Words alone cannot express my gratitude to the entire Passen Law Group team. They took a very difficult time of my life a guided me to successful resolution.
After being rear-ended in a car accident I began having physical difficulties with speech, headaches, memory, taste and ringing in my ears. While in the Emergency Room it was discovered I had incurred a severe traumatic brain injury called a subdural hematoma.
While recovering after brain surgery, it took me some time to be able talk and communicate clearly again. During that time a lifelong friend encouraged I contact the Passen Law Group. I knew I needed help communicating with third parties legally involved in the aftermath of the car accident. Because I was unable to leave my home during recovery, Mr. Passen willingly came to my home and clearly explained a recommended course of action. I agreed with the approach and consented to retain their services.
It’s over now, but I will never forget the high level of professionalism and expertise exhibited by the Passen Law Group throughout the duration of this legal matter. And I‘d like to express a special thank you to their administrative manager, Kim Sanchez who always kept me informed of status and progress of issues along the way. What a team !!!

Of course Matthew A. Passen is a talented trial attorney, but what makes him different is that he personally cares deeply for his clients. He tries to put himself in their shoes to understand the pain that they have suffered, how the disaster has changed their lives and how that suffering has affected their families. Only by knowing his clients and their circumstances fully, can he understand the true value of their case. Matthew is a tireless fighter for his clients and their families’ and is prepared to take their cases to jury verdict if the other side remains unreasonable.
