Great Attorney
I was seriously injured in a car wreck. Matt Nakajima did a tremendous job on my behalf. He kept me informed about my case, he promptly returned my calls and worked tirelessly to get me a fair settlement. I would recommend Matt to anyone in need of a great attorney.

Mr. Nakajima was very helpful with a sensitive licensing issue and achieved an equitable result. He was always professional but did a good job of hand-holding during my troubled times.

Respectful & Honest
Matt Nakajima is very respectful and honest personal injury lawyer. He has worked hard on fighting for my case. He stayed in touch and kept us informed with everything going on. I would highly recommend Matt for all your personal injury needs.

I was in a terrible car accident and Matt helped me so much! He was always available to take my calls and answered every question I had. He worked with me and my parents to resolve all the issues I had with the Insurance companies after my car accident. If I am ever in this position again I will definitely give Matt a call!
