The March 2016 Leading Lawyers Magazine Consumer Edition profiled Francis A. Gembala in an article titled “Former Judge Enjoys ‘Return’ to Serving Clients and the Public.”

The article describes the evolution of Gembala’s life from childhood and his education at Notre Dame High School in Niles, Illinois, to his life as a young professional, then a judge, and finally as a lawyer returning to private practice, most recently at Birnbaum, Haddon, Gelfman & Arnoux, LLC.

Among his stories and the photos contained in the piece are images with his high school classmate James Pankow of the band Chicago, his weekends spent at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the likes of Dario Franchitti and Tony Kanaan, and personal meetings with such Polish heroes as Lech Walesa and Saint John Paul II the Great.

In the article, Gembala says, “I’m happy to pursue what is important to me. So I find myself selectively doing what I enjoy and where I find I can help.”
