Julio Costa and Anthony Ivone just announced their selection to be members of the 2018 National Trial Lawyers “Top 40 under 40.” This is an exciting yet humbling bit of news for us at Costa Ivone, LLC. The Top 40 under 40 is a professional organization composed of the top trial lawyers under the age of 40 from around the United States. We were selected due to our growing reputation for excellence in client advocacy and high standards in legal practice.
This sounds a little heady, but rather than celebrate, we feel the selection reinforces the seriousness of our obligations to our clients. In Anthony’s case, he has successfully litigated cases involving all types of work-related injuries as well as complex, catastrophic third-party personal injury and work injury cross-over cases. Julio has recovered over $20 million dollars for his injured clients in the last five years alone. His recoveries include complex work-injuries including paralysis, quadriplegia, serious brain and spine injuries and work-related death cases.
We seem to be in good company. Membership into The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40 is by invitation only. The National Trial Lawyers extends membership only to trial lawyers practicing civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense law. Members represent the most qualified attorneys from each state who demonstrate superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature and public profile measured by objective and uniformly applied standards in compliance with state bar and national Rule 4-7.
Our firm has a reputation of being one of the most effective and client-oriented personal injury and worker’s compensation law firms in Chicago. This honor aligns with our strong record of success in advocating for injured workers as well as those who are entitled to compensation resulting from the negligence of others. We will take this selection to the “Top 40 under 40” as a further call for thoroughness and diligence in representing people who are entitled to benefits.
