Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 10, 2016 -- An independent research study done by various esteemed law schools ranked the Law Office of Kenneth C. Chessick, MD, the ninth firm out of 1,317 law firms in the entire State of Illinois between 2000 and 2010 that do medical malpractice litigation. Its 1st Tier firm ranking is the top 5% of Active Firms based on amount recovered. Only 22 firms made the 1st Tier.
The Law Office of Kenneth C. Chessick, MD, had the second highest success rate at 57%, the fifth highest number of successful cases per year, and was the only Medical Doctor/Lawyer in the elite 5%. This ranking is even more commendable because 40% of the cases the law firm litigated were outside Cook County, where verdicts and settlements are generally more difficult to achieve.
“This report is objective confirmation of our passion, pride, and perseverance. We achieved this success, despite being the smallest law firm in the elite 5%, which has allowed us to give our clients very personal attention,” shared Dr. Chessick.
Dr. Chessick has been a principal partner of the Law Office of Kenneth C. Chessick, M.D. for over 30 years. Since 2013, he has been Of Counsel to the esteemed Clifford Law Offices, which ranked #2 out of 1,317 in the same independent research study.
