Attorney Alex Fawell is selected to the Illinois Rising Stars list for 2019. Alex is a managing partner at Fawell & Fawell who represents clients in family and criminal law matters.
Earning this honor only four years into his legal career is a significant achievement, and further signifies the high level of excellence Alex brings to his clients every day.
Overview of the nomination process
Attorneys of merit are anonymously nominated for selection to the Super Lawyers/Rising Stars list each year. Every nominee is carefully researched by third parties and reviewed by their peers. They must also be approved by a panel of credentialed attorneys.
Attorneys selected for the Rising Stars list comprise less than 2.5 percent of attorneys in Illinois. In addition to this rigorous selection process, nominees for the Rising Stars list must have been in practice for less than ten years. These attorneys show significant achievement early on in their legal career and show considerable promise for the future.
