Liz Homsy has been involved in the legal profession for nearly a decade. After graduating from Connecticut College, where she majored in English and minored in Revolutionary History and studied for over a full term at the University College in Dublin, Ireland, she worked for three years as a paralegal for Meckler, Bulger & Tilson, LLC, where her love of law began.
In July of 2012, Liz co-founded Madigan & Homsy, LLC, where she tried many cases involving criminal disputes, personal injury, contract disputes, and much more. After four years of work with her own firm, Liz determined that forward progress in her profession would benefit from involvement with more experienced attorneys in different practice areas, which led her to the Carmen D. Caruso Law Firm, where she serves as Of Counsel.
During law school, Liz gained experience working for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where she tried several cases as a 7-11 law clerk. Prior to graduation, Liz left work with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office to pursue a clerkship for Judge Ronald Bartkowicz, where she worked following graduation in 2011.
Liz is a member of the Illinois Bar Association, and volunteers with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services on certain matters. She is the editor and annotator for Grandfather’s Civil War Story, Published through Publish America, October, 2010, and has worked as photographer and writer for several other publications.
Admitted to the January, 2008 class at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Liz specialized in coursework focused on litigation and various areas of law. At John Marshall, she participated on both the Mediation Team, where she placed 3rd overall in the American Bar Association Representation in Mediation Competition in February of 2010, as well as on the John Marshall Moot Court, where she represented her school at the Thomas Tang Moot Court Competition in October of 2010.
