Peer lawyers and the staff at D Magazine have again named Johnston Tobey Baruch shareholders Robert Tobey and Chad Baruch to the prestigious Best Lawyers in Dallas list.

This is the ninth consecutive year that Mr. Tobey has been named to the publication’s list. He was selected for his strong client results in professional liability litigation. He is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Consumer and Commercial Law. Throughout his 40-year career as an attorney, he has built a reputation for his effectiveness in the courtroom and knowledge of civil law and ethical issues in legal practice management. He is currently serving a term as president of the Dallas Bar Association.

Mr. Baruch has been named to the Best Lawyers in Dallas list 10 years in a row. He is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Civil Appellate Law. His recognition by D Magazine for appellate law comes from his high-profile appellate work and prominence as a constitutional law scholar.

“When you think of ethical lawyers you want to hire to try a professional malpractice case or bring a court case up on appeal, you want Robert and Chad on your side,” said firm co-founder and managing shareholder Randy Johnston. “They are outstanding in their specialties, but they also both thrive in our firm’s team environment where we collaborate on client strategies using the best of both of their abilities.”

Founded on incredible success helping lawyers and judges navigate legal and ethical issues, Johnston Tobey Baruch is one of the few firms of its size that has trial and appellate practices under one roof. The firm offers personalized, committed service guiding each professional malpractice, commercial litigation, or civil case throughout the process. The firm’s three name shareholders are Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and each has been individually named Lawyer of the Year for Dallas-Fort Worth by Best Lawyers in America.

Attorneys on the Best Lawyers in Dallas list are selected through a nomination process by other North Texas lawyers. A blue-ribbon panel of peers evaluates the tabulated list and works with the editorial staff to select the finalists. The complete list is featured in the May 2020 edition of D Magazine and available at
