The Leading Lawyers resource guides are intended for identifying the most respected and experienced lawyers. Currently covering Illinois, Michigan and Missouri, Leading Lawyers determines the top attorneys through surveys that ask lawyers which of their peers they would recommend to a family member or friend if they could not take a case within their area of law or geographic region. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves or anyone at their own law firm, and lawyers cannot buy their way onto the lists. Fewer than 5 percent of all lawyers licensed in each state have received the distinction of Leading Lawyer. Leading Lawyers is a division of Law Bulletin Media, which also publishes the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin and Chicago Lawyer magazine.
