Vincenzo Caporale, a native Chicagoan, grew up on the South Side and is passionate about serving disadvantaged communities throughout his city. He is a fierce advocate for civil rights and victims of police misconduct, and is committed to achieving justice for his clients by holding officers accountable for their actions.
Prior to joining Kulis Law, Vincenzo interned at Uptown People’s Law Center, a bastion for prisoners’, tenants’, and disabled rights. While there, he worked on two federal class action lawsuits against the Illinois Department of Corrections to ensure that prisoners are provided adequate healthcare.
Following that internship, Vincenzo was a student clinician at the UIC John Marshall Law School’s Community Enterprise & Solidarity Economy Clinic, where he drafted an instructional guide for prisoner entrepreneurship in partnership with the Chicago chapter of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee.
Apart from his work as an attorney at Kulis Law, Vincenzo is an Associate Board Member of Lawyers for the Creative Arts, a nonprofit organization connecting artists with attorneys on a pro bono basis. Additionally, he is a Community Representative for Alderwoman Susan Sadllowski Garza’s 10th Ward Office, where he worked on several participatory budgeting campaigns. He also volunteers with Chicago Help Initiative, serving meals to the city’s homeless.
As a community activist and attorney, Vincenzo aspires to use the law to affect social change in big and small ways. For those who cannot, Vincenzo is devoted to fighting the good fight.
