Matthew L. Willens and David A. Baez, both attorneys from the Chicago personal injury law firm Willens Law Offices, were recently selected by Thomson Reuters for the 2018 Edition of Super Lawyers due to their outstanding achievements and continued excellence in the field of personal injury law. This is Willens’ sixth Super Lawyers award and Baez’s second Super Lawyers Rising Stars award.
Annually compiled by Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers is a rating system for exceptional attorneys in more than 70 practice areas who have obtained a high degree of both professional achievement and peer recognition. The arduous selection process for Super Lawyers includes numerous steps - peer nominations through a survey of lawyers across the state, an impartial research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews according to practice area. To qualify for the Rising Stars list, an individual must either be 40 years or below or have been practicing law for ten years or less. No more than five percent of lawyers in one state may be selected as Super Lawyers, while no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in a state are named Rising Stars.
Both the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are comprised of outstanding lawyers, and may be used as reliable resources for referring lawyers, as well as individuals and businesses in need of quality legal representation. Legal professionals on these lists have obtained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have acquired some degree of accomplishment in the industry.
