Perfect Service
My wife used Matt on a very difficult personal injury case involving slipping on ice. He clearly pointed out ahead of time that it would be a challenge The first impression we got of Matt Newborn was that of a down-to-earth, honest and professional attorney. He was someone with which you could immediately feel comfortable. He was very detailed oriented and left no stone unturned. However, one of his biggest attributes was that he kept my wife and I well informed. Communication is very important to us. That communication provided us an extra layer of comfort. Needless to say we received a very respectable settlement. Would we use him again? Absolutely!

Matt is the both kind and highly professional.
I was referred to Matt by my chiropractor, concerning a car accident and the resulting whiplash medical care that I received. Matt explained the logistical details of collecting medical bills and communicating with the insurance company so that it made perfect sense to me. He moved very quickly while keeping me in the loop of the various stages of the process. Within weeks he completed a settlement that was in the range we had discussed at our first meeting. I would highly recommend Matt - Thank you Matt!

Highly Recommend Newborn Law!
I contacted Matthew Newborn about a potential case. He was very patient and kind and listened to my story in detail, providing great guidance and advice. He was so professional and knowledgeable. I didn't end up needing an attorney but would have hired Newborn Law if needed. I highly recommend Matthew Newborn.

A Kind and Caring Person and Lawyer
Matthew Newborn is the most Helpful and Caring lawyer I've never had the opportunity to hire. AMaZiNg, Selfless person! We had been searching for the help of a lawyer and had Newborn Law on our shortlist. After contacting and sharing our details with Attorney Newborn, we learned that he was unable to represent us. Instead of just saying, 'good-bye and good luck' to us, Matthew continued our conversation, sharing his ideas and thoughts on our problem and helping us to brainstorm. I was truly amazed that we were being shown such care and compassion. Finally having attained a sense of clarity as to our direction, we said, 'Thankyou and Goodbye' to Matthew. A few days later, I received an email from Matthew containing information he felt would help us further. He had kept us in his thoughts!!! How WoNDeRFuL! We can only imagine the incredible care, attention and results we would have received had we had the opportunity to hire Matthew Newborn as our attorney!! We feel grateful for your help and care Matthew despite your never being our attorney! Sincerely, J : )

Straight forward and honest
I had an accident related concussion with relatively small medical bills. Matt was very clear about what kind of settlement to expect based on medical expenses incurred. He did not promise the moon or create any kind of false expectation in an effort "win" my business. He is professional, tells it like it is, and honest. Matt and his staff were extremely prompt in getting back to me and dealing with any contact from insurance companies. Despite my claim being on the small side, he gave freely of his time to answer all my questions. He is also just a really nice guy! I would not hesitate to recommend Newborn Law.

Auto accident
I went to Matt after I had been in an auto accident. I had forgotten all about it when Matt called me to let me know a settlement had been reached. And for me to approve. Even after I had forgotten about it Matt was still working on this for me.

Non-Intimidating , Professional, Friendly
The 3 adjectives I used above are not normally associated with attorneys but in my case, these are very accurate. From the first time I met Matt to discuss my case and potential options, he was very approachable. He kept me informed every step of the way and always responded to my phone calls or email messages very quickly. I did not feel like a $$ amount to him but that he cared about what would be best for me. From beginning to end, he and his staff were very helpful. Thank you!

Workman Comp Injury
What can I say about Matt Newborn? An amazing Lawyer who had so MUCH patience with me. I'm a deaf woman who had suffered an injury at work. Matt helped me so MUCH trying to explain what would happen to me down the road, the laws of workman comp and all that jazz. He REALLY took his time to made sure I understand because I can read English very well but the lawyer terms make it harder but he made time to type long emails for me to understand. He is ONE number Lawyer and I would recommend you all to contact him if you need one of the best. Matthew Newborn is one of the BEST workman comp lawyer. Thank you SOOOOOOO much for everything. Not just a lawyer, he supported me through this rough journey of mine. Thank you again. :) Jill~

Awesome experience in a stressful time
Matt Newborn represented me in an auto accident claim. He was very informative and put me at ease right away. He kept me well informed during this long process and was able to explain everything in easy to understand terms. His office staff was also very nice and attentive.

The best around
Matt Newborn handled my automobile accident case 3 years ago. Matt went out of his way every way he could to make sure I was treated fairly and taken care of to the best of his ability. I was very lucky to have a lawyer like him on my side. Matt will be my first recommendation to anyone in need of an injury lawyer.

Slip and fall /broke wrist
I had slipped and fell on the ice of my apartment driveway and broke my wrist. Matt Newborn was very knowledgeable and explained the steps I needed to take with great clarity. Matt was quick with the actions he took. He responded quickly anytime I called for questions and kept me informed every step of the way through the whole process. I was pleased with how quick I got my settlement. Thank you so much Matt Newborn

I have to say in my case Matthew was right ontop of things. He kept me informed we spoke at least once to twice a week. If he was not able to talk to me My call was returned by the end of the night of that day.He came to me when I was unable to go to him. I would highly recommend!

An attorney that really cares about you as a friend!
Matthew is a great attorney. He really took good care of my case. He suggested the best doctors and physical therapist to help me recover from my car accident injuries. He is always there for you. He returns emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. He is really a VERY GOOD attorney.

Excellent job on my accident / injury case
Matt Newborn represented me in an auto accident where the other party was at fault, taking over my case at the last minute from an attorney who had been unsatisfactory in many ways. Matt picked up the ball quickly, acquired all of the needed medical and other information, and assisted me with filling out necessary forms. He estimated the amount of the offer from the other party quite accurately, negotiated it up a bit, and kept me informed regularly on the status of the case and expected timetable. His personality was pleasant and cordial, and his administrative staff made sure that I had all the relevant documents promptly. Matt called me regularly and responded within 24 hours every time I had reason to call him. He completely met my expectations in all areas. I would recommend him to anyone with a case in one of his areas of expertise. In my work I deal regularly with many attorneys, and I have not worked with any better.

A lawyer dignified and trustworthy
Matt was an blend of warm cordiality and strong legal expertise. Communication was excellent; concise, clear and up to date e-mails and phone conversations. Matt was exceptionally knowledgeable on compensation law and was able to explain in detail how it applied in my case. He was fully present and focused when engaging me to discuss my case. I always felt respected and that Matt was putting my best interests first. I believe I received a fair and just settlement based on my injury and the circumstances surrounding it. His support team (legal secretary) was also very professional and kind. My final comment is that I consider Matt Newborn a friend. I highly recommend his service as a lawyer.
