About me

MATTHEW L. WILSON is a partner at Martin Law and has practiced Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law exclusively for more than 25 years. He started his career representing agencies with the City of Philadelphia, major insurance carriers and self-insured corporations. After Mr. Wilson’s affiliation with two major defense firms, he was recruited by his partners in 1993 to protect the rights of injured workers. He frequently lectures to other lawyers, doctors and insurance groups on workers’ compensation in a variety of subject areas. For the last 10 years he has co-authored the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s Workers’ Compensation Practice and Procedure Manual, which is known among attorneys and judges as the “bible” on workers’ compensation law.

Since 1997, Mr. Wilson has been a featured speaker at the biennial “Tough Problems in Workers’ Compensation” seminar. He has also presented multiple lectures at the spring and fall meetings of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Section as well as the statewide biannual practice and procedure program. Mr. Wilson has served on the Workers’ Compensation Law Section Council of the Pennsylvania Bar Association since 2007 and is currently the Chair of the organization. He is an active member of the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Associations as well as the Workplace Injury Litigation Group. Wilson was inducted into The College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in 2011. Mr. Wilson is a member of a committee that implemented and manages a ground breaking certification process for Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorneys. Most recently, Wilson was selected for a second time as an “Awesome Attorney” in the regional publication Suburban Life Magazine.
