Matt and his crew represented my uncle after a fatal car wreck my aunt was in loved in. Matt worked around the clock, as well as the other attorneys. Matt kept my uncle and I up to date on everything and was as nice, understanding, and sympathetic as anyone could ask for!!

Matthew Wright represented my husband and I in a personal injury case. My husband was in a serious accident involving an 18 wheeler. Matt made a very stressful situation so much easier for us. He is kind, caring and very knowledgable. We were proud to have him handle our case. He is devoted to his clients and he always took the time to answer any questions we had. He worked hard to get us the settlement we needed. He knows the ins and outs of trucking litigation. He explained everything to us step by step. He made the whole process so much easier for us so we could focus on my husbands recovery which really meant a lot to us. We highly reccomend him to anyone that is looking for a trustworthy attorney.

I couldn't have dreamed up a better person. I wish the world could know what a wonderful experience my family and I had. Mr. Wright honestly cared about our situation, and through him were able to pick up the pieces and move forward after loss and heartache. I saw in him honesty, intelligence, loyalty, and kindness. I felt like I was his only client! I recommend this person to everyone. Thanks Matt for changing our lives!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I've known Matt for many years and we have had the opportunity to work together on several different cases. He is a fearless advocate for his clients and brings a no-nonsense attitude to negotiations. His results are proof positive of this approach. On a personal level, Matt has always been willing to share valuable insights that have enabled me to sidestep a few landmines along the way. I highly recommend Matt.
