I’ve tried many cases, including jury trials, to verdict. I obtained an acquittal for a holiday court bailiff in the “Greylord” investigation into judicial corruption in the Circuit Court of Cook County. I represented the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County in a ten-week federal jury trial arising from the public corruption investigation “Operation Incubator.” I also participated in a multi-month Fair Housing Act/eminent domain action in the federal court where I defended the owner of a low-income housing project that a municipality sought to condemn.
I’ve written at least 85 civil and criminal appeals in the state and federal courts. These appeals, involving a wide range of issues, include several cases of first impression. I successfully argued a case involving important First Amendment issues before the Illinois Supreme Court.
