Joe Sirchio was born in the Chicago suburbs and attended the University of Iowa where he graduated with degrees in History and Biology. After completing his dual degrees, Mr. Sirchio attended law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law, listed as one of the top 100 law schools in the country. After law school, Joe established a solo practice focusing on criminal law and business transactions. For two years Joe had the opportunity to visit all of Cook County’s criminal courthouses. It was apparent to Joe that the disparate resources available to defendants resulted in unjustifiably varying outcomes. In an effort to address this inequity, Mr. Sirchio volunteered to work for free at Summary Suspension hearings to help those who were unable to hire an attorney.
