Polunsky Beitel Green Name Partner Elected Texas Bar Foundation Fellow
Jay Beitel joins exclusive, invitation-only group of top State Bar of Texas lawyers
Each year, only the top one-third of one percent of Texas attorneys are invited to become Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation. Election to the Foundation is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed on a member of the State Bar of Texas. Nominations are based on outstanding contributions to the legal profession and a strong commitment to the community.
Mr. Beitel joins the Texas Bar Foundation with more than 45 years’ experience representing residential mortgage lenders in all aspects of the industry.
Mr. Beitel has been Board Certified in Commercial Real Estate Law and Residential Real Estate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for more than three decades. He and fellow name partner Allan B. Polunsky were among the first 50 attorneys in the state to earn these distinguished certifications.
“We can’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor than Jay,” says Mr. Polunsky. “He is easily recognized as one of Texas’ most knowledgeable and respected attorneys in real estate generally and residential mortgage lending in particular. He brings an unprecedented wealth of knowledge and experience to our firm and our clients.”
In addition to holding the highest AV-Preeminent ranking by Martindale-Hubbell for more than three decades, Mr. Beitel also has been named to the annual Texas Super Lawyers list by Thomson Reuters since 2006 based on nominations from his peer attorneys.
Mr. Beitel is widely known for his work in both state and federal regulatory compliance matters on behalf of some of the country’s leading lending institutions. He also counsels firm clients on residential document preparation issues. A former municipal court judge, Mr. Beitel uses his experiences on both sides of the bench as a lecturer and instructor on the latest issues and trends impacting real estate law.
