“It is my honor to lead an association that works toward the common good of making society safer and for ensuring that all people have access to the civil justice system. Affording those who are injured due to the fault of another an opportunity to be compensated for their injuries is essential to fundamental fairness and accountability in our daily lives,” Patrick A. Salvi II said. “During my term, I want to ensure that the public and our legislators have a deep understanding of how the laws affect our clients so that the law can continue to reflect the values of our State.”
Salvi resides in Winnetka with his wife, Julianna, and three children, Patrick, Victoria and Jack. In his free time, Salvi enjoys being with his family, attending his children’s events, and cheering for their favorite sports teams: the White Sox, Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
