Willens Named a 2013 Illinois Super Lawyer

January 22, 2013 / in / Written by Matthew Willens

Matthew L. Willens has been named a 2013 Illinois Super Lawyer, an honor only given to the top 5% of Illinois lawyers. The selection process works as follows: Ballots were sent to thousands of lawyers throughout Illinois. These lawyers were asked to vote for who they considered to be the very best lawyers in the state of Illinois. Each candidate’s record was reviewed to assure good standing with the Illinois Supreme Court. The attorneys under consideration were then reviewed by a blue ribbon panel. Not only did Willens receive this honor, but he ranked at the very top of the list in the 2013 Illinois Super Lawyers nomination, research and blue ribbon review process. As an Illinois Super Lawyer, Matthew L. Willens has been recognized by his peers as being outstanding in his profession.

Willens has had quite a decorated career as a personal injury lawyer but when asked about the many awards and accolades Willens has received over the years, he will often quote Abraham Lincoln and say, “Honor is better than honors.” When asked about what he did to gain the recognition and respect of his peers to achieve this status as an Illinois Super Lawyer, Willens simply said, “My job.”
