Amazing representation
I'm so thankful for Matt and his team! I would have gone insane dealing with all the doctors, lawyers, insurance companies, and adjusters if not for them. My case lived up to the expectations that the other side will try to screw you every step of the way; but whenever an issue arose Matt, Tiffany, and Kelsey were always there to answer my calls or respond to emails...even late in the evening or on the weekend. I could be a pain at times, but they were always ready to fight when an issue needed to be corrected. Can't say enough great things about them! Thank you Matt, Tiffany, and Kelsey for all your hard work and getting me a life-changing settlement. You guys are the best!

Automobile Accident
Trollinger Law came recommended to me because of their excellent service. I highly recommend them to others as well. I’ve never had a reason for representation in the past and was not seeking litigation due to a recent auto accident. When the other insurance company was not willing to be fair to me, I was pleased to find Matt Trollinger. His team of professionals were prompt and helpful every step of the way. They listened to my concerns, were sympathetic to my injuries, and took my case seriously. Their expertise and knowledge of Maryland law put my mind at ease. Mr. Trollinger and his entire team are above reproach and the epitome of professionalism.

Great Representation
Matthew was great ! A mutual party referred me to him after I was involved in a car accident. Matthew and his staff were very attentive and stayed in touch throughout the whole process. I was involved in a work related car accident and required lengthy follow-up medical care. They never stopped helping me and made sure my settlement was what I deserved. His paralegals are very responsive and made sure they checked in often for updates. I would highly recommend him.

Matt, is a type attorney that seems more like a close friend. He puts all your concerns at ease with his calm demeanor. The Consistency and persistence that he showed on my worker’s compensation case was outstanding! We sometime conversed daily in a weekly scheduled telephone conference & unscheduled calls. Matt Staff, was just as consistent on freed back to my calls & emails. Great group of people to have on any team. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TROLLINGER LAW to Represent you on any of his listed case service's!!!

Matt's a thoughtful and understanding attorney who is easy to work with. He's knowledgeable and competent in his field of work, and more than capable of meeting your legal needs. My case was...to put it plainly...a pain in the butt! But Matt allowed me to have my fall out moments, and he kept it moving. As a bonus...Tiffany...his paralegal, is simply a wonderful person to work with also. She's very down-to-earth and professional...and she also has a playful side to her too...lol! I fully recommend Trollinger Law to anyone seeking an attorney and staff that will follow through and be attentive to your needs.

Personal Injury
Matt and his Staff were helpful and attentive throughout this entire process. I am hopeful to never have another Personal Injury for the result of an automobile accident but if I do, I will retain Trollinger Law.

Excellent Attorney
I was fortunate enough to have Mr. Trollinger take my personal injury case in April 2016. He and his staff did a great job in making sure I received timely medical care and in representing me. Since then, I have called on Mr. Trollinger for legal advice and representation and have received the same high quality care. I highly recommend this excellent attorney!

An attorney with Integrity
I had an auto accident August 2017. I was injured, my car totaled, and had no idea what to do. I was referred to Matt and was told that he would work hard for me. I met with Matt and immediately felt at ease. He and his staff took care of me from day one. They answered my questions, made sure my back wages and medical bills were paid. Matt communicated with me throughout my case and explained how the insurance companies process worked. I received a fair settlement and I know I couldn't have done this with out Trollinger Law Firm.

Above and Beyond
Matthew helped get my medical bills covered after I was in a fender bender. At first, I did not think it was a big issue so I did not get the proper info from the other driver. But I ended up needing to go to the chiropractor for over a month. Matthew was able to find the other driver and their insurance, even though I did not get the full information. He was able to get all of my medical bills payed quickly. He answered every question I had, and guided me to the best situation.

Relieved and Happy
Almost a year after my accident - I was left dealing with the headache of the bills, the phone calls from the insurance companies, and the settlement paperwork - so I decided to talk with Trollinger Law. It was a wonderful decision and I couldn't have been happier with the process of it all. From the consultation to the personal phone calls of him explaining what was going on and the next steps he was truly professional and sincere. In only four months my case is closed now and I can move on. Thank you Matt! :-)

Simply the best!
Mr. Trolling went above and beyond representing my Father after an auto accident while on the job. He drove out to Virginia to meet with my dad, in person, while he was in rehab. He had my father's best interests while representing him. After the claims process was complete, he still continues to follow up and check in with my father to make sure that his workers comp claim is going well and to his satisfaction. I can't thank Matt enough for all he has done and continues to do. If you need legal help, I can't recommend Matt Trollinger enough.

Worker's Compensation
I had a worker's compensation claim and this was my first time experiencing representation from an attorney. Matt made it simple and easy. He made sure I understood the process well and explained it to me in easily understood language so I felt confident with the case. He genuinely cared about my well-being as well as our case. We won our case and I couldn't be happier with the result. Great guy and great attorney. I'll definitely call him if I ever need legal representation in the future.
