PILI is building and nurturing a Community of Service within the Illinois Legal Community. This month we want to highlight Christopher Hunter.
Christopher currently maintains a private practice in Alton and serves the southern Illinois community as a trial attorney and mediator. He serves frequently as Guardian Ad Litem for the Third Judicial Circuit in the family and probate divisions. Christopher uses his extensive experience in civil litigation to volunteer for Catholic Charities and the Third Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee. He also donates his time to speak at continuing legal education seminars on a variety of topics in support of pro bono.
In addition to this work, he recently worked on an Illinois Armed Forces Legal Aid Network case through PILI. This case was lengthy and complex, but he was able to assist a veteran and their family with a difficult eviction.
