Lawyers selected to the Super Lawyers list are nominated by a combination of peers, attorney-led third-party research teams, and informal nominations, and further researched and evaluated based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement such as verdicts/settlements, experience, special licenses/certifications, pro bono and community services to name but a few. Candidates then go through the “blue ribbon review,” at which point they are ranked by top rated attorneys.  Finally, they are grouped based on firm size, and 5% are selected from each state to become Super Lawyers.

Lawyers selected to the Rising Stars list follow the same rigorous process as those in the Super Lawyers nomination process with that stipulation that the attorneys are under the age of 40 or have been practicing for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5% of attorneys in Illinois are selected to this distinction.
