The law firm of Mathis, Marifian & Richter, Ltd. (MM&R), is proud to announce that shareholder Chad J. Richter has been recognized by Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America for his success in Commercial Litigation & Trust and Estates Litigation.


To be considered for recognition, lawyers must be nominated, voted upon, analyzed and eligible. Once a lawyer is nominated, they are placed on a ballot alongside lawyers in their respective practice areas and geographic regions. Lawyers in the Best Lawyer network are then asked the question, “If you were unable to take care of a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?”


Lawyers who have been in private practice for five to nine years and have displayed outstanding professional excellence are recognized as Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America. While lawyers with more than nine years in private practice are recognized as Best Lawyers.


Chad concentrates his practice in the areas of business law, trusts and estates, probate litigation, real estate law, commercial law, and civil litigation. He serves a variety of different individual and corporate clients and devotes his time equally between litigation and transactional work. As the ex-officio chair and member of the Illinois State Bar Association Business and Securities law Section Council, Chad stays current in new developments of Illinois business law and has published several articles concerning these developments.
