About me

     I grew up in Park Ridge, Illinois and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree from Illinois State University. In 1987, I received a Juris Doctor degree from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. From 1987 to 1993 I served as an assistant state’s attorney with the Lake County States Attorney’s Office. In that capacity, I handled all types of criminal cases including DUIs, drugs, sex offenses, white collar crimes and crimes of violence including homicide. In 1993, I went into private practice and became a partner at Noonan, Perrillo and Polenzani where I practiced in both criminal and civil litigation. In 2013, I became a partner at Fox, Lunardi, Zeit & Polenzani, a preeminent Lake County litigation firm.

     I am a father of two and past school board president, as well as a former youth football coach. I continue to serve as the Waukegan Teen Court Judge, a volunteer position which I have held for over 10 years.

     Since 2010, I have been the co-chair of the "Breast Fest" fundraising concert supporting the Avon Breast Cancer Walk and am a member of the Breast Fest of Champions fundraising team.
