Dominic J. Buttitta, Jr.

vote for me, Dominic J. Buttitta, Jr., for Cook County Judge in the 13th Subcircuit.

One of my best memories is from 2007. I had competed in the Valparaiso School of Law Moot Court Competition and won the award for best appellate brief. Who presented me the award? Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. I had the life-changing opportunity to sit with Justice Scalia to talk about the legal profession. He said I not only have a duty to myself to be ethical in all my practice, but that I owed that same duty to the bar, the entire legal profession, and every individual case I represent before the court. It was my job to read, apply, and effectively argue the law, nothing else. That conversation was the catalyst for my legal career. I love practicing law. As a constitutional originalist, I believe the Constitution should be interpreted exactly as the framers intended. My passion drives me to always continue learning, and I strive to become a legal scholar.
