FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 13, 2016
CHICAGO — Founding partner Ken Levinson has been selected to the 2016 Illinois Super Lawyers Top 100, part of Super Lawyers’ annual listing. This marks Levinson’s second appearance on the Top 100 list; he has been listed an Illinois Super Lawyer every year since 2010. No more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers to receive this honor.
Levinson was recognized for his work on behalf of injury survivors and child abuse victims, including a record $43 million jury verdict for a child abuse victim. He has successfully handled hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases. Levinson is also the co-author of the newly released 2015-2016 edition of Litigating Major Automobile Injury and Death Cases, an ongoing series that helps plaintiff’s attorneys build strong cases for their clients. The two-volume set is published by AAJ Press/Thomson Reuters.
Additionally, Partner Jay Stefani and Associate Attorney Brett Manchel were honored as Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Stars. Stefani was previously named to the list in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
