About Pat Casey
Hi! I'm Pat. Nice to meet you.
I’m Pat Casey and I am asking for your support to serve as a Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County from the 8th Judicial Sub Circuit. It has been my privilege to serve as an Administrative Law Judge since 2009 and prior to that I was an attorney in private practice concentrating on police misconduct cases, personal injury and criminal defense.
I have been active in professional organizations and my community. I am a member of the Chicago Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association and the American Bar Association. I am also a longtime supporter of Miscercordia and support the Lakeview Pantry, Hope for the Day and Cure Violence.
I also serve as a pro bono attorney and was an Advisory Board member for System of Care Chicago (2006-2011).
I hope to be able to serve the people of Cook County and the 8th Judicial Sub Circuit as a Judge.
