Letter: Support Justin Hansen for McHenry Co. judge

To the Editor:

I support the election of Judge Justin Hansen.

Justin Hansen was unanimously appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to serve as McHenry County Circuit Court Judge. Before becoming a judge, he was an accomplished prosecutor and experienced defense attorney with over a decade of experience in law.

He also handled civil cases, represented individuals, small businesses, municipalities, doctors, and hospitals. As a practicing lawyer, he earned victories in jury trials here in McHenry County and surrounding counties. He also earned the respect of his fellow practitioners.

More importantly, as a lawyer, Judge Hansen demonstrated diligence, knowledge, and professionalism in dedication to the law.

These are precisely the qualities that Illinois and McHenry County needs in its judges. No doubt the Illinois Supreme Court recognized those same qualities when the members of that esteemed Court unanimously appointed Judge Hansen to the Circuit Court.

Judge Hansen currently presides over family court, and his decisions impact the lives of women, children, and families throughout McHenry County. His personal integrity, his sense of empathy, and his devotion to the fair application of the law have served the citizens well. I am proud to support his election. I look forward to his continued service in promoting justice in McHenry County.
