Daniel L. Jasica has been chosen as the next associate judge of the 19th judicial circuit, officials announced Tuesday. Jasica, who is chief deputy of the civil division in the Lake County State's Attorney's Office, fills a vacancy created by the retirement of associate judge Joseph R. Waldeck. Jasica received a majority of votes cast by circuit judges, officials said. The appointment is effective Sept. 15, officials said. "Dan's expertise in the law, his substantial experience, judicious temperament, and total professionalism are lasting qualities that Dan will bring to the bench," Chief Judge John Phillips said. Jasica, who lives in Lake Forest, began his law career in 1991 working as an associate in a law firm in Dallas, TX. He has worked as a Lake County assistant state's attorney since 1997.
