All three Keating Law Offices attorneys have been honored by Super Lawyers Magazine for 2021. Keating Law Offices founding attorney Michael S. Keating has been rated a Super Lawyer, and Attorneys Thomas Reuland and Catelyn Viggiano have been named "Rising Stars" by Super Lawyers Magazine.
Only 2.5% of Illinois attorneys receive the “Rising Stars” honor. To be eligible for the "Rising Star" designation, the attorney must be under a certain age or within the first decade of their career. The selections for Super Lawyers are even more selective with only 5% of all attorneys — of any age or number of years practicing — recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine each year.
In order to become part of this prestigious list, all attorneys go through the Rising Stars selection process. Super Lawyers Magazine invites Illinois lawyers once a year to nominate the top attorneys they have personally observed in action, while an attorney-led research team searches for lawyers who have a high degree of professional competence.
Super Lawyers research team then evaluates each candidate based on the following 12 indicators:
- Verdicts and settlements
- Representative clients
- Honors and awards
- Special licenses and certifications
- Position within the law firm
- Bar and or other professional activity
- Pro bono and community service as a lawyer
- Scholarly lectures and writings
- Education and employment background
- Other outstanding achievements
Based on these 12 indicators and final selection by the Super Lawyers team, the Keating Law attorneys were selected. This is the second time a well-respected authority has honored all three Keating Law attorneys. Recently, Leading Lawyers Magazine honored Michael Keating as a Leading Lawyer and Thomas Reuland and Catelyn Viggiano as Emerging Lawyers.
