September 20, 2011 - A press release about the Work Comp Guys

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 20, 2011

 

Five lawyers from the workers' compensation law firm Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda (http://www.workcompguys.com) were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 in the field of Workers' Compensation Law – Claimants. (Copyright 2011 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.). The lawyers selected from Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda are as follows: Peter D. Corti, Richard E. Aleksy, John J. Castaneda, Mark A. DePaolo, and Vitas J. Mockaitis.

 

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

 

It is important to note that the lawyers listed in Best Lawyers have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. They are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers. The subspecialties listed after their names are based on information from a variety of sources.

 

Since many state bar associations have a board certification process and rules governing legal specialties, please be aware that the practice areas and subspecialties listed in our publications are based on information from the general legal community and that a listed lawyer may or may not be board certified in a specialty or subspecialty. Clients are urged to check a lawyer's firm web page to determine whether he or she is board certified in the specialty or subspecialty.

July 27, 2010 - A press release about Richard E. Aleksy

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 27, 2010


 

Chicago workers' compensation lawyer Richard E. Aleksy, a partner of the law office of Corti, Aleksy and Castaneda (http://www.workcompguys.com), has been appointed by Illinois Governor Pat Quinn to be one of only twelve people on the Illinois Workers' Compensation Advisory Board, effective immediately. The duties of the Advisory Board, according to Governor Quinn’s July 20, 2011 press release, include making recommendations on the appointments of arbitrators, as well as assisting the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission in “formulating policies, setting priorities, and developing administrative goals.”

 

Furthermore, the Illinois Workers' Compensation Advisory Board “consists of 12 members appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. Members are unpaid, but may have expenses reimbursed. Six board members represent employees, and six represent employers; the structure is designed to balance the concerns of businesses, while continuing critical protections for workers.”

 

In effect, Richard Aleksy is one of only six individuals in the entire state of Illinois who have been chosen to represent the interests of injured workers on the Workers' Compensation Advisory Board. “It’s an honor that the Governor chose to include me in this prestigious group,” stated Mr. Aleksy. This coincides with Illinois House Bill 1698 that Governor Quinn signed in June 2011, which made several monumental changes to the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act. Governor Quinn commented on the qualifications of the twelve Advisory Board members as a whole, saying, “Each of these appointees brings the knowledge and experience to support us in reforming Illinois’ workers’ compensation system.” Richard Aleksy certainly brings Illinois workers' compensation knowledge and experience, as he has 35 years of experience in handling Illinois workers' compensation claims, representing injured workers with great success before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, Circuit Courts, the Appellate Court, and the Supreme Court of Illinois.

 

Mr. Aleksy is a partner of the Chicago law firm of Corti, Aleksy and Castaneda, whose mission is “Standing Up for the Injured Worker” © 1990. The partners alone – Peter D. Corti, Richard E. Aleksy and John J. Castaneda – have 99 years of experience in handling Illinois workers' compensation claims. Richard E. Aleksy has successfully represented injured workers in Illinois workers' compensation claims for 35 years, and now, with Governor Pat Quinn’s appointment of Mr. Aleksy to the Advisory Board, Mr. Aleksy continues his tireless efforts to fight for the rights of injured workers in Illinois. You can learn more about Richard E. Aleksy and the Chicago law firm of Corti, Aleksy and Castaneda at http://www.workcompguys.com.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 21, 2010


 

For the first time ever, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® have teamed up to provide a rankings system for the “Best Law Firms” in the U.S. The law firm of Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda is one of only five law firms for workers compensation claimants that are ranked in Tier 1 for the Chicago metropolitan area in Illinois.

 

The firm’s profile that has now been created, which displays this ranking, can be viewed at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/firmprofile.aspx?firm_id=4197. In addition, the firm’s website, http://workcompguys.com, now proudly displays this honor.

 

“After 39 years of representing injured workers as a Chicago workers compensation lawyer, I am proud to be one of the co-founders of a firm that is recognized at the top tier, Tier 1, of a ‘Best Law Firms’ ranking system for workers compensation claimants in Chicago,” said attorney Peter D. Corti, Managing Partner of Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda. Peter D. Corti, along with founding partners Richard E. Aleksy, John J. Castaneda, and the rest of his legal staff, have a combined experience of 175 years.

A common question is, “How was this ranking determined?” As described at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/methodology.aspx, “Using a scale of 1 (weakest) to 5 (strongest), clients voted on expertise, responsiveness…civility, and whether they would refer another client to a firm. Lawyers voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity…and whether they would refer a matter to a firm and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor.”

 

Another common question is, “Who were the judges, or those who submitted these ratings?” Here is a breakdown of the numbers: Over 1800 firms participated in the marketing-officer and recruiting-officer surveys; over 9,500 clients provided firm practice-area evaluations; over 6,000 clients provided comments about law firm practice areas and individual lawyers; and nearly 9,000 lawyers provided firm practice-area evaluations.

 

There are hundreds of workers compensation lawyers in Illinois. Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda is one of the highest ranked firms (Tier 1) in the metropolitan Chicago area.
