Nichole C. Patton campaign website found online

Assistant State's Attorney Nichole C. Patton is planning a 2014 judicial bid. That's a link to Patton's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Patton has been licensed as an Illinois attorney since 1997. According to her campaign website, Patton is currently assigned to the State’s Attorney Office, Senior and Persons with Disabilities Unit, responsible for prosecuting cases seeking commitments and treatment for individuals who have been involuntarily detained at Cook County mental health hospitals. She also serves as a hearing officer for the Village of Matteson, hearing and as an arbitrator in the Cook County court-annexed mandatory arbitration system.

Patton worked in the State's Attorney's Office previously, until 2001. Before rejoining that office in 2006, Patton was a staff attorney with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, an associate with Iwan Cray Huber Horstman & VanAusdal and a sole practitioner.

This is Patton's third bid for judicial office; she ran in the 15th Subcircuit in 2010 and countywide in 2012.
