Arlington Heights officials have hired a group of lawyers who were mentored by the late, longtime village attorney Jack Siegel to be their new legal advisers.

The village board Monday night confirmed Mayor Tom Hayes’ appointment of Elrod Friedman, LLC and partner Hart Passman as the new village attorney.

The Chicago-based firm formed earlier this year out of the municipal and land use division of Holland & Knight’s Chicago office — the firm where the legendary Siegel was working until his death in 2014. Siegel spent more than a half century as village attorney in Arlington Heights and Schaumburg.
