The firm’s founder, Attorney Matthew Willens, is recognized nationally and by the Illinois legal community as the Best of the Best Personal Injury Lawyers in Illinois. For instance, nationally, he has been selected for membership in the National Association of Distinguished Counsel – The Nation’s Top One Percent of Attorneys.
