July 15, 2016

Benson Varghese has been elected as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation — an honor reserved for few Texas attorneys. Each year, only one-third of 1 percent of Texas lawyers are invited to become Fellows. 

"I am grateful to have been elected into this esteemed group," Varghese said. "I look forward to furthering the Foundation's mission to promote justice in Texas."

Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation are selected for outstanding professional achievement and commitment to the community. Members are vetted and elected by the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. Selection is a mark of distinction and recognition.

Founded in 1965, the Texas Bar Foundation is the largest charitably-funded bar foundation in the country. To date, it has distributed more than $16 million to assist nonprofit organizations with a wide range of justice-related programs and services.

Varghese is the founder and managing partner of Varghese Summersett PLLC., a criminal defense firm based in downtown Fort Worth. A former prosecutor, Varghese has handled thousands of state and federal cases. He has been recogizned as a Top 100 Trial Attorney and was named a Super Lawyer Rising Star.
