Published annually, Super Lawyers® is one of the most highly regarded legal ranking publications in the nation, listing only 5% of United States practicing attorneys from more than 70 practice areas every year. Attorneys much be nominated by a third party and undergo a rigorous review of their entire career to obtain a listing. They are examined using “12 indicators of professional achievement and success,” which Super Lawyers® considers to be factors such as experience, honors, awards, verdicts, settlements, community work, and the like. Then, to pass final selection and be included in the published edition of Super Lawyers®, candidates are evaluated before a Blue Ribbon Panel.
Attorney Rakers passed this multi-phase review successfully, as she has every single year since 2016. Her legal prowess has won her clients more than $25 million in settlements and verdicts. Furthermore, she genuinely cares about each and every one of her clients — a passion that began when she was very young. Seeing the difference her grandfather’s work as a renowned Illinois judge made in people’s lives, Attorney Rakers knew she wanted to follow in his footsteps and help people through the civil justice system as well.
