Announcing a new SLS attorney! 

Nancy Ippolito joins us this month, after almost 4 years as an assistant general counsel at the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation. Prior to her work at the agency, Nancy handled workers’ compensation insurance defense for over 15 years in Austin, Texas.  She has been board-certified in workers’ compensation law since 2009.  According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, out of 110,000 licensed lawyers in Texas, only 7,150, or a mere 6.5% of all attorneys, are board-certified which requires passing a rigorous exam among other criteria.  We’re excited that Nancy has joined the Firm and look forward to working with her and getting to know her better.
