I hired Matt almost three years ago when I was hit on my motorcycle by a careless driver. I spent the next two years going through ten surgeries and going from wheel chair to crutch to cane. I was at a place in my life I couldn't care for myself and I needed a lot of medical attention. Matt handled all my needs and was a real person when I needed someone to talk to. He went above and beyond the job. He came to the hospital , to my home and set up dr visits for me when I couldn't do it myself. My life was taken away from me and for a long time I wondered if I'd ever get it back. I watched myself transform from a successful young man into a destroyed handicap person. Matt assured me it would be alright and fought for me when the insurance tried to give me as little as possible . I had so many surgeries I watched my life I once knew turn into a new life of complete misery. I couldn't imagine what it would of been like in my condition had I hired another attorney. I felt like Matt was trustworthy and honest with me through the legal battle and in the end my expectations were met. Mind you a legal proceeding is not an overnight journey, it takes time and who you hire is a BIG DEAL! It took years of hell and patience but Matt never pressured me to sell myself short or settle for his benefit. Through the entire legal procedure he looked out for my best interest. I was a very needy client and my injuries are very serious. Had I not hired Matt I doubt I'd of gotten the personal attention from an attorney or the settlement I received. I am very grateful to Matt Erjavec !
Matt if you're reading this thank you for watching over me through the legal proceedings and getting me an unbelievable settlement. I will never forget your service! You're a one of a kind attorney and people would be crazy not to hire you.

Last fall I was in a serious car accident and needed a personal injury attorney. Although I am an attorney, I don't practice personal injury, so I reached out to my fellow lawyers to get a referral. A trusted friend recommended Matt and we arranged to meet to discuss my case. I instantly found Matt to be straightforward and very honest. He laid out the pluses and minuses of my case along with his plan of attack. I felt he was very knowledgeable and signed a retainer with him that day. He immediately got to work on my case and made a point to keep me updated on the progress. He was always available by phone or email and I was never left wondering where my case stood. He did an exceptional job and got me a very fair settlement in only a few months. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is facing a personal injury matter. He made a difficult situation much easier.
