About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

I have successfully prosecuted a great number of medical malpractice, product liability and various personal injury cases including trucking cases, construction cases, auto collisions, sexual assault and various wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases. 

I am a trial lawyer and prepare each case for trial. Concentrating on a small number of cases and being willing and able to take a case to verdict allows me to maximize the recovery on every case I pursue.
