The new governor of Illinois has wisely chosen former Illinois Attorney General Consumer Protection Chief Deborah Hagan as Secretary of the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation. Hagan, a 36-year veteran of the Illinois Attorney General’s office, headed up the Consumer Protection division at the office. She specialized in areas including mortgage protections, student loan servicing, debt collection and identity theft. Hagan has a law degree from the University of Dayton law school.
M&S attorneys have had the pleasure of both prosecuting and defending dozens of cases she brought for over two decades. A consummate professional, she always listened to all positions before deciding her cause of action. Illinois businesses impacted by this Department can be assured a knowledgeable, reasonable regulator is at the helm.
