Who's running for judge? Another update

Just a couple of new names in this mid-week update....

Matteson attorney Nichole C. Patton is contemplating a judicial bid in the far south suburban 15th Judicial Subcircuit. The Patton Law Offices have a Facebook site. On the "wall" of that site is an invitation to become a "fan" of a Facebook group, "Elect Nichole C. Patton for the 15th Judicial Subcircuit."

An attorney since 1997, Patton's Facebook page says her practice is "a boutique law firm providing high-end legal services to corporations and individuals." Sullivan's Law Directory says her practice is in real estate, criminal law, and securities law. A search of newspaper records reveals a number of stories about a criminal case Patton defended in Downstate Bloomington in 2007.

Daniela Silaides, a Cook County Assistant State's Attorney and a lawyer since 2002 has also organized a judicial campaign committee, according to records filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections.
