James M. Quigley attended and graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism in 1989. James originally hoped to combine his love of sports and his gift of gab in becoming a sports broadcaster, until he decided to pursue his passion for debate and pursuit of a law degree.
Upon completing his undergraduate studies at the University Wisconsin–Madison, James enrolled at DePaul University, College of Law, in Chicago, Illinois, where he received his Juris Doctorate (JD) in May of 1992. James then sat for the Illinois State bar exam in July 1992, and after successfully passing the Illinois State bar exam, was licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois in November 1992.
Mr. Quigley’s emphasis on education has continued throughout his career. Mr. Quigley has continued to lecture on a variety of legal topics at seminars sponsored by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), The Lake County Bar Association, Chicago Bar Association, IICLE and elsewhere. Additionally, Mr. Quigley helped co–teach a divorce trial skills course with his partner, Miles Beermann, at DePaul University College of Law, where he earned his law degree.
Education, both learning and teaching, is at the core of Mr. Quigley’s practice, as well as the entire Beermann firm.
