CBA evaluations in the race for the Starks vacancy in the 7th Subcircuit

The Chicago Bar Association has released its evaluations of candidates running for the Toney vacancy in the 7th Subcircuit. Candidates are listed in ballot order. All of the following are candidates in the Democratic primary; no Republican filed for this Circuit Court vacancy.

Tommy Brewer -- Qualified
Tommy H. Brewer is “Qualified” for the office of Circuit Court Judge. Mr. Brewer was admitted to practice law in Illinois in 1976. Mr. Brewer has a wide range of experience which includes employment in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office for four years, service as an FBI agent, service as an Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney, and, as an Administrative Law Judge in the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation. Prior to his appointment, Mr. Brewer had been a sole practitioner concentrating his practice in criminal defense. He possesses the requisite qualities to serve as a Circuit Court Judge.

Roxanne L. Rochester -- Not Recommended
Roxanne Rochester is “Not Recommended” for the office of Circuit Court Judge. Ms. Rochester was admitted to practice law in 1989 and practiced in a small firm and as a solo practitioner until 2005. For almost seven years, Ms. Rochester has served as a staff attorney for a judge in the Law Division. Ms. Rochester is known for her diligence, but lacks the requisite depth and breadth of practice experience to serve as a Circuit Court Judge.
