Jeanne Barrett served as a Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney for over ten years, and during this time she built her reputation as a fierce advocate for justice. Jeanne is compassionate and committed to making sure her clients understand what to expect on each and every case. While Jeanne has broad experience in criminal and traffic law, she has a special passion for representing children and parents in juvenile, DCFS, and Education matters.

Jeanne’s years of court room experience, along with her deft negotiation skills, help her achieve the optimal results for each client she serves. She prides herself on being familiar with the social services available in McHenry County, and referrals to these often mitigate the outcomes in cases. Her experience working as a high school social science teacher and a young adult assistant librarian helps her communicate with her clients and collaborate with school personnel.

Jeanne has successfully defended medical, law enforcement and childcare professionals in DCFS investigations, allowing them to continue in their chosen professions.
