Rathje Woodward LLC is pleased to recognize Reese J. Peck, the 2021 winner of the Ralph A. Gabric Award for Professionalism. This is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a lawyer or judge by the DuPage County Bar Association. First conferred in 1997, the award is presented to that member of the DCBA whose personality, leadership and professionalism has significantly enhanced the organization.

It speaks of the rewards of honesty and humility over pride and arrogance. Ralph personified these qualities, which live on through his award, and it is because of the personal and professional qualities for which this award stands that I am humbled and honored to be deemed worth of it.

At the June 15, 2021 DCBA gathering at Klein Creek County Club Scott E. Pointner delivered remarks highlighting Reese’s career accomplishments with the Award being presented in a special ceremony in January 2022.

Reese has practiced at RW since 1984 when we were named Rathje, Woodward, Dyer & Burt. Although many things have changed over the decades, Reese has been steadfast in demonstrating the values of integrity and honesty. We are grateful for his service both in the community where he volunteers with many different philanthropic endeavors and in house where he serves with dignity on the personnel committee.

He describes his journey over the past 38 years in the DCBA Brief article featured here.
