Matthew Ports has dedicated his entire career representing those killed and injured by the negligence of others. Matt started working with Bruce Pfaff immediately out of law school and became partners with Bruce and Mike in January 2008. Matt regularly represents the victims of medical malpractice, defective products, construction negligence, auto collisions and other unsafe or dangerous conditions. He has prosecuted cases in both state and federal court and represented plaintiffs throughout the Chicagoland area, many of Cook County's collar counties and throughout Central Illinois, including Peoria and Tazewell Counties.
