I work hard to meet the needs of my clients in a personal and compassionate way.  I have spent my entire career helping injured workers take on insurance companies and receive the benefits they deserve.  I also help consumers obtain much needed debt relief through bankruptcy.  I work directly with clients to stop creditors and bill collectors.

Serving the Community — Part of the Community

Founded by George Presbrey in 1948, Presbrey & Associates has always been committed to serving people in Illinois and throughout the suburbs of Chicago. Since the passing of Kim E. Presbrey – our managing partner in 2012, we have reorganized as Porro Niermann Law Group LLC.

Not only do we serve the community, we are part of the community. At our law firm, you will find attorneys who were born, raised, and who went to school here. We understand the wide range of legal problems that our neighbors face, and know how to navigate the local courts in order to resolve those problems. We are established in the local legal community as well, as our attorneys have served as leaders of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois State Bar Association and other important organizations.

One-On-One Representation From an Experienced Lawyer

Do you need help getting workers’ compensation for a work injury? Did you suffer a personal injury in a car accident or because of some other act of negligence? Are you considering bankruptcy to relieve your debt? Do you need to take action against an employer? Are you going through a divorce? Do you need help with real estate? Have you been arrested? Regardless of the legal challenge you are faced with, you have the right to a lawyer who will stand by your side from start to finish.

At our law firm, we pride ourselves on making certain that everyone we represent gets one-on-one representation. That means you will be able to meet face-to-face with your attorney. We will neither impose limits on the number of appointments you can have with your attorney, nor will we force you to fight through paralegals or secretaries to get to your attorney. You will be updated on your case’s progress at every turn, and we will always be accessible to you.
