HOUSTON, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --The Houston civil litigation firm Legge,
Farrow, Kimmitt, McGrath & Brown L.L.P. is being honored for having the 2014
Texas Litigation Department of the Year in the small firm category by the
publishers of Texas Lawyer newspaper.

The publication says Legge Farrow "not only wins big cases. It also has helped
clarify maritime and insurance law."

An example is the firm's representation of Anadarko Petroleum Corp. in a
personal injury suit appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Partner
James T. Brown and associate Jeanie Tate Goodwin argued that a deepwater
floating offshore facility was not a vessel and not capable of transport. That
meant the injured plaintiff could not seek compensation as a seaman under the
Jones Act.

"From an insurance risk perspective, you're talking about saving millions of
dollars," says Legge Farrow managing partner Gerard J. Kimmitt. "Our
understanding of maritime, energy, and insurance law often pays off with big
savings for our clients."

The newspaper also cites Legge Farrow's favorable resolution of an offshore
construction and insurance coverage dispute that created new Texas Supreme
Court precedent and enabled the clients to recover almost all their fees,
costs and damages. Partner Glenn Legge referred to the case as "a labor of
love that lasted almost 10 years."

The article, "Small Legge, Farrow Wins Big Litigation," appears in the June 2
edition of Texas Lawyer. Legge Farrow earned top honors alongside midsize and
large firms as well as honorees in specialty practice areas.

One of the firm's longtime clients is TETRA Technologies Inc. Perry Hamburger,
manager of risk and insurance, noted the firm's good track record and ability
to quickly analyze legal problems and provide practical responses for clients.

"They have a wide range of experience and depth of knowledge," he told Texas
Lawyer.

firm that represents domestic and foreign companies in federal and state
courts. The firm's office is located in Houston and its attorneys are licensed
