of the largest women-owned law firms in the Southwest. Estes Thorne & Carr PLLC is located at 3811 Turtle Creek Blvd., Suite 2000, Dallas, Texas, 75219.
