Lissa returns to Bailey Glasser after serving since 2015 as an Associate Judge for the 12th Judicial Circuit of Illinois in the Family and Civil Jury Trial divisions. In that role, Lissa presided over hundreds of bench and jury trials and mediated dozens of other cases to pre-trial settlements.

Prior to her appointment to the bench, Lissa was the partner-in-charge of Bailey Glasser’s Illinois office, where she worked on a wide range of litigation and regulatory matters. Earlier in her career, Lissa worked at a major Chicago law firm, ran an elder law project at a legal aid clinic, and served as lead outside counsel and prosecutor for several Illinois municipalities. 

Lissa has received several awards for her outstanding and impactful pro bono work. She also served two terms on the board of directors of the Illinois Lawyers Trust Fund by appointment of the Chief Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court. Lissa has been a frequent speaker at CLE conferences and an instructor at Illinois judicial training seminars.  

Lissa splits her time between Chicago and Washington, D.C. She and her husband, Robert Dow, Jr. have four adult children.
