Top Lawyers Back Thomas M. Cushing

In a recent primary bid for Judge of the Circuit Court, Tom Cushing earned the active support of eleven current or past Presidents or Chairmen of the top trial lawyer and judicial associations. Cushing’s supporters included attorneys who led:

  • Illinois State Bar Association
  • Chicago Bar Association
  • Illinois Trial Lawyers Association
  • Association of Trial Lawyers of America
  • Society of Trial Lawyers, Illinois
  • Illinois Judges Association
  • Appellate Lawyers Association
  • International Association of Defense Council
  • Illinois Chapter of the American Judicature Association
  • Markey/Wigmore Inn of Court

“Some of the finest attorneys and firms in the city — and in the country, for that matter — were included among my list of supporters. I couldn’t have been more proud of their endorsement,” said Tom Cushing of his 2014 bid.

Cushing is a twenty-seven year attorney whose career has focused extensively on civil trial work on behalf of injury victims and small businesses as well as on environmental advocacy. He has earned the respect and support of his colleagues in the plaintiffs’ trial bar as well as defense and corporate attorneys in Chicago.

“The universal respect Tom has earned as a trial lawyer and as a person, from colleagues and opponents alike, is the distinguishing characteristic of his career. The endorsement of this group of stellar attorneys says it all,” said Cushing for Judge campaign supporter and trial attorney John M. Saletta.
