Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
For the first time ever, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® have teamed up to provide a rankings system for the “Best Law Firms” in the U.S. The law firm of Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda is one of only five law firms for workers compensation claimants that are ranked in Tier 1 for the Chicago metropolitan area in Illinois.
The firm’s profile that has now been created, which displays this ranking, can be viewed at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/firmprofile.aspx?firm_id=4197. In addition, the firm’s website, http://workcompguys.com, now proudly displays this honor.
“After 39 years of representing injured workers as a Chicago workers compensation lawyer, I am proud to be one of the co-founders of a firm that is recognized at the top tier, Tier 1, of a ‘Best Law Firms’ ranking system for workers compensation claimants in Chicago,” said attorney Peter D. Corti, Managing Partner of Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda. Peter D. Corti, along with founding partners Richard E. Aleksy, John J. Castaneda, and the rest of his legal staff, have a combined experience of 175 years. They are a highly experienced team of workers compensation lawyers in Chicago who work tirelessly to stand up for workers who are injured on the job. For more information about the firm, there are two videos, found in the following links:
A common question is, “How was this ranking determined?” As described at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/methodology.aspx, “Using a scale of 1 (weakest) to 5 (strongest), clients voted on expertise, responsiveness…civility, and whether they would refer another client to a firm. Lawyers voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity…and whether they would refer a matter to a firm and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor.”
Another common question is, “Who were the judges, or those who submitted these ratings?” Here is a breakdown of the numbers: Over 1800 firms participated in the marketing-officer and recruiting-officer surveys; over 9,500 clients provided firm practice-area evaluations; over 6,000 clients provided comments about law firm practice areas and individual lawyers; and nearly 9,000 lawyers provided firm practice-area evaluations.
There are hundreds of workers compensation lawyers in Illinois. Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda is one of the highest ranked firms (Tier 1) in the metropolitan Chicago area.
Best Lawyers® is the leading lawyer referral guide, based entirely on peer review. U.S. News & World Report is a publication of U.S. News Media Group, the nation's leading source of rankings and service journalism.
