Codilis & Associates, P.C. // Senior Attorney

Codilis & Associates, P.C. represents corporate clients in the consumer financial services sector. I manage the firm’s appellate practice—I have won favorable dispositions for the firm’s clients in dozens of appeals and have orally argued before many of the Illinois Appellate Court districts and the Illinois Supreme Court. I also litigate cases at the trial court level in state and federal court involving regulatory statutes such as the FDCPA, RESPA, and TILA.

Why you are a member of the WBAI?

I am a member of the WBAI because of its fantastic programs and events. The first WBAI event I attended featured illuminating presentations by three Appellate Court justices, and each program I’ve been to since has been similarly impressive. Its events unfailingly have a great atmosphere of camaraderie and support, and through the WBAI I’ve met friends and colleagues that I probably would not have met otherwise. I’m also happy to support the WBAI’s mission of gender equality, particularly as my wife and I raise a family as two working attorneys.

What you are most looking forward to this fall?

I’m looking forward to enjoying the weather and seeing family at the holidays.

Tell us something interesting about you.

My wife Margaret’s name and my name appear together as counsel on appeal in two Appellate decisions (so far).
