For the second year in a row, James C. Franczek, Jr. was named to Chicago Magazine’s Annual 100 Most Powerful Chicagoans published in the magazine’s March 2014 issue. Jim is only one of five private practice attorneys to make the list this year. At #79, Jim's profile reads as follows: "Mayor Emanuel’s first choice for difficult labor contract negotiations had his hands full last year with the city police union.
