He will continue his work on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide securing justice working from Capital Hill to local courtrooms.

Mr. Ozmon, a graduate of Loyola Law School, Chicago, Illinois, practices throughout the United States with his principle office, the Law Offices of Laird M. Ozmon, Ltd., in Joliet, Illinois.
