The Law Office of the Cook County Public Defender heartily congratulates Assistant Public Defenders Caroline Glennon-Goodman and Loveleen Ahuja on their appointments to the 10th and 8th judicial subcircuit vacancies, respectively. It is not surprising these two outstanding advocates were selected; both have practiced at our field's highest levels with grace, charisma, intelligence, skill, and honor.
Glennon-Goodman and Ahuja are incredibly well respected by their peers and the greater legal community because of what they brought to the profession, their clients, and our office. Now, our office’s loss is a tremendous gain for the people of Cook County.
We applaud the Illinois Supreme Court and Cook County Chief Judge for recognizing that the bench should be filled with leaders from diverse employment backgrounds. They know what our entire legal community should know: public defenders are incredible judicial candidates. Being a public defender requires top-notch litigation, communication, and negotiation skills—our work is enshrined in the Constitution, rooted in community, and in service to some of society's most vulnerable individuals.
Thank you, Judge Ahuja and Judge Glennon-Goodman, for your service as Assistant Public Defenders. We are so proud to have worked alongside you!
