Antonio “Tony” Romanucci joins the pod to discuss his mission to protect a client’s human and constitutional rights. Tony speaks about how his work in the Cook County Public Defender’s Office has guided him as a plaintiff attorney, particularly in regard to ensuring the civil rights of all of his clients are upheld in our justice system.

Tony’s work on civil rights cases, particularly excessive force cases, has led to national recognition. Notably, Tony recently represented George Floyd’s family in their civil suit against the City of Minneapolis. Tony explains how the public’s awareness of the murder of George Floyd has led to reforms across the country in reducing excessive force and police misconduct cases. Tony also breaks down his view of the prosecution’s murder case against Derek Chauvin.

Tony’s personal mission, guided by three words — “Whatever it Takes,” — is to ensure that changes across the country are enacted to make sure that what happened to George Floyd never happens again.

A primary driver of Lawyer Minds is to connect lawyers from around the country through their ingenuity and ideas.

  • One of the ways we’re tackling this is through written interviews that lawyers can nominate themselves to complete.
    • If you are willing to do a written interview, nominate yourself.
      • If selected, your interview will get published on a specific day and get featured on our site and social media.
    • We’re also launching a series of podcasts and articles from a variety of contributors but are encouraging others to apply.
