Texas Super Lawyers magazine names Heath Hyde a ‘Rising Star’

E-mail Print PDF
Sulphur Springs native Heath Hyde has been named a “Rising Star” by Texas Super Lawyers, a publication of Texas Monthly magazine. Each year the magazine accepts nominations for top attorneys who are 40 years old or younger or who have been in practice 10 years or less. The magazine then evaulates each candidate and utilizes a peer review to make the final decision.

“It was a real big honor to be selected by my peers,” Hyde said Wednesday.

The 1989 Sulphur Springs High School graduate received his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and earned his juris doctor  degree from Texas Wesleyan University’s law school in Forth Worth.

When asked if attending a small law school was an advantage, Hyde said, “It worked out great for me. I was able to work for attorneys and the Dallas district attorney’s office. I’m still, to this day, working with some of the attorneys I worked with while in law school.”

Although Hyde was a prosecutor early in his career, on January 1, 2007, he opened a criminal defense practice, taking both district and federal cases from all over North Texas. He still maintains an office in Dallas, where he practices with former United States attorneys, along with his former colleagues from the Dallas district attorney’s office.

“I changed horses, so to speak, in doing something new,” Hyde said. “I stay pretty busy and travel quite a bit.”

Heath’s bio included in the magazine said, “... After 10 years of experience and serving as Deputy Chief Prosecutor, he entered private practice. With over 200 jury trials and the handling of 4,000 various felony cases, Hyde has an array of experience ranging from capital murders, sexual assaults, and drug cases to DWI, with extensive experience in the area of domestic violence.”

Hyde’s family has called Hopkins County home for five generations. He  currenly lives with his wife, Kristi, and Hayden Olivia, their 4-week-old daughter, on land that has been in his family since before 1900. His sister is Hopkins County Attorney Dusty Hyde Rabe.
