The Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) recently announced that our firm’s founding Partner, Joseph A. Power, Jr., will receive the Leonard M. Ring Lifetime Achievement Award at the ITLA convention on Friday, June 8th.
“This award is given annually at the convention banquet to someone selected by a committee appointed by the president,” wrote ITLA. “The recipient is someone who has devoted, as Leonard did, a substantial part of their life and their practice to ITLA, someone who has done more than is called for. Someone who has the standards of Leonard, the work ethics of Leonard and the commitment to ITLA that Leonard had. At the same time, it keeps alive the memory of Leonard Ring.”
ITLA has selected one recipient for this award every year since 1994. Power, Jr. was selected for a variety of reasons, including his incredible track record in the courtroom, his impact on the legal community, his philanthropic endeavors, his dedication to his clients, firm, and more. You can read more about his long list of accomplishments in ITLA’s press release here.

“Leonard Ring was a great trial lawyer as well a wonderful person. I am honored to receive this award named in his honor,” said Power, Jr. “He was a humble, down to earth person who served as a leader, mentor and role model to many of us younger trial lawyers in the Plaintiff’s Bar. I cannot think of a plaintiff’s lawyer more deserving to have an award named in his honor than Leonard. He was a dear friend and colleague who I miss to this day. I humbly accept this prestigious award named after my friend, Leonard Ring.”
