The long-serving chief of the Chicago U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Criminal Division is departing for Stroz Friedberg LLC after more than two decades in the office.
David Glockner, the former Northern District of Illinois’ Criminal Division chief, will now serve as a managing director of the firm’s new Chicago office, according to a news release.
Glockner has served as the Criminal Division chief since 2000, overseeing a number of high-profile prosecutions. During his tenure, his office successfully prosecuted former Govs. George Ryan and Rod Blagojevich on corruption charges. He joined the office in 1987 and has also served as an assistant U.S. attorney, Deputy Chief of the Criminal Receiving and Appellate Division and Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Division. Office graduates have called Glockner, with his wide-ranging experience, “institutional knowledge personified.”
The former prosecutor is a graduate of the University of Chicago and Stanford University Law School.
