13 Corboy & Demetrio Lawyers Honored as 2017 Leading Lawyers,  1 Named to Emerging Lawyers List

Chicago (August 7, 2017) — Thirteen Corboy & Demetrio lawyers have been selected by the Illinois legal community in 2017 as Leading Lawyers. The designation of being a Leading Lawyer is limited to the top 5 percent of lawyers licensed to practice in Illinois.

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.

In building its Leading Lawyers list, Law Bulletin Media 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, Andrew P. Stevens joined the list of Emerging Lawyers, which encompasses less than 2 percent 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 Media 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.

“For 14 years, Corboy & Demetrio lawyers have appeared at the top of the list of Leading Lawyers. Corboy & Demetrio is not only one of the finest, most reputable, most experienced and most successful law firms in Illinois, indeed they are one of the most reputable, most successful and most respected in the country,” said Scott Anderson, Founder of Leading Lawyers and Publisher of Leading Lawyers Magazine. “When lawyers in California, Texas, New York and Florida are asked what personal injury plaintiffs firm they would recommend in Illinois, Corboy & Demetrio will be one of three or the only firm they will recommend. Corboy & Demetrio is a powerhouse of trial lawyers — and has been a powerhouse for more than 50 years.”
