Justice Daniel Pierce is Law Day Speaker
The annual Law Day Luncheon will be held on Friday, May 1, 2015 from 12:00 noon until 1:30 p.m. at the Union League Club, 65 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago Illinois, in the Crystal Room.
Justice Pierce is an extremely well-respected member of the judiciary sitting in the First District Appellate Court, Second Division. Prior to becoming a judge in 2008, Justice Pierce had been an assistant Cook County State’s Attorney and chief deputy Cook County assessor. While in private practice concentrating in real estate and litigation, he was a member of the Illinois Supreme Court Committee on Character and Fitness from 1980 to 1996. He was also on the U.S. Senate Judicial Nominating Committee for the Northern District of Illinois from 1993 to 1996. Given Justice Pierce’s stature in the legal community and diverse legal background, I am certain everyone is in for an enjoyable Law Day Luncheon.
