Illinois Rising Star Award

Edward Johnson Super Lawyer Recognition

Criminal defense attorney Edward Johnson III has received the Illinois Rising Star Award from Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Edward Johnson represents defendants charged with offenses such as homicide, drug possession, DUI, juvenile crimes, gun crimes, and more.

The Chicagoland attorney, who is among only 2.5 percent of lawyers statewide receiving this award, is dedicated to expanding his knowledge of his area of practice and looks forward to continuing to raise the bar and professional activities to grow his experience.

“I’m honored to be recognized,” Johnson said. “However, this success would not be possible without the support of every member of my firm. From our skilled legal writers to our investigators and clerks, I know we will continue our success as a team, and I can’t wait to see what next year brings.”

Super Lawyers recognizes attorneys on a local basis for their excellence of work and dedication to clients. This recognition is based on a peer nomination supported by independent research, as well as peer evaluation by other Super Lawyer nominees.

The Rising Star recognition is given to lawyers under age 40 with exceptional success and dedication to their clients and that they meet eligibility requirements in a two-tier approval process. Johnson’s recognition as one of the states top up-and-coming attorneys also will be featured in the February 2016 editions of Chicago Magazine and Illinois Super Lawyers Magazine.
