Steve made both of us feel comfortable and very well informed as our case went on. He always prepared us for what to expect when we were disposed and was always very responsive to any questions or concerns we had.

I did not know any lawyers until my daughter and I were involved in a serious truck collision. I called the office and Steve Matz came to my house to meet with me and discuss our claims. Mr. Matz quickly filed a Federal District Court lawsuit on our behalf and the trucking company that was responsible for our injuries put up a significant fight. Although it took three years, Mr. Matz was able to obtain a judgment on our behalf of $1.6 million. I will be forever grateful to Steve Matz for securing my future and my daughter’s future.

I come from a family of lawyers and Steve Matz was recommended to me by family members. He is a very skillful and talented attorney, and a true professional. He kept me apprised of every step along the path of my case, taking it to a very successful resolution. His reduced fee saved me considerable money, and I’m deeply grateful for his kindness and consideration throughout the entire process. You never want to need an attorney, but if I ever needed one again, I wouldn’t hesitate to call on Steve.
