‘He is Legendary’: Rusty Hardin Earns Multiple Honors in Prestigious Chambers USA Guide 

Rusty Hardin & Associates is pleased to announce that partner Rusty Hardin has earned a place in the 2024 Chambers USA guide, a prestigious legal listing that recognizes the top lawyers in the country. 

In his 13th year to be recognized by Chambers, Mr. Hardin earned the highest honor – Band 1 – in four categories. He was named a top trial lawyer in the nation, a top trial lawyer in Texas, was recognized for his work as a Texas litigator handling white collar crime and government investigations, and was honored for his commercial litigation work in Houston and surrounding areas.   

Chambers described Mr. Hardin as “an accomplished litigator with strengths spanning a broad array of civil and criminal matters.” 

“Many consider Rusty to be the best trial lawyer in America,” said a firm client. “He is someone you want on your team.” 

Other clients commented, “he is the best trial lawyer,” and “he is legendary.” 

London-based Chambers and Partners publishes its guide annually, selecting honorees based on qualities such as technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, and commitment. Rankings are determined through Chambers’ rigorous review process, which includes thousands of attorney and reference interviews. 

“Being able to help our clients while working with an incredible team of lawyers is the ultimate honor,” said Mr. Hardin. “It is very nice to be recognized for that work, and having that recognition come from Chambers is truly something special.” 

Mr. Hardin has represented companies and individuals across a broad range of industries in both civil and criminal cases. He has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America, Texas Super Lawyers, Lawdragon, The National Law Journal, Texas Lawyer, and The Texas Lawbook. 

Most recently, Mr. Hardin was named the recipient of the 2024 Ronald D. Secrest Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award from the Texas Bar Foundation. The award recognizes an active trial lawyer who has demonstrated high ethical and moral standards and exceptional professional conduct.
