May 24, 2012
Attorney Gerald A. Cassioppi of Naperville has been named Lawyer of the Year by the DuPage County Bar Association. The award was presented in recognition of his excellent capacity as General Counsel and his dedication to reworking the DCBA bylaws.
According to outgoing DCBA President Colleen McLaughlin, "Gerry has been an incredible asset this year to our Board of Directors and to me personally. As issues arose, particularly when emotions ran high, he was always able to bring focus and perspective to all our discussions. As President, I could not have asked for a better 'sounding board.' Gerry's experience with other non-profits, organizations and his knowledge of the changing laws in this area was tremendously helpful throughout the year; particularly when we took on the task of completely revising our bylaws. That project involved a huge time commitment on Gerry's part and our organization owes him a debt of gratitude for his commitment to getting the job done."
