Champaign Attorney Deb Feinen Joins ATG as Vice President-Downstate Operations
Deborah Frank Feinen, attorney and Champaign mayor, was recently named vice president of downstate operations for Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund, Inc. (ATG).
Feinen brings more than 25 years' experience in the profession to her new role as the top leader for ATG’s downstate operations, including more than a decade as an active ATG member agent. Her law practice in Champaign-Urbana included real estate, estate planning and administration, guardianship, business law, and school law. Feinen said the ATG position offers her new challenges, as well as the opportunity to continue her local relationships with lawyers, real estate agents, and lenders, while meeting new people in other areas of the state. She follows in the footsteps of Jerry Gorman, former senior vice president of ATG’s downstate operations, who retired in early 2019 after 37 years at ATG.
As a Champaign resident for more than 45 years, she has served on various boards in the community, including Montessori School of Champaign-Urbana and Amasong, and as a liaison to the Developmental Disabilities Board.
Feinen holds a J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law, and a bachelor's degree in psychology and education from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. She is a member of the Champaign County Bar Association, Champaign County Chamber of Commerce, Illinois State Bar Association, Champaign County Association of Realtors, Affiliate Member, and U.S. Conference of Mayors.
