Four new candidates file in the 15th Subcircuit

Associate Judge Joan Marie G. Kubalanza filed Monday for the Lipinski vacancy in the 15th Judicial Subcircuit. Appointed in 1998, Kubalanza is currently assigned to the Child Protection Division of the Juvenile Court. Before going on the bench, Kubalanza was a partner with Foley & Lardner.

Also filing Monday for all three 15th Subcircuit vacancies was Michael Brendan Barrett. A lawyer since 1991, Barrett is currently employed by Barrett & Sramek of Palos Heights. Michael Barrett's brother Brian was appointed to a Will County subcircuit seat earlier this year by the Illinois Supreme Court.

There are a lot of William Moores practicing law in Illinois, but (on information and belief) the William D. Moore who filed for the Phelan vacancy in the 15th Subcircuit on Monday is a solo practitioner with a mailing address in Robbins. A lawyer since 1999, Moore has done work for the State Appellate Defender.

Finally, as mentioned here Monday, Orland Park attorney Peter A. Fera filed for the Panichi vacancy in the 15th Subcircuit. A lawyer since 1968, Fera has considerable experience in wills and estates, trusts, banking regulations and compliance, mortgage law, and real estate law.

I have been unable to find websites for any of these candidates as of yet.
