Peter McNamara

Staff Attorney

International Union of Operation Engineers, Local 399

Peter Conrad McNamara serves as Staff Attorney for the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 399. He is its lead trial counsel and is adept in all phases of litigation: from pre-discovery motion practice to post-trial practice. He is a member of the trial bar of the Northern District of Illinois and is licensed to practice before the Seventh Circuit.

Mr. McNamara's experience spans both sides of the employment relationship. Prior to his current role, Mr. McNamara served as Chief Attorney, Labor & Employment for Chicago Transit Authority for five years and managed labor & employment matters for the Federal Aviation Administration for eight years. His legal journey began in 2007, with the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 150, championing employees and union rights. Beyond his advocacy, McNamara serves as an arbitrator for the Circuit Court of Cook County’s Mandatory Arbitration program.

Mr. McNamara is active in his adopted hometown of Park Ridge. He was the recipient of the 2019 Park Ridge Beautification Award, served as Chair of the Park Ridge Board of Fire & Police Commissioners, and has coached five-, six-, and seven-year-olds in Park Ridge Baseball. A first-generation American, with roots in Peru and Ireland, family comes first. His proudest titles are “father” to River (1), Isla (5), and Jack (8) and “husband” to Eva who lovingly, and not begrudgingly, supports his dream of one day breaking 80 in golf.

Mr. McNamara obtained his J.D. from Southern Illinois University School of Law, where he served as the Associate Editor of the Journal of Legal Medicine and his B.A. from DePaul University.
