David E. Liberty

David E. Liberty joined the Law Offices of Tedone & Morton in January 2018, where he focuses on criminal and traffic cases in the trial courts, as well as drivers license reinstatement matters before the Illinois Secretary of State. Prior to joining the firm, David was an Assistant Public Defender with the Office of The Winnebago County Public Defender in Rockford, Illinois. During his two years in Winnebago County, he was quickly promoted from trying cases in juvenile court to misdemeanor and traffic court, and most recently, handling the most serious criminal cases in felony court.

David graduated from Chicago-Kent College of Law in May 2014. During law school, he completed the requirements of the Criminal Litigation Certificate, a rigorous, application-only program that prepared a limited number of students each year for a career practicing criminal law. As part of the certificate program, he served as a clerk with the Office of the Cook County Public Defender, first with the elite Homicide Task Force, and later as a Rule 711 license law student with the Felony Trial Division. While with the Homicide Task Force, he clerked for legendary Assistant Public Defender Marijane Placek, subject of two books about the Cook County Criminal Courts (Defending the Damned by Kevin Davis, and Courtroom 302 by Steve Bogira). Additionally, David clerked for Chicago-Kent's in-house Criminal Clinic and was awarded the Fleischman Family Award for Excellence in Criminal Clinic due to his dedication to the Clinic's clients. Upon graduation, he was inducted into Chicago-Kent's Bar and Gavel Society for his contributions to the law school and the legal community.

Originally from the West Coast, David earned his Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences with an Emphasis in Law, Politics, and the Economy from the University of Washington in Seattle in June 2011.
