With 20 years of legal experience, Vince provides his clients with a diverse skill set for solving most legal problems. As a former law clerk with the Illinois Appellate Court and felony prosecutor, his practice centers on both trial work and appellate litigation. This background allows him to advise his clients on how to resolve conflicts short of litigation; yet, when a lawsuit ensues, Vince easily transitions to the role as staunch advocate, having been involved in a diverse array of cases including personal injury and property damage, non-compete/non-solicitation disputes, business dissolution and accountings, discrimination and civil rights claims, construction defect, mechanic’s lien and breach of contract claims, UCC, banking and foreclosure matters, municipal zoning, and school disciplinary hearings.Vince has conducted more than 90 jury and bench trials, involving both civil and criminal matters, in addition to dozens of evidentiary hearings, including arbitrations/mediations, temporary restraining orders/injunctions, and pre-judgment attachment proceedings. He is admitted to practice in Illinois, the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit, and the Northern and Central Districts of Illinois, including the Trial Bar. Further, Vince has been lead attorney on more than 36 appeals in state and federal court, having presented oral arguments before the Illinois Appellate Court, First and Second Districts, and the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Vince believes his service to the community goes beyond legal representation, presently serving as President of the Kane County Bar Foundation – the charitable arm of the bar association. He believes giving back to the community is as important to providing top quality legal service to his clients.
Vince is a graduate of Illinois Benedictine College and Chicago-Kent College of Law. He looks forward to assisting you through any legal challenges you or your business may face.
