Selection of Leading Attorneys
Leading American Attorneys were identified by American Research
Corporation -- but selected by their peers. Eligibility cannot be
purchased. It is based strictly on peer selection.
The selection of Leading Attorneys is based on the premise that
attorneys know attorneys best. The research group used the
three-step process described below to identify Illinois' most
respected legal counsel as selected by their peers.
Step One: Market Research
Using a wide variety of established sources of information about
attorneys, the market research staff generated lists of prominent
attorneys throughout Illinois in each area of law. They asked
these prominent attorneys to identify other outstanding Illinois
attorneys. This market research set the stage for the next
research phase, a survey of Illinois Bar members that resulted in
a list of peer-nominated attorneys.
Step Two: Attorney Nomination Survey
Using both direct mail and telephone survey methods, they first
surveyed each of the identified prominent attorneys and followed
that with a survey of thousands of members of the Illinois Bar.
Each was asked: "If you had a friend or relative who needed an
attorney with expertise in a specific area of law with which you
could not assist, to whom in Illinois would you refer him or
her?" Attorneys responded by providing names of those attorneys
to whom they do or would make referrals. These independent
recommendations were considered nominations, and only those
receiving multiple nominations in a specific practice area were
considered for selection as Leading Illinois Attorneys.
Step Three: Verification
Information about this peer-nominated group of attorneys was
verified by contacting the nominated attorney and/or his or her
firm directly. They also verified that all peer-nominated
attorneys were currently licensed to practice in Illinois and in
good standing with the Illinois Supreme Court's Attorney
This three-step process resulted in a list of fewer than 6
percent of Illinois attorneys covering the breadth of practice
I'm proud to have been so selected by my peers.
