To the Editor:
I support the election of Judge Justin Hansen to the office of Circuit Judge from Subcircuit 3 of McHenry County. Before I retired, I worked as a circuit court judge in the Woodstock courthouse.
Justin Hansen was a lawyer who often tried his cases in the courtrooms to which I was assigned. This experience makes me familiar with his professional ability.
Hansen has an excellent reputation for integrity and professional ability. He was always prepared. Hansen always knew his case and that of his opponent. He was an experienced and able courtroom lawyer. All lawyers have their own style in the courtroom. Hansen consistently behaved as though he understood the case was not all about him, but about the people he represented.
The Illinois Supreme Court appointed Hansen to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Judge Michael J. Sullivan. I could not agree more with the court’s decision.
Hansen’s habits suit him for the job as circuit court judge. He patiently listens to everyone involved in the case. He understands that everyone has something to say. Everyone must be provided the opportunity to be heard. Hansen has demonstrated his commitment to providing you that opportunity.
Please join me in supporting the election of Judge Justin Hansen.
