Daley now works for the law firm of Katten, Muchin and Rosenmann. He took part in an announcement that the firm is opening a new office in Shanghai, China.
Afterwards Daley reminisced about his long marriage to Maggie Daley, who died on Thanksgiving.
"When I first met Maggie at a party, I knew I was going to marry her," Daley said. "About a year later we got married. And for 40 years, with children and everything, it was wonderful."
Daley says he misses what he used to do on Saturday as mayor: get out into the neighborhoods and meet people at public events.
