Background

Since 2006, Judge Linda E. Davenport has served DuPage County as an Associate Judge, tirelessly committed to the cause of justice. She has earned a reputation as a thoughtful jurist, always willing to provide impartial consideration and never shying from tough cases. Judge Davenport is a mentor to both attorneys and judges, regularly teaching at the Judicial Education Conference and DuPage Bar.

Prior to being a judge, Davenport spent 27 years as an attorney, using her skills as a zealous advocate to grow the successful law firm of Fortunato, Farrell, Davenport & Arnold. In 1995 she made history as the first woman elected President of the DuPage County Bar Association since its inception in 1879. In 2016, the DuPage Association of Women Lawyers named her Inspirational Woman of the Year.

In 1980 Davenport co-founded a free legal advice clinic at the Lombard YWCA. While raising a family, she served on the Wheaton City Council. She lives in Wheaton with her husband Joseph Fortunato. They are the parents of three adult children and grandparents of three. She is an active member of 1st Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn where she runs the PADS program, a service for the homeless.
