Anna Nugent – Attorney at Law
O’Dekirk, Allred & Rhodes, LLC – Joliet, Illinois
Anna is a native of Manhattan and is a lifelong resident of Will County.
Growing up, she was active in community activities ranging from athletics to the local 4H Club. These activities led her to pursue a career in agriculture and she graduated from the University of Illinois in 2014 with a degree in Agribusiness Markets and Management. Upon graduation, she pursued her lifelong dream of becoming an attorney and attended The John Marshall Law School in Chicago.
During law school, Anna participated in the Will County Judicial Externship program where she clerked for judges in both the civil and criminal sector. She then went on to clerk for the Chief Justice Bruce Black in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois. She pursued bankruptcy law by using her 7-11 license at the Department of Justice where she drafted memorandums, conducted legal research, and appeared on motions on behalf of the United States Trustee.
Although Anna enjoyed clerking, she knew her true passion was in the courtroom. During her third year of law school, she was a 7-11 intern at the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office. During that time, she gained valuable litigation and courtroom experience before becoming a licensed attorney.
Anna was admitted to the Illinois bar in November 2017. Prior to joining the firm, she worked as an assistant state’s attorney in Vermillion County where she prosecuted juvenile abuse and neglect. She was also as an assistant public defender in Will County where she handled criminal misdemeanor and misdemeanor traffic cases. Her daily courtroom time has sharpened her skills to be a zealous advocate for her clients.
In her spare time, Anna spends time with her family and friends. She also enjoys giving back to the community as a youth basketball coach and is a member of the Erin’s Rovers Ladies Gaelic Football Club.
