Intelligence. Passion. Success.
Illinois Attorneys to Watch
What It Is
Success at any age is impressive. But to achieve it at an early age is even more of a feat. This, though, is exactly what the young attorneys selected as our 40 Under Forty honorees have done. They are featured on this site, in a special 40 Under Forty publication.
How It’s Done
For the last 21 years, the 40 Under Forty Committee at Law Bulletin Media sifts through piles of nominations to select 40 of the most talented young attorneys practicing in Illinois. On September 24, we will honor 2020’s honorees during a special virtual happy hour (register here). Each honoree will be presented with their award pre-shipped to their home to commemorate the occasion.
This year, the competition was more intense than ever. We received more than 1,500 nominations for attorneys throughout Illinois. Choosing who to include was more challenging than previous editions.
What It Takes
What does it take to earn recognition as one of the best young lawyers in the state? Intelligence, passion, success in the office, a desire to help community and, most importantly, a willingness to work hard at one of the country’s most important professions.
Completing the Package
Putting together this issue is no easy task. We solicited nominations from across the state. We then worked with our nominated attorneys in fine tuning their profiles. This results, we hope, in both an entertaining and educational read.
