Three other Chicago legal giants are also included. They are: Fred Bartlit of Bartlit, Beck; Tony Valukas of Jenner & Block; and Dan Webb of Winston & Strawn.
The Law Journal writes that the legal trails Tom Demetrio has blazed include his first big case, litigation resulting from American Airlines Flight 191, which crashed onto O’Hare Field in 1979, and the fact that he has represented the families of victims in nearly every major plane crash since.
While the National Law Journal does, indeed, tout Tom’s success in the courtroom, it also lauds Tom for trying to solve social problems, including helping make society safer and the creation of the Chicago Bar Association’s Lawyers Lend-A-Hand mentoring program for Inner City kids. The Journal writes that “It is dedicated to giving kids an alternative to gangs” and from Tom’s perspective “it is more fulfilling than any courtroom victory.
