About JohnPaul Ivec

JohnPaul has amassed significant trial and appellate expertise through his roles as a prosecutor at the Will County State’s Attorney and a clerk at the Illinois State Appellate Public Defender. Situated in the Plainfield/Joliet area, he extends his legal services to clients in Will, Cook, DuPage, Kendall, and Grundy counties.

His clients benefit from JohnPaul’s diverse educational background. Having received legal training at the prestigious University of Michigan Law School, studied comparative criminal procedure at Oxford University, and completed the University of Michigan’s Honor’s Program, he brings a unique advantage to his practice. A lifelong learner, JohnPaul's academic journey spans from being the valedictorian of Plainfield High School to attaining an Honor’s degree in History from the University of Michigan. Beyond his legal endeavors, JohnPaul cherishes family life, being married with five children and a dog. He also expresses his creativity through music, excelling as a pianist, crafting songs, and contributing to his church’s praise team.

From the onset of client intake to the concluding status letter, JohnPaul is dedicated to securing the best possible outcome for each client. In the realm of legal representation, the process often involves filtering out distractions and extraneous elements. Reflecting on a tale about a renowned sculptor asked if sculpting a horse from a large block of granite was difficult, he responded with a smile, “No, actually it is quite simple. You see, I simply eliminate everything that is not the horse.” In the pursuit of results-focused advocacy, the key lies in consistently removing irrelevant arguments and distractions to attain the sought-after outcome.
