Fort Worth law firm closes

One of Fort Worth’s premier and largest law firms has closed.

Shannon Gracey Ratliff & Miller LLP, Tarrant County’s third largest law firm, was founded in 1938 and had major clients locally, statewide and nationally.

A statement on the firm’s website said: “To our valued clients, we appreciate the years you have allowed us to serve you. It has truly been our pleasure.”

In December, Richard A. Lowe, then managing partner at the 80-year-old firm, said the current partners are “considering a variety of options and business alternatives with the goal of continuing to represent our clients thoroughly and effectively.”

In a statement, Lowe said some partners have started the process of retiring and other attorneys with the firm have left for other opportunities.

Shannon Gracey had locations across the state in Dallas, Austin, Houston, Arlington and a location in Rhome.

Several attorneys recently left last year to form a new law firm, Bonds Ellis Eppich Schafer Jones LLP in Fort Worth on Nov. 1. Several other attorneys, including Lisa Jamieson, have left to join Pope, Hardwicke, Christie, Schell, Kelly & Ray of Fort Worth.
