From beginning to end of the case for which Matthew Krupnick was retained, he was not very responsive to any means of communication. Most times I tried to reach out to him regarding the progress of the trial, I rarely ever got responses until weeks or even a month after the fact.
I will not even attempt to consolidate 5+years of the case into a short story here. However I think it is important to point out that at the beginning of the case there was maybe Krupnick and his mother who is part of his firm working on the case, and then we had to retain what would be an additional 4 more attorney's brought on who all successively quit because of the lack of professionalism and preparedness that was shown by Mr. Krupnick. I tried very much to stay abreast of what was going on with the case and the new attorneys were a lot more communicative and let me know, but still nothing from Mr. Krupnick aside from the fact that these new attorneys would be coming on as co-counsel, which as I said did not last very long. There were several times when Matthew was not to be heard from by ANYONE and filing deadlines were missed for several of the other plaintiffs involved in the case and parts of their cases thrown out because Mr. Krupnick failed to file responses to the court in a timely manner.
Fast forward to today, 5+ years since the case began and a settlement has been reached between both sides and not with the help of Matthew Krupnick. He has been sitting on settlement funds for over 6 months now that belong to me and at least two other plaintiffs. He has had these funds since June of 2014 and says he has been negotiating to handle any outstanding liens that each plaintiff incurred during the run of the case (i.e. therapists sessions by a therapist he has worked with in the past and referred all of us to). He came to us with an original compromise that the therapist wanted over 6 months ago, then after repeated attempts to reach him to find out how the negotiations were going, he came back to us 6 months later with THE EXACT SAME OFFER. In 6 months there was no movement at all. As of today's date only one person has received their settlement money, a plaintiff who became a close personal friend to Matthew Krupnick during the run of the case. Matthew has promised that he has completed the paperwork and will get it to us along with the settlement checks and this promise was made on December 15, 2014! I am not sure what he is doing holding on to money that he is not entitled to when he has given one of the plaintiffs there money, what is stopping him from doing the same for the rest?
This is 100% accurate based on my recollection of how things went. I am not looking for anything more than to receive my settlement check and have been trying to do so for months and would LOVE to put an end to having anything ever to do with Matthew Krupnick.
If you are considering hiring an attorney and Matthew Krupnick is on your list, please reread this post and think long and hard before you make your decision. Nowadays it is extremely difficult to trust an attorney enough to put into their hands something that is very meaningful to you and in some cases could mean your livelihood. If you are not willing to take such a huge risk, I applaud you and say do your research and hire someone who doesn’t have a detailed description of how this particular individual chooses to work, or more so not work, and how he chooses to treat his clientele when he so fancies to communicate with them at all.
When I was arrested for a DUI, I felt alone, scared, and like I had no one to turn to. A friend recommended Matthew Krupnick and his firm and I took a chance and called. The moment I spoke to Matthew, I felt in my heart that things would be ok. Help me get through this humiliating process and got my serious DUI reduced to a Wet and Reckless (a much less serious charge). But it was the reassuring calm and confidence that Matthew had and the way he and his staff kept me informed and knowledgeable the entire time that really made the difference. I don't know how I would have done it without them. Thank you again L.A. LAW GROUP and Matthew Krupnick!
Matthew Krupnick is one of the few great attorneys left that not only cares about his clients, but will fight against anyone for his clients including taking them to trial to make sure justice is served. I would definitely recommend him to ANYONE!
Before Matthew and his firm started helping me with my legal issue, I thought I was going to just lay down and give up on everything. I was being torn apart by this mean and aggressive defense attorney, until, that is, I retained the Krupnick Firm and got to see why they call Matthew the Black Belt Litigator. He literally kicks butt, but does so in a prestigious, caring and protective way for his clients. He always said he thought of his clients as family, and I now understand what he means. He treats each client like part of his real family, taking their calls on weekends, coming to their rescue during emergencies, fighting uphill battles defying all odds, etc. Lawyers are NOT all bad people. We need more of them like Matthew to help restore their good names!
The attorneys and staff were knowledgeable and helpful, every in every step of the process. I couldn't have asked for a better firm to represent my legal affairs.
Matthew got me 5 times what my first lawyer said I could ever possibly get! He was so confident, aggressive, and talented, but he and his staff also kept me feeling comfortable and well informed the entire time. At the end, Matthew reduced his fees to make sure that, as he said, "I always make sure my clients make more money than I do". He lived up to every promise and I would recommend anyone, including the friends and family I have already sent to him (who are also very happy).
I can't begin to tell you how knowledgeable this lawyer is. He has handled numerous cases for me with the utmost professionalism and care. He has always treated me like family and I strongly urge anyone reading this to trust him with any and all legal matters. He is highly recommended.
Matthew and his staff, and especially Vivian, his partner and mom, made my legal nightmares go away. Matthew looks a lot younger than he is, so he was underestimated. But in the end, I got everything I wanted and then he even reduced his fees so I would get more money! Matthew is aggressive and fearless, but always made sure i waas aware and ok with every major move he made on my case. The fees were more than reasonable and everyone there was so nice and helpful. You would be making a big mistake by not contacting Matthew and his firm for your legal problems.
The Krupnick's have actually helped me on several occasions as after the first time, I realized I would never go to another lawyer besides them ever again. For starters (despite the fact that Matthew may go through sell phones quite often, just joking), both Matthew and Vivian gave me their cell phone numbers. No matter when I called, they took the time to put me at ease as I was very nervous at first with my legal problem (an unlawful detainer). Matt's aggressive and confident style put me at ease as it was clear from the beginning that besides looking young, he was a true pro. The Krupnick Firm is my law firm for life, and anyone not with them should at the very least go meet with Matthew or Vivian. You will quickly see the difference from most lawyers.
I have never sued for a personal injury before, but this time I got into an auto accident for which I DEFINITELY needed representation. My boss referred Mr. Krupnick to me and what was great was my first impression: I got to speak directly to an attorney and was quickly informed as to my rights and expectations. Within a couple of short months, they completely delivered!
