I am passionate about obtaining fair compensation for consumers who are seriously injured through medical malpractice, defective products, nursing home neglect and abuse, and automobile and trucking accidents.  That passion is born of a belief in the intrinsic value of human life and the need to protect our fundamental human rights to life, liberty and security of person.

I am married with three kids.  I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky where I have volunteered on numerous boards and charitable organizations and as a coach in youth sports.

Highly recommend
Mat is an expert in his field, and is very professional and wonderful overall! I hired him for a very sensitive personal injury case for my child. He saw the case all the way through various complicated legal twists, and ultimately helped us to successfully win the case. I would absolutely hire him again and highly recommend him.

Elder abuse consultation
I consulted Mr. Slechter when I had a concern about elder abuse of a close relative. He was responsive to find time to meet with me. He was patient when listening to the facts and he provided excellent advice and reassurance. I really appreciated his wise counsel and kind demeanor.

Does Justice, Loves Mercy
Mat has served as legal counsel for our church for a number of years. He possesses a thorough knowledge of the law yet is able to communicate complex matters in understandable terms. He is a man of integrity and has a very strong sense of justice, willing to fight for what is right, always with his client’s best interest in mind. Mat is a great listener and very empathetic. I recommend Mat without reservation for anyone seeking legal representation.

Excellence in Work and Values
I hired Mr. Slechter several years ago and he handled the case with excellence and precision. He is highly attuned to the dynamics of current law and addresses the opposition with focus and strength. I was impressed with his organization and responsiveness to my case. Personally, he has a strong values system that was appropriate in every step of my case. He did a great job for me day in and day out and I highly recommend his firm.

Mat represented me in 2003 after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. He was recommended to me by a friend and after talking with several other lawyers I knew Mat was the man we wanted. Mat knew everything that needed to be done and handled my case both professionally and successfully. I would recommend Mat to anyone without hesitation.
