Having never sought public office before, Brendan is not a professional politician. He's a local family man and small business owner who is fed up with the disaster in Springfield and politics as usual - and he's decided to do something about it.
A lifelong resident of Glenview, Brendan attended Glenview’s excellent public schools and graduated from Glenbrook South High School. Brendan went on to obtain his undergraduate degree in political science at Loyola University Chicago. He then earned his law degree, with honors, at DePaul University College of Law where he served on both the DePaul Law Review and the Moot Court Appellate Team.
Brendan is an entrepreneur, operating his own law firm since 2003. He represents individuals, families and small businesses in corporate, litigation and real estate matters. Brendan has also worked with the pro bono agency “The Center for Disability and Elder Law” since 2000 and he continues to represent needy and elderly clients on a pro bono basis.
Brendan has been married to his high-school sweetheart Doris, since 1996 and has two daughters, ages 6 and 3. Brendan is a parishioner at OLPH Church in Glenview, where he and his children were all baptized. His father, an Army veteran, and his mother, an Assyrian immigrant, will be celebrating their 39th wedding anniversary later this year and also live in Glenview.
