ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Reno & Zahm partner Jan Ohlander has been named to the Top 10 Downstate Consumer Lawyers in Illinois by Leading Lawyers magazine. This is the third year in a row that Ohlander has received this distinction. Ohlander has consistently been named to the Top 50 Leading Downstate Lawyers and Top 100 Statewide Leading Lawyers list since Leading Lawyers’ inception in 2003. Ohlander, an original Leading Lawyer, has routinely been one of the most often recommended lawyers in the state.
With more than 33 years of experience, Ohlander concentrates his practice in business and civil trial, having counseled clients in a variety of cases including commercial, contract, employment, injury, negligence, and construction.
Scott Anderson, publisher of Leading Lawyers Magazine stated, “In addition to simply being a wonderful person, I know from conversations with Jan’s peers across the state, that he is a go-to lawyer when his peers need help in Northern Illinois. His reputation and experience extend far beyond the Rock River region and he is thought of as a classic trial lawyer, able to take a brief of nearly any area of law, and aggressively prosecute or defend it. Few lawyers have his experience and level of peer respect.”
Leading Lawyers is a division of the 159-year old Law Bulletin Publishing Company. More than 72,000 lawyers are surveyed and vetted through a rigorous four phase process to determine leading lawyers in Illinois. Lawyers cannot be recommended by lawyers in their own law firm nor can they self nominate. The distinction of being a Leading Lawyer has been earned by fewer than five percent of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois.
