Pirkey Barber PLLC associates David E. Armendariz and Alexandra H. Bistline earned placement on the 2021 Texas Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, a selective directory that accepts only 2.5% of attorneys statewide.

Both are ranked in the Intellectual Property Litigation category, reflecting Pirkey Barber’s standing as one of the top law firms in the country for protecting brands and resolving IP-related disputes.

This year marks Alex’s third consecutive Rising Stars listing. With a focus on trademark, copyright, and unfair competition litigation and enforcement, Alex practices in numerous federal district courts nationwide, as well as before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Alex will also appear in the 2021 Texas Super Lawyers Women’s Edition.
