William Tapella Super Lawyers 2021

Attorney William R. Tapella Selected to 2021 Illinois Super Lawyers®

At The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm, we are happy to congratulate Attorney William R. Tapella on his selection to the 2021 edition of Illinois Super Lawyers® for not one but three practice areas in Charleston!

Obtaining a Super Lawyers® listing is a difficult task: In vying for a spot on the list, attorneys are put through the wringer of a rigorous, patented multi-phase review. In addition, only attorneys who have been nominated by a third party — such as a peer, client, or colleague — or identified by the Super Lawyers® Research Team are considered eligible candidates for review. The review itself delves into a dozen different aspects of each candidate’s legal career. For instance, past case results are reviewed, and the position that the attorney holds at their law firm is considered. Super Lawyers® also evaluates a candidate’s scholarly writings and lectures, pro bono services, and community work, bar activity, and more.

After this initial review, the candidates who have obtained the highest Super Lawyers® scores thus far serve on a Blue Ribbon Panel to reevaluate all candidates in their respective practice areas. Then, the final selection is determined, with no more than 5% of United States attorneys appearing on the register. Super Lawyers® does aim to curate a vetted directory accurately representative of small, medium, and large law firms, so individuals can find a premier attorney who will fit their legal needs.

2021 Super Lawyers® recognized Attorney Tapella with listings in the following practice areas in Charleston, Illinois:

  • Civil Litigation: Plaintiff
  • Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff
  • Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice: Plaintiff

Attorney Tapella’s practice encompasses personal injury law, commercial and business litigation, and consulting. He has also achieved million- and multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements for the clients of The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm.

Outside of the office, Attorney Tapella has authored scholastic works discussing constitutional law and comparative fault, as well as shared his legal knowledge via lectures across the state and at the University of Illinois College of Law. He has been named by the Illinois Supreme Court to serve on the Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions Committee for civil cases, a committee that writes and adopts the instructions read to juries in Illinois civil cases. He is involved in his community, as he is an active member of environmental organizations and a member of professional organizations, including the Illinois State Bar Association, the American Association for Justice (AAJ), and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA).

If you need assistance in navigating civil litigation, especially in cases concerning medical malpractice, truck accidents, product liability, catastrophic personal injuries, and wrongful death, among others, Attorney Tapella and our team at The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm want to help.
