  • Chloe Anne Schor

    I endorse this lawyer. While I was still in the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, I had many opportunities to observe Matt advocate for his clients as opposing counsel. He is professional, knowledgeable, and passionate. I have also seen first-hand how meticulous he is in his work. He always does everything he can for each and every one of his clients to ensure the best possible outcome.
