3 Woodruff Johnson Evans & Haugen Attorneys Named 2019 Super Lawyers® & Rising Stars℠

Vickie Douglas

At Woodruff Johnson & Evans, our Chicago personal injury attorneys are known throughout Illinois and across the state’s borders for our dedication to excellence and client satisfaction. Past clients, legal peers, and professional organizations alike all regularly provide our team high praise and honors for our work. It is our honor to be able to announce that three of our team members have once again been recognized.

Our three attorneys who were honored by Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars℠ are:

  • Attorney Steven M. Sandler was recognized as a 2019 Illinois Super Lawyers® member for his work as a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney. This recognition is actually the seventh consecutive year he has earned this title, first being granted it in 2013.
  • Partner-Attorney Dexter J. Evans was recognized as a 2019 Illinois Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ member for his work as a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney. He was also chosen as a Rising Stars℠ member in 2016, 2017, and 2018, marking this as the fourth consecutive year for the title.
  • Attorney Russell Haugen was recognized as a 2019 Rising Stars℠ member for his work as a workers’ compensation attorney for claimants. This is the first year he has earned this title, but we look forward to him earning it many more times in the years to come with us.

No more than 5% of lawyers in a given state or region can be named to Super Lawyers® each year due to the organization’s strict selection process. No more than 2.5% of lawyers in a state can be selected as Rising Stars℠, who must either be 40 years old or younger, or have been in practice for 10 or fewer years. Super Lawyers® reviews attorneys from across the country by utilizing a patented multiphase selection process which considers the results of independent research, peer nominations and reviews, and many other factors.
