I am writing to express my endorsement of Scott Frankel, who is running to be Judge in the 11th Subcircuit. Scott has lived in Oak Park for the past 19 years. He has also been an attorney for 32 years. Before going into private practice, Scott worked as a Cook County public defender. He and I have worked together on a number of cases and I have firsthand knowledge of his great expertise, diligence and respect for people. 

As a fellow attorney but also as a voter, I am comforted to know that attorneys and people like Scott exist. He is a very compassionate person and is dedicated to his work and ideals of improving the justice system. He believes that every man deserves competent and committed representation in the courts. Such dedication to his cases, his intelligence, expertise and perseverance, has brought him much success in his private practice.

Scott never ceases to be a passionate advocate for respect and justice in the court system. He believes that in the courtroom, there should be no room for egos and games, that fair representation and conscientiousness can ensure justice. 

I believe that as a judge, Scott Frankel would remain as honest, hard-working and conscientious as he is now. I would encourage anyone who has not met Scott to take an opportunity to do so and to vote for him in the upcoming election.
