The Collins Law Firm would like to congratulate founder and partner, Shawn Collins, for being nominated for a Lifetime Achievement honor as one of America’s Top 100 Attorneys for Illinois. Less than one-half percent of attorneys in the United States will receive this prestigious award. Shawn will join an elite list of nationally recognized lawyers from around the country, which includes many current and former presidents of major bar associations and attorney groups, and some of the best lawyers in Illinois. Only 100 attorneys in a state can hold the lifetime achievement award, and they are selected through a rigorous process.
Candidates for membership as one of America’s Top 100 Attorneys are initially nominated by elite peers or identified through third-party research. Nominees must then pass through a multi-phase screening process that includes more third party research and complex analysis that includes an attorney’s lifetime legal achievements, professional experience, case results and verdicts, peer reputation, client satisfaction, other honors and community impact, before being selected.
Shawn is honored to be included among the elite lawyers who have accepted a lifetime Achievement honor as one of America’s Top 100 Attorneys. As Shawn says: “My selection as a Top 100 Attorney is a great honor, of course, but one that must be shared with my wife and daughters, law partners, associates, and staff, as nothing I have accomplished as a lawyer would have been possible without their support and professionalism.”
An outstanding trial attorney, Shawn has extensive experience in high stakes litigation in environmental, toxic tort, personal injury, and commercial law. Many of his cases are against some of the biggest corporations in the world, and he thrives on “David versus Goliath” legal battles and never backs down from a fight. As a result, Mr. Collins and his law firm have recovered in excess of $415 million for his clients in their practice.
