    I endorse this lawyer. Matt and I tried a jury case involving a Veteran. Matt gave one of the best opening and closing arguments I have ever seen in 24 years of practice as a trial lawyer. Matt has also obtained several favorable settlements for his clients over the years, especially our Veterans.
