Why Choose Us?

Over 30 Years of Experience
Handling Personal Injury Matters

Matt's success as an insurance defense lawyer actually prompted him to change his career focus and go to work representing injured people.

I can't stand bullies. I discovered, when I did insurance defense work, that insurance companies were in a position to take advantage of people whose lives had been turned upside down because of the wrongful conduct of insured policy holders. While I had success in the courtroom on behalf of our insurance company clients, it left me convinced I was working for the wrong side. After winning a case I should not have won, I quit my job and went to work representing injured people. I vowed that I would never again represent an insurance company.

Matt continues:

People come to us having suffered tragic, horrendous harms and losses. I frequently see people whose entire lives, and the lives of their families, have been devastated by someone else's wrongful conduct. These wrongdoers are almost always represented by insurance companies. That's where we come in. We're able to level the playing field and to make sure that no one we represent is going to get pushed around or exploited by an insurance company.
