Robert Kreisman has been named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in Illinois for 2013. No more than 5 percent of the attorneys in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Kreisman has consistently been named as a Super Lawyer.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice areas.
Super Lawyers magazine features the list and profiles of selected attorneys and is distributed to attorneys and the general public in the state or region and the ABA-accredited law school libraries. Super Lawyers is also published as a special section in leading city and regional magazines across the country. The Super Lawyers list was first published in 1991 and by 2009 the rating service was expanded nationwide.
Bar associations and courts across the country have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers selection process. Most recently, the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld the findings of a Special Master assigned by the court to, among other things, examine the details of the process. In his July 2008 report, the Special Master lauded the lawyer-rating process, stating:
“[The Super Lawyers selection process] is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field.
“Suffice to say, the selection procedures employed by [Super Lawyers] are very sophisticated, comprehensive and complex.
“It is absolutely clear from this record that [Super Lawyers does] not permit a lawyer to buy one’s way onto the list, nor is there any requirement for the purchase of any product for inclusion in the lists or any quid pro quo of any kind or nature associated with the evaluation and listing of an attorney or in the subsequent advertising of one’s inclusion in the lists.”
Kreisman Law Offices has handled Illinois personal injury law and Cook County medical malpractice cases for over 36 years in the Chicago area, including Rosemont, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, and Des Plaines, Ill.
