David Garcia

Running for Judge, Judicial District 12, Will County
Election: Nov. 6, 2018

At 35, David decided to continue his education. He applied to three law schools, of which he was accepted by two. He chose to attend Chicago Kent School of Law. While working a full time managerial job, he went to school at night. His intelligence and his resolve to succeed helped him to complete his legal education, pass the bar, and be sworn in as a lawyer on November 9, 1995. David was born in Chicago to hardworking parents working blue collar jobs. After his parents divorced, he and his sister were raised by a strong and independent mother. David will always be grateful to her for teaching him to be studious, equally independent, fair, and kind. Regretfully, his mother passed away before he became an attorney. David and his wife have been married for 41 years, and they raised their two adult children, Christine and Daniel, as he was raised, with a strict but loving hand as well as by example. He is the proud grandfather of three wonderful grandchildren, Alyssa, Ava, and Juan
