For thirteen years, the 40 Under Forty Committee at Law Bulletin Publishing Company sifts through over hundreds of nomination forms to select 40 of the most talented young attorneys working in Illinois. This publication is the result of this work.
What does it take to earn recognition as one of the best young lawyers in the state? Intelligence, passion, success in the office, a desire to help community, and, most importantly, a willingness to work hard at one of the country’s most important professions.
Many of the names listed on the past honoree pages are now on their firm’s management committee, local and federal judges and most have assumed leadership roles in their practice area.
Putting together this issue is no easy task. We solicited nominations from across the state. This year, it seemed the competition was more intense than ever. We received more than 1250 nominations from Chicago to Springfield and from around the globe for attorneys throughout Illinois.
We then worked with our nominated attorneys in fine tuning their profiles. The results, we hope, offer both an entertaining and educational read.
