James E. Hanlon, Jr. announces bench bid in 12th Subcircuit

Attorney James E. Hanlon, Jr. has announced plans to seek election to the Circuit Court from the 12th Judicial Subcircuit.

That's a link to Hanlon's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Licensed as an Illinois lawyer since 1984, Hanlon is currently director of client development initiatives for litigation and other key practice areas for Novus Law, working (according to his campaign website) with Novus clients on e-discovery issues, including "technology assisted review." Hanlon began his career with Katten Muchin Zavis (now Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP), rising from associate to equity partner in the course of an 18 career. In 2002, Hanlon joined another megafirm, Howrey LLP, working as an equity partner in the firm's global litigation group before leaving in 2008 to set up his own practice. He has been with Novus since 2010.

According to his campaign website, Hanlon has coached Hubbard High School's Mock Court Team; served as a mentor in the Illinois Supreme Court's Lawyer-to-Lawyer Mentor Program; served on the CBA's Judicial Evaluation Committee, Securities Law Committee and E-Discovery Committees; served as a member of the board of Teen Living Programs, Inc.; and served as president of both the Northbrook Hockey League and the Glenbrook North Spartan Hockey Club. He is married to Circuit Court Judge Kay Hanlon.
