First off I want you to know I been working since I was 11yrs old because we were very poor. I got into OWA and OWE work programs in High School also plus I took Automotive Technicians my Junior and Senior years. I got into Aviation in 1985 as a Junior A/P mechanic and got my A/P license in 1991 I worked for the same Company 2 days shy of 26yrs. I was awarded employee of the year several times for my hard work so when I hurt my back severely on the job I had no idea what to do I figured my Company would stand by my side like I did them. After 6 months on 20mg Oxycontin, 10mg Oxycodone, 4mg of Tizanidine and Workmens Comp doctors treating me for a hernia the fired me 1 day after Workmen Comp doctors pencil whipped me a clean bill of health. I was devastated I was so depressed I was suicidal which was devastating for me as a volunteer minister and a Christian. I had to quit youth ministry after I got hurt and now my Company fired me unjustly. I had a friend who got hurt a few years before and Fendon Law Firm was helping him. I called Matt and I broke down crying on the phone he told me to hang in there buddy don't give up. In September of 2011 Matt got my workcomp case reopened. I'm still a client because I'm still under doctors treatment for a permanent work injury my life will never be the same and I live on pain killers the rest of my life. I thank the good Lord for sending me too the right Firm they truly are amazing and I told Matt mom one day Jesus is Lord and she said yes He is. I knew then I was in good hands.

I do recommend Mr. Fendon in these types of cases, he did Great in my case. What I was suprised by most is how much the insurance company's will lie and try to go to any length to get out of their responsibility. Insurance Doctor's don't fare much better but, look who they work for. All in all Matt did well above average. (GREAT)

After struggling on my own for almost a year in a Worker's Compensation claim for medical treatment, I contact Matt Fendon for help. He was courteous from the beginning and has promptly answered all my questions at that have arisen. The staff at the office has also been very patient and helpful as well. Within a couple few months, the claim was resolved to my satisfaction due to Matt's professionalism and expertise. I would highly recommend him and his firm. He has given me back my life.

Matt has been handing a Worker's Compensation claim on my behalf relating to a fractured fibia, tibia and ankle. In addition, he has represented me for a torn rotator cuff injury which occurred at the same time of the aforementioned injury, but Worker's Compensation personnel declined. In June of this year, The Industrial Commission of Arizona ruled in favor of accepting liability for the rotator cuff injury. Matt has been very responsive in matters relating to my case and has proved to be very knowledgeable and trustworthy...excellent communication skills when appearing before the Defendant and the Judge.

I had a horrible industrial accident and almost lost both life and limb.
When my original adjuster quit working for Workman’s comp, I got assigned a new adjuster. She did everything possible to put one stumbling block after another in front of the care I desperately needed to get better. I was exhausted from my near-death ordeal, multiple surgeries and the constant battle with W/C. It was just too much for me.
I came to Matt after trying to go it alone. Once he got on board, my adjuster started to work on my case and approve doctors’ requests. When W/C tried to underpay me while claiming that I had been overpaid, Matt’s staff got them on the right track and I got my correct payment. He also stood by me whenever W/C tried to pull something funny and went with me to all my legal appointments. He knows some of the best, most caring doctors around. His staff tracks my medical appointments and makes sure that the doctors’ offices have all the information they need before I arrive. Matt has actively followed my recovery progress – even contacting doctors to make sure things are going well.
Matt and his staff genuinely care about his clients and want them to get better. He is very knowledgeable and has been able to steer me through this maze of paperwork and legal hoop jumping. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking at an uphill battle with W/C and all their dirty tricks.

I got hurt on the job after 25yrs of service my Company fired me after a workmen comp doctor pencil whipped me a clean bill of health even after I told them I was suffering from moderate to severe back, hip and leg pain. Matt talked to me on the phone several times telling me he would help me when I was ready. He took my case and got my case reopened. I prob have one of the worst workmen comp insurance known to all law firms. Matt and his team continue to fight for me tooth and nail to make the insurance accountable. I know most of Matt family by first name bases and have met all of the staff at one time or another. Matt told me in the very beginning he hates to lose cases and I know he puts in long hours and makes extreme sacrifices to do what is right for his clients. He is straight forward guy and he will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. God Bless the Fendon Law Firm they are a great class of people you want on your side when times are tough.

I went to Mr. Fenton's office and meant with someone other then Mr. Fenton. I had all my medical records, MRI's and all other material they had asked me to have for my meeting. I was asked after being told the associate meant with Mr. Fenton I would need to spend at least $2000 to see specialist for my spine and shoulder. Even though my MRI's clearly show injuries to both my neck and shoulder I was told it would be easier for the firm to fight my denial by using their doctors to state once again my injuries is due to my fall at work and not prexisting conditions.
I felt like my claim was not worth enough for Mr. Fenton's firm to fight for me. I think the Insurance Company that denied my claim may be to tough for them to fight for me. The Insurance Company's attorneys has a "BULL DOG" name for themselves. I think there was not enough money for my case for Mr. Fenton's firm to want to fight for me. What happened to the days where people would fight for people? I know my case is not a huge money maker. I have been in serious pain since the injury and the MRI's show I have injuries. The Insurance company is blaming my injuries on prexisting conditions, which I think is another reason why Mr. Fenton's firm decided my claim would be to much work for the compensation they would receive. Very disappointed no one fight's for the man that has always worked hard and when in need the most, help is not here for me.

I have had 3 different work related injuries and I don't kno what I would have done without Matt. There were so many doctor's involved and Matt explained what was happening at each step in the process, for example, what hearings were going on, if I did or did not have to attend, the end results, etc. I was always aware of what was going on in all of my cases.

I can't say enough about how great of a job Matthew Fendon did on my case. This was my first time needing a lawyer and I did not know what to expect. I got the best. MR. Fendon made sure I was kept informed and what to expect throughout the process. I never felt at anytime that I was just being told what I wanted to hear or that I was being told something that was not true. I highly recommend Matthew Fendon to all. Your truley in good hands with Matt Fendon.

Mr. Fendon is a respectable and experienced wokers' compensation attorney in Arizona. Although he takes cases similar to my firm, we associate in complex matters involving bad faith and I refer him all of my northern Arizona potential clients. His firm refers us his southern Arizona clients.

Matt and the Firm have made me feel personally cared for and give my case/claim above average attention.

Matt Fendon is the best worker's compensation lawyer I have ever dealt with. I have had several attorneys in the past, and none of them come close to him. He always returned my calls within 24 hours. His staff was very friendly and knowledgable. He really knows the law very well. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a worker's compensation lawyer.
