Connor Bidwill entered private practice after serving in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and military prosecutor. As a Judge Advocate, Connor successfully prosecuted felony and misdemeanor cases, advised senior military commanders on complex legal issues and deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Before joining the U.S. Army, Connor worked as a staff attorney for the Veterans Legal Support Center & Clinic where he helped draft and file an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the Snyder v. Phelps petitioner. While serving on the Veterans Court Task Force, Connor helped draft and pushed for the passage of the Illinois Veterans and Servicemembers Court Treatment Act, which created a specialized veterans treatment court in each of the state’s judicial circuits. In 2012, Connor wrote a chapter on Veteran State Benefits published in Servicemember and Veterans Rights.

With his extensive trial experience as a military prosecutor, Connor keeps his clients’ interests in the forefront while bringing a strategic and disciplined approach to nursing home cases to achieve favorable verdicts and settlements.

A native of Naperville, Ill., Connor graduated from the John Marshall Law School in the top 17% of his class. While attending law school, he was the Journal of Computer and Information Law’s managing editor. He also served as a judicial extern for the Illinois Appellate Court under Justice Margaret Frossard. Connor joined Levin & Perconti as an associate attorney in 2019.

Levin and Perconti was always there when we needed them and very quick to answer any questions. We are happy to say that Ashley Herschberger was very professional, informative, kind, and prompt when it came to our case. She was always there if we had a concern or a question. We would recommend Ashley and the law firm, Levin and Perconti, to anyone else. We would also come back with another case of our own if ever needed. The Gonzalez Family

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
