Jacqueline Carroll Obtains Appellate Win Affirming Summary Judgment

We are thrilled to have former Assistant State’s Attorney, Jacqueline Carroll on our team at the Bernstein Law Firm.

Prior to joining the Bernstein Law Firm in September of 2017, Jacqueline was an Assistant State’s Attorney at the Cook County State Attorney’s Office for over eleven years. She spent five years as a criminal prosecutor and six years representing county employees in civil cases, primarily in Federal Court.

During her time as an Assistant State’s Attorney, Jacqueline, and her co-counsel, successfully obtained summary judgment on behalf of their clients, convincing the trial court in the Circuit Cook County that the Plaintiff failed to sufficiently establish claims for malicious prosecution and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The Plaintiff subsequently appealed, and on November 17, 2017, the Illinois Appellate Court, First Judicial District affirmed the trial court’s ruling based upon the appellate brief authored by Jacqueline.
