Vote for Linda Perez for Judge!
I am a Cook County Public Defender, a Certified Union Steward, a lifelong Democrat and a resident of the 26th Ward.
I am a Cook County Public Defender in the felony trial division.
For nearly 17 years, I have represented indigent clients who are sometimes the lonely, the friendless, and often, the most feared members of our society. They are people, some with families, and some without. I have always strived to be a kind and compassionate person to them, because I have witnessed first hand the difference I have made in their and their family’s lives, just by taking the time to listen and then explain. I have worked hard to reassure my clients that despite their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, infirmity of mind or body, addictions, poverty or homelessness, that they are just as deserving of the protections of this country’s constitutional rights as anyone else. I believe that my background and qualifications have prepared me to continue my service to Cook County as a Circuit Court Judge.
