About me

Attorney David M. Wendlinger joined R. Cordell Funk, LLC in 2011. His practice consists of both Criminal Defense and Family Law. Under criminal defense, he handles cases such as OWI/DUI, Felonies/Misdemeanors, Traffic Cases/License Suspensions, and Juvenile Delinquencies. Under family law, he handles Divorce, Child Custody and Visitation, Support Modification, Paternity and Adoption. He also handles personal injury cases as well as general litigation.

David was admitted to the Illinois State Bar and the U.S. District for the Northern District of Illinois in 2002. He was then admitted to the Indiana State Bar in 2009. Upon graduation from law school, David was In-House Counsel for LaSalle Bank, NA handling land trusts and asset-based loan transactions. From there he worked as an Underwriter for Chicago Title underwriting insurance policies for large commercial loan transactions secured by collateral governed by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. In 2009, David joined the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office. As a Deputy Prosecutor, he handled cases in most of the criminal courts in Lake County. He gained experience prosecuting criminal charges as minor as traffic violations, to more serious matters involving gun charges, theft, battery and OWI/DUIs, to the most serious of crimes: murder.
