In 1866, the Village of Palatine was founded by Joel Wood, who is commemorated today by a Palatine downtown street bearing his name. Palatine is a suburb of Chicago and lies in Cook County. Palatine's population began growing quickly during the 1970s, and today Palatine is home to about 67,200 people.
Palatine residents are served by the Cook County Unified Court System. The Circuit Court of Cook County
is Illinois' largest circuit court, and one of the world's largest unified court systems. To accommodate the over 2.4 million cases filed annually in the Cook County Circuit Court, the court is divided into three departments: Child Protection, County, and Municipal and Juvenile Justice. All three departments are located in Chicago, and a qualified Palatine lawyer will be familiar with the local court rules and orders
Recently, Palatine Township GOP committeeman Gary Skoien sought a restraining order
against his wife, who is facing domestic battery
