Robert D. Perrone is one of the newest associate attorneys to join JLG; yet arrives with an accomplished track record for winning complex civil litigation during his time with one of Chicago’s largest law firms.
He is a graduate of Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois (Bachelors of Business, Marketing) and received a Juris Doctorate (JD) from Northern Illinois University (2019) after graduating law school early in only 2 ½ years.
Robert devoted time in law school to volunteering at the Zeke Giorgi Legal Clinic where he appeared before judges represented clients who were involved in various legal matters ranging from family law to criminal law.
Prior to attending law school, Robert worked as a paralegal for five years at one of Chicago’s largest law firms, where he drafted legal documents and conducted in-depth legal research and analysis in anticipation of litigation. Robert worked on several high-profile cases, including one that had a $2 billion favorable outcome for his firm's client. This success affirmed Robert’s passion for the law and influenced his decision to attend law school.
For Robert, there are no typical days at JLG. He is particularly satisfied when advocating for his clients to make sure his cases have the best possible outcome.
“Helping people who do not see other options is rewarding. Clients are often concerned about the future unknowns; whether it be financial or with regard to parental rights. When I’m assigned a case, I am determined to assist in any way necessary to ensure the best possible outcome for my client and their family as a whole,” Robert said.
When not in the office, Robert has volunteered both his athletic coaching and legal skills. Robert has coached youth baseball and also volunteered his legal expertise through Pro-bono client representation.
In his free time, Robert enjoys attending sporting events and concerts. He also enjoys spending time with his two dogs: Shiloh and Mago.
