Best Lawyers Selects Cindy Bishop as Lawyer of the Year for Environmental Litigation

Dallas attorney Cindy Bishop, founder of C Bishop Law, has been named to the 2021 list of The Best Lawyers in America for environmental law and environmental litigation. Further recognizing her accomplishments, the publication also recognized her with its “Lawyer of the Year” award for environmental litigation in Dallas-Fort Worth.

The Best Lawyers in America is an annual list that compiles the nation’s top attorneys based on a peer review process and independent research. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and community is honored with a “Lawyer of the Year” award; attorneys who are selected for the award receive particularly high feedback from their peers. Best Lawyers does not accept payment in exchange for inclusion on the list.  

For nearly three decades, Cindy has been assisting clients nationwide with resolving environmental problems through her experience as an attorney and chemical engineer. In one notable success, she saved her client more than $4 million in estimated cleanup costs. She has also reduced or eliminated state and federal penalties for other clients through the Texas Audit Privilege Act and EPA’s self-disclosure policy.

Throughout her career, Cindy has collected numerous accolades and certifications. She is a licensed professional engineer and has practiced before the U.S. Supreme Court, having litigated federal CERCLA contribution and cost recovery actions. She has appeared on the Super Lawyers list of the Top 50 Women Attorneys in Texas, has been ranked by Chambers USA for her work in environmental law, and has been included on D Magazine’s annual list of the Best Lawyers in Dallas.
