I have a complex dispute with my employer. I was hurt on the job and then terminated. I called a bunch of firms and Mr Flatows firm was the first that called me back. After my initial consultation, they laid out a plan.
I was questioning whether or not to let this go or stand up for myself. I am happy that I hired this firm because the staff was friendly, the associates were smart and Mr. Flatow was on top of the entire process. I am really happy with how everything turned out and that is why i am leaving this review.

I was hurt at work pretty bad and when the doctor wrote me out, i was fired. When i called aroudn to various lawyers, I was told that they only would look at the injury and were not interested or could not help me with the termiantion. Mathew was the first lawyer i found who was able to handle both. He filed claims with the industrial commisison and Department of labor. He followed up and kept me informed the whole time. We had a conference with the my employer and got both issues resolved at one time.
It was refreshing to have one lawyer who was incredibly smart in both areas of law. I cannot recommend this firm and Matthew enough.

I own a 15 person construction company and was having trouble with a minority owner. Mathew went through our bylaws and corporate documents and found a way to remove the minority owner and get our company back on track. Truly impressed by his aggressive problem solving.
I will keep going back for my business issues. He really gets it. His staff is wonderful too. Good team over there.

Mathew Flatow has my highest regards, he is a very professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, exceptional attorney with high moral standards. He went "above and beyond" his professionalism to resolve a lawsuit our company was involved, he was always informing me of any challenges. He prevailed and won the case. Mathew in my personal, professional opinion is a very valuable asset for any legal litigation or any legal proceedings.

I have been in a bad employment situation for over a decade and have talked to numerous attorneys about how to resolve it. I found Mathew on this website and paid for his consultation. In a unique experience, he had me email all the relevant documents to my case a day in advance. Before my consultation, he clearly knew the documents inside and out and was likely did some research already. When we met, he gave me advice that I had not heard before and a completely different strategy how to get out of my non-compete agreement. I am in the process of implementing this strategy and it seems promising.
Even more surprising, after the consultation, Mathew invited me to email or call with any follow up questions. When I did so, he responded promptly at no extra charge.
I have been going to lawyers for a long time and never had this kind of experience. I would highly recommend Mathew for anyone who needs an employment consult because he is well prepared, diligent and thinks outside the box.

I met Mathew in January of 2013, after receiving no luck or progress with my workers comp case/ wrongful termination case. My 1st attorney was arrogant and after months of me having to do most of the work and printing off all information that was e-mailed to us, and putting the info in notebooks and indexing them myself, and after 9+ months of no progress, he told me I probably would not get any financial settlement! So I tried another attorneys group, and they never really even got started, and would not contact me. I never even sat down with them in person, and they are a large group in Charlotte! Then I was referred to Mathew, and my world changed. He and his legal aid, Vanessa promised me they would get strated right away, and make things happen in a positive light for me. Mathew settled both my cases within 6 months, and in both instances, I received a financial settlement, and my nightmares were over. They kept me informed at all times, and Mathew did what he said he would. He helped me, and helped my family, and I am a satisfied customer. I would recommend Mathew and his firm to represent you in your legal matters. It will save you a lot of sleepless nights. Thanks to Mathew and Vanessa. I am a 56 year old Nurse Manager, and this young man helped me when no one else would.

I had a negligence case which Mr. Flatow took on contingency. I was certain it was more or less hopeless. Mr. Flatow assured me that he would take care of me, explained why and how my case was actually pretty good, and within three months, I had a check for a lot more than I expected.

I hired Mathew Flatow to handle a pretty bad auto accident i was in. I have used several lawyers in the past and Mathew was by far the most responsive and concerned about my needs. He always took the time to explain things to me and went above and beyond my expectations. He was also a tenacious negotiator. If you want a caring advocate on your side, look no further than Mathew and his firm SeiferFlatow!!

I had an injury that was over a year old and my employer refused to get me medical attention or anything. Mathew was able to get me a settlement that paid my unpaid medical bills. I am truly grateful for his help and so happy that he made the collection calls stop.

Mathew helped me when I got hurt from work. My employer treeted me poorly after getting hurt and Mathew helped get my case on the right track and settled for fair value. I give himn 5 stars.

I am impressed with Mr. Flatow's thoughtful advice and answers to legal questions on Avvo. He has an in-depth understanding of the law and an ability to communicate legal concepts clearly and effectively. I endorse this lawyer!
