Matthew D. Ports was recently elected to be a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He joins his fellow shareholders, Bruce Pfaff and Michael Gill, as members in the premier national trial lawyer's organization.
Membership is by invitation only and requires the applicant to have tried a significant number of cases to verdict and to be a credit to the trial bar. We are very proud of Matt's accomplishment and professional recognition.
There are one hundred members of ABOTA in Illinois and we count it as a great distinction that all three shareholders in the firm have been elected into ABOTA. The organization is dedicated to preserving and promoting the right to trial by jury in civil cases and to advance professional standards of ethics and trial techniques.
