Chicago-based Tax Lawyer Steven A. Felsenthal selected as #2 Leading Personal Tax Attorney in Illinois by Leading Lawyers Magazine

CHICAGO, IL (September 2019) – Steven A. Felsenthal, of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger LLP, was recently named one of the top two personal tax attorneys in the State of Illinois by Leading Lawyers Magazine

While Felsenthal is best known as a tax attorney, he counsels clients on a full spectrum of legal issues and business matters; Leading Lawyers’  decision to feature him on last year’s cover of its annual “Top Business Lawyers In Illinois” edition is a testament to the versatile quarterbacking role he plays for so many clients. 

Felsenthal has previously won similar accolades, being named, for example, a Leading Lawyer in such practice areas as Business and Individual Tax Law; Trust, Will & Estate Planning Law; and Closely & Privately Held Business Law. Just last year, Leading Lawyers featured Felsenthal on the cover of its annual “Top Business Lawyers in Illinois” edition.

Less than five percent of all lawyers licensed in each state receive the distinction of being named a Leading Lawyer; being so named over many years and in multiple categories is even rarer.
