Judge Daniel B. Shanes is the clear choice for Lake County Circuit judge to be elected on Nov. 6. Since his judicial appointment in 2007,
Judge Shanes quickly rose through the judicial ranks and now presides over a felony courtroom, where he hears and administers justice in the most complex and serious criminal cases in Lake County.
Judge Shanes is a recognized legal scholar, having published dozens of articles in legal journals and been selected (as the only judge in Lake County) to serve on the Illinois Supreme Court's Committee on Education where he literally teaches other judges the law and how to conduct themselves in a courtroom.
Judge Shanes' excellence and integrity have been recognized by his peers and those who know his qualifications best. It is little wonder that the both the Illinois State Bar Association and the Lake County Bar Association awarded Judge Shanes their highest ratings and recommendations as a judicial candidate.
Take the time to educate yourself about the character and qualifications of the judges we will be electing. If you do, you will conclude, as I have, that Judge Daniel Shanes is the far more qualified candidate and deserves your vote.
