Matthew L. Hess has handled thousands of insurance claims and hundreds of lawsuits over the past eleven years. Before becoming an attorney he worked for one of the nation’s largest multi-line insurance carriers where he learned just how poorly insurance companies treat the victims of their insured’s negligence. He also learned how to beat them at their own game.
Mr. Hess has won numerous awards and accolades for trial advocacy and alternative dispute resolution and is a 2017-2021 “Super Lawyer” and “Rising Star” as awarded by Super Lawyers magazine.
Mr. Hess firmly believes that being an attorney is a privilege that comes with great responsibility which is why he has provided countless hours of free (pro-bono) legal service through the Northwest Suburban Bar Association and has been the Pro-Bono Committee Chairman for over four years.
Matt is a resident of Hoffman Estates and has lived there for over 40 years. He is often at Fabbrini Park with his wife Jennifer, his daughters, Madilyn and Mariah, and their dog, Lily.
