BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A Belleville attorney has been appointed to serve as a judge on the Illinois Court of Claims, which handles lawsuits against the state.

Gov. Bruce Rauner announced the appointment of Michael McGlynn on Friday. The (Belleville) News-Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1JM6Rpy) the annual salary is $59,918.

The governor’s office says McGlynn has more than 30 years of experience representing individuals, non-profits and businesses in St. Clair County and throughout Illinois.

He’s a managing partner at McGlynn & McGlynn where he started his career as an associate attorney in 1984. His areas of practice are personal injury, business litigation and contracts, workers’ compensation, banking, and estates. He is also legal counsel for the NAACP.
