Mark Werbner was honored with the Dallas Bar Association’s Trial Lawyer of the Year Award at the 2011 Bench Bar Conference in Horseshoe Bay on September 22, 2011.

Werbner began his legal career at Carrington Coleman, where he and fellow attorney Dick Sayles first began working together. In 1994, they formed Sayles Werbner with the goal of handling large, complex cases in a small-firm environment. Specializing in complex business litigation, catastrophic personal injury, and white-collar criminal defense, Werbner is known for tireless trial preparation and a willingness to put faith in the jury. His multiple high-profile cases have been covered by a variety of national media, and he is currently involved in an international terrorism lawsuit as lead counsel for terrorism victims.

Werbner is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and in the International Society of Barristers. He is also a master in the Patrick E. Higginbotham Inn of Court. He consistently ranks among the top lawyers regionally and nationally by The National Law Journal, Dallas Business Journal, D Magazine, and Texas Monthly, as well as other notable publications.
