David Liberty

AT WORK

David commenced his legal experience as a Law Clerk in the elite Homicide Task Force of the Cook County Public Defender's Office, where he learned trial skills from Assistant Public Defender Marijane Placek, an attorney whose legendary exploits in Chicago criminal courtrooms had been made into two books. Never afraid of a challenge in the courtroom, David has experience arguing motions and trying cases in front of judges and juries across the State of Illinois.

AT PLAY

David enjoys spending time with his family and friends, is a college football fan (Huskies!), and enjoys golfing when the weather permits.
