Having devoted 25 years of his professional practice to public service in the representation of governmental bodies and officials, Dennis Both has a breadth of experience rarely found. Because of this experience, Dennis was recently tapped to serve as an expert witness in municipal governmental matters. He has successfully defended and prosecuted a diverse range of controversies from wrongful death and negligence claims, to professional liability, civil rights and commercial disputes. Dennis recently represented some of Chicago’s largest real estate developers in contract disputes that resulted in settlements and judgments totaling more than $25 million for his clients.
Dennis is admitted to practice in the State of Illinois, the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court where his admission was sponsored by former Illinois Governor James R. Thompson. In addition to the courts, Dennis has built a successful practice in representing individuals and companies before administrative tribunals such as the State of Illinois Liquor Control Commission, the Sheriff’s Merit Board and the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, where he recently succeeded in overturning a mortgage broker’s license suspension.
