Matthew E. Willis

“Matt was a true professional. While the situation was a tough one, Matt and I worked together as a team. He was very detailed and also made sure to add a little humor to cheer me up since I was so down on the situation.”      

                        --Erik Schneider

In private practice since 2001, Matt focuses on Personal Injury, Criminal Law, and Motor Vehicle Misdemeanors and Infractions. Matt’s desire to become a lawyer was cemented at age 13 during his first job: raking leaves and doing other chores for an attorney and probate court judge on Candlewood Lake, who challenged him to decide hypothetical cases. Matt’s passion for fairness and constitutional rights led him to focus on litigation. In reviews, clients most appreciate his listening skills, honesty, and clear communication. He balances out the intensity of litigation with fishing, motorcycling, and spending time outdoors.
