Thirteen Corboy & Demetrio Attorneys Named IL Leading LawyersMatthew Jenkins Named to Inaugural Emerging Lawyers List
July 20, 2015
Thirteen Corboy & Demetrio lawyers have been selected by the Illinois legal community in 2015 as Leading Lawyers. That designation includes the top 5% of Illinois lawyers in private practice as named by their peers in statewide surveys.
With its 13 Leading Lawyers, Corboy & Demetrio boasts a total greater than any other Illinois plaintiff’s personal injury law firm. In fact, seven Corboy & Demetrio lawyers have continuously retained their prestigious status since 2003, when Leading Lawyers began.
Corboy & Demetrio Founder Thomas A. Demetrio was selected as one of the Top Ten Personal Injury Lawyers in Illinois by Leading Lawyers, ranking second. Mr. Demetrio was also selected as one of the Top Ten Leading Lawyers in all practice areas in the entire state, ranking third, and as one of the Top Ten Consumer Lawyers in the state, ranking second.
In building its Leading Lawyers list, Law Bulletin Publishing Company conducted extensive statewide surveys asking: “If you couldn’t take a case in your area of law, to whom would you refer a family member or friend?” Lawyers could not nominate themselves or any lawyers at their own firm. All recommendations must be approved by the Leading Lawyers Advisory Board, eliminating the possibility of lawyers being selected through a popularity contest.
Additionally, Matthew T. Jenkins joined the inaugural list of Emerging Lawyers, which encompasses less than 2% of Illinois registered attorneys. Emerging Lawyers must be age 40 or younger unless they have practiced law for 10 or fewer years.
In creating its Emerging Lawyers designation, Law Bulletin Publishing Company surveyed each Illinois Leading Lawyer, asking for the names of the state’s top up-and-coming talent who will determine the future of the legal profession.
“Corboy & Demetrio’s rich history as a personal injury law firm that consistently delivers results has long been apparent in our surveys,” said Scott Anderson, director of Leading Lawyers and publisher of Leading Lawyers Magazine. “Our honors reveal how highly the legal profession regards Corboy & Demetrio as seasoned leaders who continue to develop new, young talent.”
Corboy & Demetrio’s Leading Lawyers include: David R. Barry, Jr., Robert J. Bingle, Philip Harnett Corboy, Jr., Michael K. Demetrio, Thomas A. Demetrio, William T. Gibbs, Daniel S. Kirschner, Michelle M. Kohut, Kenneth T. Lumb, Francis Patrick Murphy, Susan J. Schwartz, René A. Torrado, Jr. and Edward G. Willer.
