Chicago Lawyer Magazine named Patrick Salvi II, of law firm Salvi, Schostok and Pritchard P.C., its 2023 Person of the 12 months, an honor featured on the publication’s cover and with a feature, titled “Racking Up Wins,” on the publication’s website.

“That is an incredible honor. I’m so very thankful to Chicago Lawyer. I’m also thankful to the team at Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard, and the clients that now we have been honored to represent,” said Salvi, a Winnetka resident, in a news release. “From the mentorship I even have received from my dad and others to the incredible support of our firm and my family, I even have been blessed to have the chance to assist injured victims and to have a positive impact within the State of Illinois.

“Perhaps nobody deserves more thanks than my wife, Julianna Salvi, probably the most wonderful life partner I could ever ask for and amazing mother to our three kids, Patrick, Victoria, and Jack.”

Amongst other impacts in 2023, Chicago Lawyer Manging Editor John McNally identified how Salvi was retained by a former Northwestern University football player who sued the college over claims of hazing and sexual abuse.

“Salvi has touched the lives of people he’s encountered since entering the industry nearly 20 years ago — whether or not it’s his clients, colleagues, legislators, or opponents,” said Cailey Gleeson of Chicago Lawyer Magazine in a press release. “After securing the October 2022 record-breaking $363 million jury verdict award for Sue Kamuda against Sterigenics, followed by an overall $408 million settlement in January as lead counsel for the tons of of remaining lawsuits against Sterigenics and helping deliver significant legislative changes as ITLA president that allow punitive damages in wrongful death lawsuits, Salvi shows no signs of slowing down.”

Latest Trier High School seniors Duke Baur and Miriam Goroff-Behel were recently named 2024 YoungArts award winners, joining nearly 700 performing, literary and visual artists within the country.

Each musicians earned recognition for jazz discipline “for demonstrating exceptional technique, a powerful sense of artistry, and a unprecedented commitment to developing their crafts,” based on a news release from Latest Trier.

YoungArts is the humanities advocacy entity for the U.S. Department of Education.

This system accepted greater than 9,000 applications across 10 artistic disciplines, and Baur and Goroff-Behel, who play the tenor and alto saxophone, respectively, are two of only 4 students in Illinois to be chosen within the jazz division.

Together with the glory, the scholars earned a monetary award and access to a lifetime of arts-specific skilled development, funding and performance opportunities, and a network of inter-generational artists to attach, create, and collaborate with.

“My time at Latest Trier actually has made a fantastic impact on receiving this award,” Baur said in the discharge. “The performance opportunities, inspiring peers, and caring teachers make this place incredibly vital to me and positively crucial to my development as each a musician and student.”

Latest Trier Director of Jazz Ensembles Nic Meyer said in the discharge that Baur and Goroff-Behel exemplify what it means to be a dedicated student musician. Each students play in Latest Trier’s jazz and wind ensembles, take part in the Midwest Young Artists Conservatory Jazz Program, and are members of the Jazz Institute of Chicago’s Young Master’s Program.

“While Duke and Miriam take part in most of the same programs, they each have their very own distinct voices on the saxophone, which they’re sculpting as they study their musical heroes,” Meyer said. “ In that way, their paths are as unique as their very own musical voices, but they share a deep mutual respect for one another’s artistry. I’m proud to say that they’ll each all the time be members of our Latest Trier Jazz community.”

Goroff-Behel said, “I even have to provide plenty of credit to all my teachers and mentors who’ve all the time challenged me and encouraged me to change into the very best musician I could be. I don’t know where I’ll study just yet, but my ultimate goal is to create and play music that’s impactful and provoking.”
