CHICAGO - Sept. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney Michael P. Schmiege has been given the honor of being included in the 2014 Illinois Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list, which recognizes attorneys age 40 and under within the state of Illinois who have demonstrated excellence within their legal careers. Being included in this list is a significant accomplishment, as this form of recognition is extended to no more than 2.5% of lawyers in each state, according to Super Lawyers®. This marks the fourth time that Attorney Schmiege will be named on the Rising Stars℠ list, as he was previously selected for inclusion for the years of 2010, 2012 and 2013. Attorney Schmiege is the founding and managing partner of the Law Office of Michael P. Schmiege, PC.

The 2014 list of Rising Stars℠ for the state of Illinois will be published in February 2014 in the Illinois Super Lawyers® Magazine and Chicago magazine. In addition to being 40 or under, attorneys must also have no more than 10 years of experience practicing law in order to be considered for this list, according to Super Lawyers®. In order to identify the pool of candidates, Super Lawyers® sends out a general survey that asks other attorneys to nominate outstanding lawyers who meet the age and experience requirements for Rising Stars℠. The nominator must have personally witnessed the nominee’s legal abilities, such as through firsthand observation in the courtroom.

The next stage of evaluation process involves a review by an attorney-led Super Lawyers® research team, which evaluates the candidates’ credentials, assigns the lawyers points using pre-established criteria, and ensures that the candidates are properly licensed and not subject to disciplinary action. The attorneys with the highest number of points make it onto the final list (with considering being given to factors such as firm size and practice area).

By being named on the Rising Stars℠ list for the fourth time in just five years, Attorney Schmiege has proven time and again that he is a leading attorney within the state of Illinois. In addition to being admitted to practice law in Illinois state courts, Mr. Schmiege has also been admitted to practice in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and in various federal courts (the Northern District of Illinois, the Southern District of Ohio and the Southern District of Texas). The attorney received his law degree from John Marshall Law School.
