Mrs. Agee joined the Law Offices of Dennis G. Gianopolus, P.C. in 2003 as a 711 associate and later joined as a full fledged member of the bar in 2004. Her main areas of concentration include municipal prosecution and municipal litigation. Her litigation expertise in the realm of municipal law relates primarily to property matters. Mrs. Agee has developed a practice area that allows her to counsel her municipal clients on matters of municipal property, including but not limited to demolition matters, foreclosure of municipal liens, acquisition of property through county entities, zoning matters and the myriad of tax issues that arise relative to municipal property issues. Mrs. Agee is also a Certified Administrative Hearing Officer who actively presides over the hearings of municipal ordinance violations in said capacity, a position that makes her uniquely knowledgeable in the creation of administrative ordinances as well.

Before becoming a legal practitioner, Mrs. Agee enjoyed a four year career as a Police Officer in the City of Chicago Heights. Her accolades while there include receiving a commendation from the American Police Hall of Fame as well as several departmental commendations. She furthermore holds the distinction of Certified Accident Investigator. Perhaps the most valuable aspect of having been a Police Officer, Mrs. Agee obtained extensive court room experience to which she attributes her present ability to command proceedings when before the bench.

Mrs. Agee's expertise also extends into the realm of unemployment law. She has had extensive experience in preparing responses to requests for unemployment benefits, and she has participated in hearings both in person and via telephone regarding the administration of the unemployment system, furthering Mrs. Agee's proven skill and ability as a well rounded Municipal counselor.

Mrs. Agee received her formal legal training at The John Marshall Law School, in Downtown Chicago. While there, Mrs. Agee was able to maintain grades that placed her in the top 20 percent of her graduating class. An avid student, she participated in many extracurricular academic programs, including the Moot Court Honor Program Council, the International Accelerated Trial Advocacy Program in Dublin, Ireland, and she was a writer on the Journal of Computer and Information Law. While studying law, her article, The Importance of the Passive Alcohol Sensor in the Fight Against Drunk Driving and the Constitutional Concerns This Technology Has Brought With It, was recommended for publication. Mrs. Agee also holds the distinction of being placed on the Dean's Honor List for six separate semesters while at the John Marshall Law School. Her achievements as a student of the law have certainly shown through in her skills as a practitioner of the law.
