Mr. Matteson is an exemplary attorney that I would not hesitate to refer to anyone and everyone. He provides excellent and informed answers here on Avvo. I have been a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, law professor, and private attorney over the past 24 years and I still regularly learn new aspects about the law from his answers.

It's my pleasure to endorse Joel. He is known for being an extremely effective, intelligent and organized advocate for his clients. Months ago, Joel helped a personal injury client obtain a $1.3 million verdict against an insurance company for their bad faith litigation. I regularly seek Joel's assistance on ALL civil matters I undertake, no matter how small or large. His watchful eye and knowledge of court rules pulls a fine-tooth comb through various legal issues affecting our client's litigation. I'm proud to work with him.

Relationship: Supervised lawyer

I endorse this lawyer's work. I hired Mr. Matteson just over one year ago to work in the Personal Injury Department of Tario & Associates. Over 100 attorneys applied for the position. I and my staff carefully interviewed six of the most qualified applicants. We hired Joel for many reasons too numerous to mention here. Over the last year Joel has proven to us and our clients just how insightful, hard working, and bright he really is. He has become a key attorney working diligently on our personal injury cases. Joel is a team player, a backbone of what we do to help our clients, and he is a strong advocate of Tario & Associates helping our firm vindicate the rights of our personal injury clients. Joel never drops the ball, always follows through, and finishes what needs to be done with excellent results. With Joel working on your case you can rest assured that it is done right.

Other people have spoken of Joel's abilities as a personal injury attorney. I want to praise his "client management skills." He has the sensitivity to know when a client is being overwhelmed with information, is feeling ignored, or just doesn't understand the process or procedures. Joel takes the time to explain things to them in plain English so they understand why he needs information, why he needs some answers now while other answers can wait... It is amazing to see a client walk in scared and frustrated, leave the office calm and organized... and leave the settlement conference satisfied. Joel's a good attorney, but he has a special talent for "client management."
