In September 2015, 29 year-old Jeremy Heckelsmiller was hired to remove a chimney on a rental property in DeKalb when the upper boom arm of the lift he was working on suddenly snapped and threw Heckelsmiller to the ground. Plaintiff brought claims against the owner and operator of the lift and the owner of the rental property who arranged for the work to be done.

Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. Attorneys Named 2017 Leading Lawyers

Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. is pleased to announce that shareholders Bruce R. Pfaff, Michael T. Gill, and Matthew D. Ports were selected as 2017 Leading Lawyers for Illinois. Leading Lawyers, a division of the Law Bulletin Media, helps legal consumers identify experienced, reputable attorneys by practice area, with less than 5% of licensed lawyers in Illinois receiving the distinction. The selection process is unique and more rigorous than other attorney search sites, beginning with a survey that asks all licensed lawyers in the state who they would recommend to a family member or friend if they were unable to take the case themselves. Only lawyers most often recommended by their peers make the list. In the crowded and competitive field of legal services, it is an honor to be recognized and respected by our peers and colleagues in the Illinois legal community. Thank you.
