Schiller DuCanto & Fleck LLP is pleased to announce that Partner Thomas Villanti has been selected as one of Law Bulletin Media’s “40 Under Forty” Illinois attorneys to watch for 2019.
More than 1,500 nominations were submitted for consideration in the Law Bulletin Media’s 20th annual edition of its “40 Under Forty” selection. The Honorees were chosen based on intelligence, passion, community involvement and a willingness to work hard and be successful in their areas of practice.
Thomas is a family law attorney with Schiller, DuCanto & Fleck who handles matters of very high net worth individuals who have complex marital estates and sources of income. His comprehensive representation includes all aspects of family law, including contested court proceedings, complicated negotiation, in-depth financial analysis and the preparation of sophisticated prenuptial agreements.
When nominating Thomas as one of Illinois’ top young attorneys, opposing counsel and judges described him as a keen legal scholar with strong financial acumen and the ability to confidently advocate on behalf of his clients in a composed and highly effective manner.
Former domestic relations court judge, Lisa Ruble Murphy, says that Thomas “conducts himself with an exceptionally calm temperament and remarkable civility,” and that he “has the ability to explain very complex financial issues to the court in a straight forward, concise and understandable way.”
Thomas earned his J.D. from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Among his many career achievements, Thomas was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America© for 2020 and was selected for inclusion on the Rising Stars list by Super Lawyers from 2012 – 2018.
