Mr. Vara, a San Antonio native, has successfully represented clients in cases involving remarkable complexity and that demand his competence, experience, and forthright communication, from probate administration to contested inheritance litigation in the trial and appellate courts.  Martindale-Hubbell honored Mr. Vara by designating him as an AV peer-rated preeminent attorney, a distinction held by less than 5% of all lawyers in the United States, and  awarded only to attorneys who have achieved the highest level of professional excellence and legal ethics.  Mr. Vara has been an attorney since 1985, and has worked with his dedicated team of paralegals, Lynn Broderick and Krystin Miller, since 1993 and 2010, respectively.
