D&L Attorney Ryan Van Osdol Receives Back-to-Back Honor
DiMonte & Lizak, LLC is proud to announce that Ryan Van Osdol has been named to the 2013 Illinois Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars list as one of the top attorneys in Illinois for 2013. Ryan also received this honor in 2012, making it the second year in a row that he was nominated and recognized by other Illinois attorneys for this prestigious award.
No more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in Illinois are selected to the Rising Stars list. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding attorneys from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Attorneys cannot pay to be listed as a Super Lawyers’ Rising Star. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of attorneys, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area.
Ryan has practiced at DiMonte & Lizak, LLC since September 2008. He focuses his practice on business litigation, construction litigation and various other aspects of commercial litigation. While the majority of his clients are medium-sized local business owners, Ryan has successfully represented a wide range of clients in trial courts, appellate courts, and in alternative dispute resolution proceedings. He completed a 12 day trial this summer, in which he and partner David Arena successfully defended a client against claims of fraud, breach of a merger agreement and piercing the corporate veil. Ryan was recently admitted to the trial bar for the Northern District of Illinois and is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association’s Commercial Banking, Collections and Bankruptcy Committee.
