Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in Texas through a patented multiphase selection process. The Texas lawyers who receive the highest point totals during this selection process are recognized in Texas Super Lawyers’ Top Lists. Dallas-based family law attorney Kris Balekian Hayes is among five percent of Texas attorneys added to the highly sought-after list. To be recognized by the Super Lawyers List, honorees undergo peer nominations, evaluations and independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that serves as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. 

“It is an honor to be recognized as a top attorney in Texas,” says Kris Balekian Hayes, managing partner of Balekian Hayes, PLLC. “Getting a divorce is an incredibly stressful and difficult process – that’s why it is so important to choose an attorney you can trust. It’s our policy that while honesty may cost us, we owe it to our clients to give it to them. This philosophy has rewarded us with recognition by industry leaders and referrals from our loyal clients.”

After completing her Bachelor of Business Administration at Southern Methodist University in Dallas., Kris earned her law degree at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio. She continued her education by earning a Master of Business Administration at St. Mary’s University School of Business. With more than 20 years of experience practicing family law, she is dual-certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in family law and child welfare. She is one of 47 family lawyers in Texas that carries a dual certification in both of these areas. She is a credentialed mediator in all civil, family and CPS matters. Today she serves as managing partner of Balekian Hayes, PLLC, based in Dallas, TX.
