2021 Pro Bono Service Award Recipient: Ted Donner

Ted Donner has had an impactful presence in DuPage County as a leader and true champion of pro bono legal services. Ted wants to give back to the community and help those who could never afford his services while also leading by example in the DuPage County Bar Association. He was instrumental in launching the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee. He is an adjunct professor at Loyola University Chicago School of Law and has helped set up regular Illinois Free Legal Answers clinics with their students and alumni as well as at NIU College of Law with their students and alumni, helping to engage the next generation of lawyers in volunteerism. Among his many other notable contributions, Ted is a pillar of the DuPage eviction mediation program that will help residents at this pivotal time at the end of the eviction moratorium. He graduated from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 1990, after receiving his bachelor’s degree from Roosevelt University. He currently runs his own practice, Donner & Company, which he opened in 2002.
