Kent Mathewson profiled in Leading Lawyers as a leader in ophthalmology defense
August 28, 2018
Kent Mathewson was profiled in Leading Lawyers for his success as a professional liability, product liability and commercial litigation attorney.
In the piece titled, “Leading the Field in Ophthalmology Defense One Case at a Time,” Mr. Mathewson shares his career path to becoming a name partner at Donohue Brown Mathewson & Smyth and the valuable lessons he has learned along the way.
One of Mr. Mathewson’s opponents whom he recently went to trial against described him as “the kind of lawyer I would want if I needed someone to be on my side because he’s that good.”
Mr. Mathewson tried his first ophthalmology case in January 1993 which quickly resulted in him being sought after for similar cases. He has now handled more than 500 ophthalmology cases with more than 30 successful jury verdicts. He has also been involved in multiple high-profile cases in Illinois, some of which have resulted in changes in legislation, such as the Baseball Facility Liability Act.
