In 2014, Mr. Streett was named one of only six "Appellate MVPs" nationwide by Law360, which had previously recognized him in 2011 as one of the top five appellate "Rising Stars" under age 40. That publication stated that Mr. Streett's “proclivity for courtroom presentation and a broad knowledge of constitutional law have helped [him] score victories in complex and high-stakes cases for clients in the energy, financial services, telecommunications and other industries." In 2021, Mr. Streett was honored as the "Lawyer of the Year" for Appellate Practice in Houston by Best Lawyers magazine.
