March 18, 2014 Primary Election:
Welcome to the virtual campaign headquarters of Judge Chris Lawler. This site will allow you to learn more about Judge Lawler and his qualifications, volunteer for or donate to his campaign. On July 8, 2013, I was sworn in as a full Circuit Court Judge by Justice Anne Burke after being appointed to the Court by a unanimous vote of the Illinois Supreme Court. I am currently assigned to the Markham Courthouse. Prior to my appointment, I was a trial lawyer for 25 years, representing plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury matters. The experience I received in the Courtroom and in my law practice, heightened my love of the law and my desire to serve the Cook County community in a more meaningful capacity. I resigned from my successful law firm so that I could better serve the entire community as a Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County. My work experience, along with my service to many community organizations, including Catholic Charities, Marist High School, CARA, and the Maple/Morgan Park Food Pantry, resulted in Justice Burke’s Screening Committee finding me “well qualified” to serve as a Cook County Judge. Additionally, every Bar Association group that has evaluated my resume and qualifications has found me Qualified, Recommended or Highly Recommended to serve as a Judge in Cook County.Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will take the time to learn more about me and my qualifications so that you will support my candidacy for Judge of the 15thSubcircuit of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois. I am hopeful that you will help me continue my service to the community by voting for me in the Democratic Primary on March 18, 2014.Sincerely, Judge Chris Lawler
