Tom Demetrio Named 2011 Chicago Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year
Thomas Demetrio, nationally renowned Chicago personal injury trial lawyer, was named by Best Lawyers in America as Chicago's Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year for 2011, by the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011), is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. Tom has been listed in the publication since its inception in 1987.
Tom received particularly high ratings in The Best Lawyers in America surveys by earning a high level of respect among his peers for his abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Tom on being selected as the ‘Chicago Best Lawyers Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year' for 2011.”
