FORT WORTH, TX—Anna Summersett, partner of the Fort Worth law firm Varghese Summersett, was recognized Thursday night for being a finalist in Fort Worth Inc.’s Entrepreneur of Excellence Awards.
Summersett, who was nominated in the Professional Services category, was among 32 finalists and winners celebrated during a banquet at the Cendera Center in Fort Worth. Her law partner and now husband, Benson Varghese, was a 2017 EOE finalist.
At age 33, Summersett’s accomplishments extend far beyond her years. After receiving her law degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M Law School) she served as a prosecutor for the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office and the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office. While serving as a prosecutor in Fort Worth, Summersett became one of the youngest Texas attorneys to become Board Certified in Criminal Law, a distinction held by less than 1 percent of all Texas attorneys.
