Aronberg Goldgehn is pleased to announce that four attorneys were selected as Illinois ‘Super Lawyers’ for 2012 and five attorneys were designated as ‘Rising Stars’ in Illinois by Super Lawyers magazine.

Super Lawyers is a listing of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The magazine names exceptional attorneys annually in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.  Only five percent of the lawyers in Illinois are nominated by Super Lawyers.  The selections for this esteemed list are made by the research team at Super Lawyers which is a service of Thomson Reuters, Legal Division.  Each year, the research team at Super Lawyers undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check. 

Additionally, several Aronberg Goldgehn attorneys have been recognized as Illinois ‘Rising Stars’ by Super Lawyers Magazine. The ‘Rising Stars’ list showcases outstanding young lawyers in the state, and only 2.5% percent of the lawyers in Illinois are selected for inclusion each year.
