Twenty-Five Percent Named "Illinois Super Lawyers" and "Rising Stars"

Freeborn is pleased to announce that 24 of its attorneys have been named "Illinois Super Lawyers" and "Rising Stars" for 2011, in a survey conducted by Law & Politics magazine.

Law & Politics surveyed more than 47,000 Illinois lawyers, representing 70 practice areas, to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource to assist attorneys and consumers in the search for legal counsel.  Attorneys from firms of all sizes were considered, as well as those in private practice, prosecutors, in-house counsel and public service lawyers.
