Published quarterly, Leading Lawyers Magazine is a division of the Law Bulletin Publishing Company that has served the legal and business communities of the Chicago area since 1854. Starting in Illinois and eventually expanding worldwide,Leading Lawyers provides assistance with selecting highly-qualified attorneys.
When compiling the list of Leading Lawyers, the publisher surveyed lawyers, asking them which of their peers they would recommend to family members or friends if they could not take a case within their area of law or geographic region. To maintain the quality and credibility of the survey, lawyers were not allowed to nominate themselves or anyone at their own law firm. Based upon these nominations and approval by theLeading Lawyers Advisory Board, only the top lawyers are nominated and eligible for membership. Less than five percent of all lawyers licensed in Michigan have received the distinction of being a Leading Lawyer.
