About This Firm

For more than 35 years, Johnson & Bell, Ltd.'s trial attorneys have offered premier defense representation throughout the Midwest and nationally. Founded in 1975, Johnson & Bell made its mark through landmark class-action cases such as the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire and the Bogalusa chemical spill. It's tried nearly 90% of the major catastrophic cases in the Chicago land area, and achieved numerous favorable verdicts for its clients in categories including health care, toxic tort, insurance and business litigation.

While Johnson & Bell's attorneys try among the most cases in Chicago's Cook County, the firm believes many legal difficulties can be avoided through risk-reduction measures and careful compliance with the law. Hence, our attorneys provide regular legal updates notifying clients of legislative and regulatory changes as they happen.

Johnson & Bell continually receives national recognition for its trial and appellate advocacy: American Lawyer's Corporate Counsel Magazine named the firm as one of the Top 100 Law Firms in client satisfaction and Martindale-Hubbell has awarded more than 30 of the firm's shareholders its top mark, an AV-rating. ALFA International, a global legal network, named it 2011 Firm of the Year. These, and countless other accolades, illustrate Johnson & Bell's quest to serve its clients.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
