“I provide legal services to individuals and small business in civil cases in Illinois.” – Matthew R. Bolon
Established in 1998, Chilton Yambert Porter trial attorneys bring nationally recognized litigation experience and cost effective legal representation to a broad, regional client base. They focus their litigation practice in the defense of wrongful death, personal injury and commercial litigation in state and federal courts across the country, as well as through alternative dispute resolution proceedings and in 2016, they broadened our scope by creating both a Corporate and Environmental Practice Group, serving clients within the food and beverage, chemical, transportation, manufacturing and general business services industries. At Chilton Yambert Porter, their philosophy is different from other litigation firms. They strongly believe that when a case is well prepared for trial by the experienced defense attorney who will actually try the case – and the opponent knows that the defense is ready to proceed to trial – the possibility is maximized for the most favorable resolution of the case for their client.
Matthew R. Bolon a Senior Associate at the firm, provides legal services to individuals and small businesses and has tried dozens of civil and criminal cases in Illinois.
