The largest law firms in Dallas will be presented their annual report cards for diversity on Tuesday.

The Dallas Diversity Task Force’s 2013 report shows that not only is diversity not improving at the city’s biggest firms, it is getting worse.
None of the 19 largest firms meet even minimum standards for recruiting, hiring, promoting and retaining minority lawyers, according to the study, which is conducted annually by the African-American, Hispanic and Asian bar associations of Dallas.
“Clearly, the results are not good,” said Rosa Orenstein, a partner at Sullivan & Holston and chairwoman of the task force. “I know the wheels of justice turn slowly, but diversity in Dallas is improving at a glacial pace. In fact, the situation has become regressive.
“We have to try to figure out what is going on and how to fix it.”
