As an attorney, I am passionate about two things: solving problems and delivering results. I take pride in doing both with integrity, tenacity, and an unflagging commitment to my core guiding principles. My principles include always doing what I say I am going to do, upholding high ethical standards, and prioritizing personal communication with my clients so they are always informed.

I know first-hand what it's like to have your life turned upside-down by a car accident. I lived through the same experience as my injury clients when my own wife was in a devastating car accident, resulting in back surgery, a long hospital recovery, and rehabilitation that took almost two years. Her physical injuries healed, but our lives were forever changed. This personal experience and genuine empathy give me a unique perspective when representing injury clients. My priority is always to ease the burden of healing and help clients get their lives back as much as possible. I take on what could be emotionally charged interactions with insurance adjusters, so my clients don't have to re-live the details of their upsetting experience. This empowers my clients to focus on their own healing or caring for their loved one, and work on getting back to their job, their business, their family, and their life.

Many personal injury lawyers claim they fight for their clients in court. I also fight for my clients before we ever get to court, and I fight harder than most. If I do my job well, I will never have to put my clients through a trial. I leverage my knowledge, experience, and expertise earned over many years of successful representation to get the best outcomes for client's pre-litigation. I use cutting edge technology, advanced AI, and the same negotiation tactics used by the FBI in order to get the insurance companies to value the case for the "true" amount a jury would return, rather than the "typical" insurance offer. My propriety system is unique and has resulted in many cases resolving for liability limits very soon after being hired.

I also use my system with my other areas of practice, including general civil litigation, business litigation, and partition suits. My clients know me for my approachable and easygoing manner, my responsiveness, and my diligence. In the legal community and among my clients I've earned a reputation as a tough-but-fair professional who takes charge, is always at-the-ready to go the distance for my clients, and is willing to take on a complicated challenge others have turned down.

In my spare time I am a Points & Miles enthusiast who coaches people from all different backgrounds on how to travel the world for free.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Matt Long was my attorney in a traffic ticket case and was fantastic!! He managed to achieve a fantastic outcome for me, I highly recommend hiring Mr. Long in any legal matter as he was able to explain the situation and possibly outcomes in a very clean and clear manner. He was also very quick to response either via email or call to my various and endless questions. His fees are also very reasonable and kindly did not charge me for all the questions that I would ask in our correspondence. Thank you Mr. Long!! I will definitely hire you for any other legal matters (fingers crossed that I won't!) in the future!

Great attorney!!! Highly satisfied
I have known Mr. Long since 2013 and he has represented me on several different matters. He has provided perfect results in each case. I value Mr. Long's depth of knowledge on various legal matters. Not only that but Mr. Long is extremely talented at interpreting the law and explaining to the average layman (i.e. me) what the best possible outcomes would be as well as appropriately set expectations. In addition, Mr. Long is very responsive which is not something that I would expect from your average attorney. I would HIGHLY recommend using Mr. Long!

Standard Will
Matt Long assisted my wife and I in putting together a will. He took his time explaining all of the options and what to expect if/when the will would become applicable. We couldn't ask for a better experience than what Matt and his team provided.

My Primary Contact For All Legal Items
In addition to being my Registered Agent on a number of entities, Matt has been my go-to guy for all legal questions for the past five years. I value his responsiveness and how he includes the right tone in his communication to the other side. I have hired Matt on a few landlord/tenant and real estate related items over the years. What I value most is his willingness to help put me in the right contact for items outside of his specialties.

You Won't Be Disappointed
I have known Matt since 2012 and had the owner of the company I work for, hire him. He is always on top of any request we have and if it isn't his specialty he puts us with the best attorney he trusts.

Car Accident Representation
Mr. Long is a highly dedicated, knowledgable, and attentive attorney. He went above and beyond expectations; answering legal questions with surprising immediacy in between his correspondence with the insurance agents. When impatient hospital billing services came calling during litigation, he was there looking out for me.

Very helpful whenever I have questions even now!
I was very impressed and feel like he valued our business and cared about our situation. I would recommend him to everyone and we are very pleased with the outcome of our case and how he handled it.

Great legal advice and extremely quick to respond to emails and phone calls!
Thank you Matthew Long for giving me comprehensive advice on my current situation as a tenant facing an impeding eviction. Your honesty and integrity was apparent from the beginning to the end and you helped my family make the best decision even though that meant that we would not need your services. Much luck and success to you and to your career!

Best Lawyer in RVA!
Matt Long has represented me on two separate cases. He was extremely thorough, very straightforward, and kept me informed from beginning until end. Matt walked through all possible outcomes with me and was very well informed on the matter of law pertaining to my cases AND he set expectations appropriately. Not only that, he was quite pleasant and VERY responsive (a trait that I consider EXTREMELY important). In both cases, I received the best outcome that I could have possibly received and I am unbelievably thankful to Matt Long for his outstanding service.
