Circuit Court Judge Randy Rosenbaum

Circuit Court Judge

Our judicial system plays a key role in ensuring justice for the citizens of our country. I’ve witnessed this firsthand. I was honored to have been appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court in 2016 and elected by the citizens of the Sixth Judicial Circuit in 2018. 

I believe that all litigants deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, and that common sense and listening to all sides of a case is key to making an informed, fair ruling.
