Law Bulletin Publishing Company, through its Leading Lawyers division, conducted an extensive statewide survey of Illinois lawyers asking them: “If you couldn’t take a case in your area of law, to whom would you refer a family member or friend?” Only those lawyers who were most often recommended by their peers in one of 100 areas of law and approved by Leading Lawyers’ 400-member Advisory Board have achieved the distinction of being a Leading Lawyer. Those attorneys designated Emerging Lawyers are those selected who have not yet reached age 40 or have practiced 10 or fewer years.
