Joliet lawyer recognized for strong performance

A Joliet attorney recently was recognized as one of the 2018 10 best criminal law attorneys for client satisfaction.

The American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys has recognized the exceptional performance of criminal law attorney Cosmo J. Tedone, according to a news release from the AIOCLA.

The American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys is a third-party attorney rating organization that publishes an annual list of the top 10 criminal law attorneys in each state.

Attorneys who are selected to the “10 Best” list must pass AIOCLA’s rigorous selection process, which is based on client or peer nominations, thorough research and AIOCLA’s independent evaluation.

AIOCLA’s annual list was created to be used as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process.

One of the most significant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys’ relationships and reputation among his or her clients, the release said. As clients should be an attorney’s top priority, AIOCLA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of criminal law without sacrificing the service and support they provide.

Selection criteria therefore focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of client satisfaction.

“We congratulate Cosmo J. Tedone on this achievement, and we are honored to have him as a 2018 AIOCLA Member,” the release said.

Tedone previously was the senior associate with Chuck Bretz and Associates, P.C. and has more than 16 years of experience, according to his website.

Tedone can be reached at 815-666-1285. His office is located at 58 N. Chicago St., Suite 405, in Joliet.
