The Chicago Lawyer Person of the Year is an honor given to the newsmaker, trendsetter or legal leader of the year.

“The banner headline for Antonio Romanucci this year is the historic $27 million settlement the George Floyd legal team secured. It’s a major dollar figure for a case that struck nerves - many that continued to be frayed to this very day - throughout the United States. But where one could be despondent, Romanucci is hopeful. He has to be, otherwise what’s the point? So in addition to his heavy workload at Romanucci & Blandin, he’s barnstorming the country speaking to lawyers, law students and others who can make a difference in the quest for justice,” said John McNally, Managing Editor of Chicago Lawyer Magazine.

“There is no question that this honor is a capstone for my career as a trial attorney. It’s so hard to believe how far my life has come since my days as a Cook County Public Defender to now one of the founding partners at a nearly 25-year-old Romanucci & Blandin. It’s a testament to the will and fortitude my law partner, Stephan Blandin, and I have always had to make sure the client comes first,” said Antonio M. Romanucci, Founding Partner of Romanucci & Blandin.
