What Is Leading Lawyers?
Receiving recognition as a Leading Lawyer or Emerging Lawyer is a rare honor. Only 5 percent of licensed attorneys have ever been named a Leading Lawyer and even fewer, only 2 percent, have received recognition as an Emerging Lawyer.
Leading Lawyers are considered the cream of the crop in their practice area. Leading Lawyers are named for each practice area in cities and counties nationwide. Walton Telken’s Leading Lawyers and Emerging Lawyers recipients have been or will be featured in several publications after receiving the honor, including Leading Lawyers Magazine, Emerging Lawyers Magazine, Illinois Business Journal and Belleville News-Democrat.
Leading Lawyers and Emerging Lawyers recipients are voted on by their peers, which is what really makes receiving the award so special. This year, Troy Walton and Stephen Telken were named Leading Lawyers. Micah Summers was named an Emerging Lawyer. To be named an Emerging Lawyer, an attorney must be 40 years old or younger.
