Melissa J. Cooney and Elizabeth Felt Wakeman recently have been recognized by their peers as Leading Lawyers in the field of family law. With the addition of Cooney and Wakeman, the Crystal Lake-based law firm of Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle now claims five Illinois Leading Lawyers.

Other ZRFM attorneys who have been named members of the Leading Lawyers Network are Richard G. Flood, David W. McArdle, and David J. Loughnane. Collectively, the five Leading Lawyers have practiced for 146 years.

The distinction of being a Leading Lawyer has been earned by fewer than 5 percent of all lawyers licensed to practice in Illinois.  It is the result of a statewide survey of peers and is not a distinction that may be purchased.

Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle, the largest law firm in McHenry County, Illinois, has a highly regarded divorce and family law practice, with more than 60 years of divorce litigation experience and a record of more than 2,000 cases handled.
