Q: Outside your own firm, name an attorney in your field who has impressed you and explain why.
A: Terry Oxford of Susman Godfrey. We were adversaries in an insurance class action in Oregon several years ago — two Texas lawyers arguing over class certification in the Pacific Northwest. He was creative, ethical and persuasive in arguing his case and a great team player when we later found ourselves on the same side, defending our settlement against objectors.
