My former employer fired me shortly after I told management I had cancer. I got referred to Matt Crotty. Matt did a great job working up my case. Ultimately Matt determined that my company probably violated state age and disability discrimination laws, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the COBRA statute. Matt's investigation also revealed that the company's deduction of business loss from my wages likely violated Washington wage law. Matt was able to work with the company in getting the matter resolved. I would recommend Matt to anyone with a discrimination or wage related claim.

Matt has helped me periodically over the past few years. Always stellar work, and insightful analysis. Last month I saw him deliver his closing arguments in Federal Court for an employment discrimination jury trial. While usually I'm pretty skeptical of 'discrimination claims', I was totally entranced with Matt's closing. With a very detailed, powerful presentation, Matt led the jury (and I found myself reacting as well) to the only possible conclusion. It was as if he dropped bread crumbs for all of us to follow.
Matt's representation of his client was not only professional, but he obviously cared deeply for his client. He was truly fighting like his own life was on the line. Persuasive, articulate, passionate, and clear.
I know who I want in my corner representing me. Matt Crotty. Without a doubt.

Matthew advised me fully and thoroughly on USERRA law as well as applicable state provisions of law as I entered the military. Matthew's expertise in this area is fantastic and he helped ensure, as a Reservist in the Armed Forces, that I received full benefits from my civilian employer while on active duty. Matthew was prompt and accurate in his legal advise and I highly recommend his services.

Matt worked tirelessly on my behalf to settle a USERRA case against a Fortune 500 company. Throughout the process I knew he was dedicating his time to the case and I was never left "in the dark". Matt guided me through the complex process and never made promises he could not keep. He is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have met and/or worked with in my long career. It is refreshing to have an attorney work this hard toward a fair and acceptable settlement. Even though I was not, I always felt that I was Matt's only client. That is a sign of quality communication skills and adept knowledge of the law. I recommend Matt without reservation.

Matt was part of a team that represented me in a USERRA case involving a large company and large insurance. Because Matt has experience of being on both sides of litigation he brought an interesting dynamic to the table that provided insight and help me in making decisions especially in the latter parts of the case. The team and him are very knowledgeable on veterans laws and protections and being that they are all veterans it really helped in the communication section, they all understood where i was coming from. I could not have had a better team. Very grateful for your hard work and dedication Mr. Crotty, thank you.

I had a North Idaho wrongful termination case against a Fortune 500 company. It involved state and federal claims such as: ADEA (Age Discrimination), ADA (Disability), FLSA Collective Action (Wages, Overtime and Retaliation), Breach of Contract and more.
I searched everywhere for an attorney and all I could find were money-mongers, or those who lacked the skill or desire to take on this company. I finally found Matt.
My wife and I were given a contingency fee agreement that was easy to understand. Within three months Matt put together a team of attorneys who deposed the Defendants, filed a collective action (similar to class action), and filed for Partial Summary Judgment.
Most attorneys seem distant and disinterested in the client's need for communication. Not so with Matt; he provided daily updates to ask my advice. How rare.
Matt was up-to-date on the law and thorough in his preparation for trial. His motions were well-briefed and case law on point. His taking of depositions and witness gathering were strategic and gave us the tools to resolve our issues within 6 months.
As a military man Matt is disciplined, fearless, and a defender of the law. He loves to right wrongs and defend the little guy who's been taken advantage of during this economic downturn.
I'm a fan of this man who, months ago, was a stranger. So, if you are looking for legal help, you need look no farther.

After working with a few attorneys in my life, I have to say that Matthew Crotty is one of a kind. I was honored enough to watch him in the courtroom, and found him to be articulate, knowledgeable and tremendously compassionate. He dealt with my employment case flawlessly. If you are looking for a good attorney, look no further!

Matt represented me in a USERRA suit against a large employer who was defended by a large hundred-lawyer multinational law firm. During the course of the lawsuit Matt's work ethic, the quality of his work, his communication with me, his initiative, and his understanding of the Law were Outstanding. Matt was head and shoulders more knowledgeable of the USERRA statute than the opposing firm, and his work product, presentation, and professionalism were of the absolute highest quality and were never even remotely approached by the opposing firm. Even though the opposing firm was able to spend their way thru litigation with zero concern for simply doing what was fair and right, Matt remained calm and focused and was able to deliver me a good result. I'd recommend Matt without question to any individual seeking resolution with their employer, and any Service Member involved in a USERRA complaint would be well served by having Matt on their side.

Matthew went way beyond what was expected. He gave up precious family time to make sure that I was informed and taken care of. I was never out of the loop, and he made sure that I understood his perspective and that it was also the perspective that I had. Because of his military background, he is uniquely qualified to not only represent the soldier and combat veteran, but to understand the unique stressors that combat vets face as they return home. Not only would I use Matt again, but I would go to war with him, Thats how much I trust him.
