About me

I am a native Chicagoan. I attended DePaul University in their great basketball era and travelled the world while gaining my bachelor's degree in Political Science.

I attended The John Marshall Law School in downtown Chicago where I received my degree in Law in 1986. I passed the Illinois Bar and was admitted to practice law on November 6, 1986.

I was admitted to the Federal Bar on December 18, 1986 and have practiced in the Seventh Circuit District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on the Civil side and under the U.S. Bankruptcy code.

On April 25, 2011 I was admitted to the Bar of the United States Supreme Court in Washington D.C.
