Workers compensation
Matt has been absolutely fantastic through my injury,I had to move out of state and he provided the care I needed to get my surgery and my pt . Matt also delt with worker's compensation and arranged all my benefits, we have recently settled and although the process has been long I couldn't have done this with out him. Matt is very much a professional and a very carrying person I would recommend him highly for any needs you may have.

Best choice in Billings
Mr. Tourtlotte was able to help me get a quick and reasonable settlement from our insurance company. I had spent hours on the phone dealing with adjusters and he took over and was able to save me the headaches they had been giving me. He got me double what I was hoping for.

Workers Compensation
Matt helped me with a workers compensation case that lasted over a year and a half. With all the different paper work, phone calls and people I needed to deal with I just couldn't handle it. After it was all finished he got me more than we had originally projected. I found Matt and his staff very accommodating and would recommend him to others.

Billings Attorney
It was great working with Matt on our insurance claim. He took on the insurance company and really helped get us the result we were looking for.

still learning withdrew from case when questions were asked
Matt Tourlotte took on both a clear liability car accident and a employment claim, he cost me two months and did not stay in contact what-so-ever. When questions arose due to rising out of pocket costs and lack of communication he scheduled a lady minute meeting and withdrew. Left me with zero representation, months in, and no referral. Over all,very inexperienced and extremely unprofessional.
