HOUSTON – Texas Lawyer magazine named AZA lawyer Adam Milasincic “Litigator of the Week” for winning the dismissal of a frivolous lawsuit filed to squelch free speech and also recognized him on a list of young “Lawyers on the Rise” for his overall career accomplishments.
Mr. Milasincic’s free speech win was featured in the article “Litigator of the Week: The King of Texas’ Animal Anti-SLAPP Kingdom” (subscription required). This was the third time Mr. Milasincic prevailed for clients by using a Texas law that forbids “strategic lawsuits against public participation,” or SLAPP. It was his second such case involving a client advocating humane treatment for animals.
