Matthew Willens

Matthew L. Willens, is an experienced, tenacious trial lawyer who fights for those who have been harmed by the negligence or legal fault of others. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum where membership is limited to trial attorneys who have obtained million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. In 2004, he was named one of the '40 Attorneys Under 40 in Illinois to Watch' by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company (an honor given to less than 1% of the lawyers in Illinois). He is also listed in Who's Who in American Law and Strathmore's Who's Who, publications that honor the best and brightest lawyers in the country.

Mr. Willens has a unique understanding of the dynamics and strategies of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases because he has had experience from both sides of the aisle. Before starting his own firm, he was a partner at Clifford Law Offices where he successfully litigated and tried a wide variety of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases on behalf of plaintiffs. Prior to that, he worked for a major insurance company where he coordinated and managed the strategic direction of million-dollar-plus cases. His knowledge of the defense industry is indispensable in prosecuting cases for individuals who have been victims of the fault of others.

Mr. Willens gives back to the legal profession as well. He has authored articles in legal periodicals and is a regular speaker at legal seminars throughout the country on various topics related to trial advocacy.
