Diligent, Confident, Empathetic
We enlisted the services of Matt in mid 2021 for an injury case for my mother not knowing what our options were. She experienced an injury at a large national coffee chain and they effectively shrugged us off. Matt and his team stepped in and resulted in a settlement that was fair all things considered. What stood out most was his communication which was clear and transparent, along with the empathy he showed towards my mother. Language was a barrier but he made her feel comfortable throughout the entirety of the process. I highly recommend Matt.

Atlanta’s Best
Mr. Hollingsworth was such a pleasure to work with. He was willing to take on my case even though it is not in his direct field. He came highly recommended which in my eyes is the greatest form of marketing. Matthew is a young and upcoming success who is hungry and eager to help. I believe that God has a plan for this man and I can’t thank him enough for placing him on my path. Thank you Mr Hollingsworth for going above and beyond for me.

Very Knowledgeable Attorney
I've consulted with Mr. Hollingsworth on multiple occasions with car accidents. Yes, unfortunately my wife and I have been in more than 1. Mr. Hollingsworth consulted with us on what to do with our insurance company and what to do in court.

Glad I didn’t go to anyone else...
I needed a lawyer last year after I got rear ended and Matt was recommended to me by a friend. He was really wonderful, always returned my emails and calls, and was really great at explaining the process and kept me updated. He got me an excellent deal and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who’s injured.

A good choice . . . .
Several months ago, a fellow ran a red light and T-boned my vehicle, totaling it. I'd never previously had reason to use an attorney for anything, but I had no idea how to proceed myself to protect my interests. Matthew Hollingsworth came highly recommended, and I'm glad I chose him as everything was clearly explained to me as things progressed, but with Matt and his paralegal handling every detail. The case was ultimately settled to my satisfaction, and I highly recommend Matthew to anyone in a similar situation.

a great lawyer experience
I hired Matt Hollingsworth over a dispute with my own insurance company. i expressed that i had lost around 3400 dollars total in depreciation on my vehicle and that i had documented it through appraisals before and after my car was hit and that my insurance company lowballed me after i paid $275 for an independent appraisal. Matt was honest with me from the beginning sharing different court options and how long a case like this could take based on different paths we could take. He made return calls within 24 hours everytime i reached out to him and most days was same day responsive. He offered great and consistent advise throughout the process but allowed me to make the decision for what i wanted to do. He is an extremely patient lawyer who gets results. After he got to work he was able to to get the person who hit me insurance to take responsibility which they refused even though i was rear-ended. He negotiated firmly and we settled for more than my expected 3400 dollar loss. I got my money's worth using Matt Hollingsworth

Intelligent, aggressive, logical, investigative, tenacious and empathic,
I hired the law firm of Tom Ashenden & Associates, both Tom and his partner Matt Hollingsworth to help me out with a pretty scary issue where I was hit by a car while crossing street in a crosswalk, this was not my fault. I was worried that my son and I would lose everything just to cover the medical bills and loss of wages, but Tom and Matt got to work and honestly and professionally addressed each of my concerns and represented me with great tenacity and zeal after just a couple of meetings. I wish that this all never happened. But both Tom and Matt made me feel a lot better while they worked on my case. I’d hire the law firm again.
