Supervisor of the Juvenile Division
Assistant State’s Attorney Tina Filipiak is Supervisor of the Juvenile Division. She and members of the Juvenile Division team perform an increasingly important role in our criminal justice system. Gangs and drugs are at the root of the vast majority of adult crimes. By providing meaningful deterrence at an early age, it is possible to prevent a child from taking the wrong path toward a life of crime.
Tina Filipiak joined the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office in 1992 after working in the Hennepin County (Minnesota) Attorney’s Office, where she was assigned to the Criminal Appeals Division. In 1993, Filipiak was appointed Supervisor of the Will County State’s Attorney’s Juvenile Division. She supervises all prosecutions involving minors in Will County. The Juvenile Division also prosecutes parents who abuse or neglect their children. In the most serious abuse and neglect cases, the division litigates the termination of parental rights.
