All 14 Attorneys at Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. Recognized in 2019 Edition of Super Lawyers Magazine

Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. has cultivated a reputation as an elite trial practice, and has been fortunate to secure a number of record-setting verdicts and settlements, more than $4 billion in compensation for clients, and the trust of numerous individuals and families across the state of Illinois. None of these achievements would be possible without our talented and truly determined attorneys, all of whom are national caliber litigators. The latest edition of Illinois Super Lawyers proves just that.

In this year’s edition of Super Lawyers, a leading industry attorney rating publication that compiles an annual, peer-reviewed list of the most accomplished attorneys in each state, every attorney at Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. made the final cut – either as part of the list of Illinois Super Lawyers or the Illinois Super Lawyers list of Rising Stars!

  • Super Lawyers ListSuper Lawyers is regarded as one of the legal industry’s most desired accolades, and is a direct reflection of the esteem and respect selected attorneys have earned among their peers and colleagues. Through the use of a patented selection process and peer-review evaluations from fellow leading lawyers, Super Lawyers compiles its annual lists by state. It also relies on independent research into a dozen indicators of professional achievement and demonstrated success, including factors such as notable results, special certifications, professional and community involvement, scholarly lecture / writing contributions, and more. No more than 5% of practicing attorneys in the country make the final Super Lawyers list.
  • List of Rising Stars – In addition to its Super Lawyers list, the publication also curates annual listings for its Super Lawyers Rising Stars, which is reserved for attorneys who are 40 years of age or younger, or who have been practicing law for 10 years or less. Super Lawyers relies on the same rigorous selection process when vetting candidates for its Rising Stars list, which means those who make the final list are carefully assessed on their achievements and professionalism, and meticulously evaluated by their peers. Those named to the Super Lawyers list of Rising Stars comprise just 2.5% of all practicing U.S. lawyers.

Selection to the prestigious Super Lawyers publication is a significant achievement, and one few lawyers ever achieve in their careers. Many firms across the country consider themselves lucky to have even one recognized lawyer, let alone 14 attorneys who comprise a firm’s entire team.
