“Selecting the Top 10 is never easy,” said Androvett founder and CEO Mike Androvett. “There is no question that Texas is at the forefront of national debate over everything from the border wall to gun control measures. But just as important are the local issues directly affecting the lives of Texans.”

The firm, which has been honored as the state’s top legal PR agency by Texas Lawyer each year since 2013, was inducted into the magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2016. The Androvett team has compiled its annual top 10 legal news list since 2011.

Among the headlines featured:

    1. Great summary, Jill Roe.
      We are seeing a campaign of “one upsmanship” with each candidate trying to out do the other all resulting in a Death Spiral for themselves, the Democrat party and ultimately The United States of America if successful.
      Additionally, there are no original thoughts or rational foresight regarding the real consequences of these goals.
      Most consequences guarantee economic disaster for ALL.
      We must understand that the now Democrat party has NOTHING to do with Democracy.
      PS: John F. Kennedy was the last great Democrat President
      PPS: I USED to be a registered Democrat, but realized the Democrat party has NOTHING to do with Democracy.
      PPS: I vote in EVERY election now.

  2. It’s hard to vote against “Santa Claus”. Hopefully real adults know he really doesn’t exist.
    My relatives are from both former and present Socialist countries (former democracies with Constitutions modeled after The United States of America)
    Socialism sucks!
    Same promises there, same tragic, unfulfillable results.
    Who falls for this stuff?
    “Socialism is great…until you run out of other people’s money “. Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister , Great Britain.
    Bernie is on a new campaign focusing on “getting rid of all the “Billionaires”.
    Notably, Bernie is a “millionaire “ , so he will be safe from his own campaign.
    Another …”Tax the rich, feed the poor, till there are rich no more”.
    How does this help anyone?
    I am a first generation Legal Immigrant.
    I have always followed my family’s instructions to BE A CONTRIBUTOR, MAKE A DIFFERENCE “
    The question which will truly distinguish us is, …Are you a TAKER (victim, entitled,special) or a MAKER in this great United States of America?
    Now, it is your turn to PROVE IT.
    PS: Hint: Shrill screaming with fist in the air demanding it’s all about you does not qualify as a MAKER.
    Now, I have to get back to work…
