Insurance Settlement
I had a dispute with my insurance company regarding coverage. Matthew Duco helped me get a settlement that will allow me to repair my car. Throughout the process, Matt clearly communicated what to expect, gave me a timeline, and kept to his timeline.

I hired Mr. Duco after I was in a very severe car accident and easily could have lost my life. Thanks to his hard work and dedication to my case, I now have all my medical bills paid that were near a $100,000, and money to help recover my lingering injuries. I highly recommend him.
Response from Matthew Duco March 12, 2018
I enjoyed having you as a client and am glad that I was able to help ease the burden of medical bills. Thank you for the kind review, it means a lot.

Unknown Attorney | Feb 17
Relationship: Co-worker
"Matthew Duco excels in pursuing cases that appear to be uphill battle. He is a tireless researcher and has an unnatural ability to read, comprehend, and apply the law to unique legal situations."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Matthew J. Duco is a legal genius; his breadth of knowledge, superb research skills, and keen legal writing abilities are among his many talents. I have personally witnessed Matthew successfully argue numerous motions, take cases to trial, and craft briefs on appeal which ultimately won substantial sums of money for his clients. Matthew's ability to think outside the box, and creatively craft arguments in situations where many lawyers would simply turn down the case truly sets him apart from others in his field. For example, when it appeared my client's injuries would go uncompensated due to a situation where the responsible party declared bankruptcy, I called upon Matthew. His advice and assistance were integral to my client ultimately obtaining justice. Matthew's knack for finding [or forcing] insurance coverage on initially denied claims is likewise commendable. He is a legal force of nature no matter how complex the litigation!"

"Matt is an incredibly bright and talented attorney. He goes above and beyond for his clients on a daily basis. I highly recommend him."
Securities and investment fraud Attorney | Sep 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the privilege of working with Matt on a number of legal matters. Many lawyers in the securities litigation field, (including myself), have turned to Matt for help in difficult cases. Thanking Matt for his insight on a particularly complicated case, one attorney said it best: “if I can see for miles, it is because I stand on the shoulders of a giant – Matt Duco.” I couldn’t agree more. Matt is also an exceptional person outside of the office and volunteers his time to causes that provide for the less fortunate. He brings that same drive to help others to bear in his advocacy for his clients. In short, I recommend Matt as both an attorney and an exceptional person."
