  • Peter Laurence Vladimir

    I just recently worked with Matt on a complex personal injury matter. Matt effectively and vigorously advocated for his client. He went the extra mile for his client by negotiating up the insurance company chain of command in this case. I highly recommend Matt to any one with a personal injury claim.
