Attentive & Personal
Matt and his staff are incredible to work with. I was in an accident and had no clue what to do with anything, bills, treatment, dealing with my insurance company and the person who hit me. I was confused and had not a clue what to do. I talked to Matt and the first thing he did was make sure any questions I had were answered. His team has always focused on one thing: making sure that I am taken care of and get the care I deserve. He and his team worked hard to keep me informed and checked-in along the way. He is an expert and makes sure that I am informed and knowledgable about each step in the process to ensure not only that I get the result I want, but that I understand everything they are doing too. I have never worked with anyone with an unwavering commitment to honesty, transparency, and his clients as much as Matt and the entire team at his office. No matter who I have worked with at Matt's office, I have always been treated with the utmost respect and sense of urgency. He always listens carefully and answers my questions in a way that I understand. While I hope no one I know is in a position to need Matt, I cannot recommend Matt and his team enough to anyone who needs his services. They truly are the best!

In a car accident
I was rear ended in a car accident and have been dealing with the other guy insurance the past couple weeks. I went to Matt for a consultation on my case. Matt gave me great advice on how to work with their insurance. Matt’s consultation was free and wanted to help me get this accident dealt with without asking for anything. I would highly recommend Matt if you want advice and don’t know what to do next or what might be best for your situation.

Consult
I was recently in a car accident and needed a consultation with a lawyer. Matthew was recommended through a friend, knowing he does consults for free. Although at this time I don’t need an attorney, he was able to give me some free advice on how to get comfortable with what my needs were and how to deal with the liable party’s insurance.

I Was Lucky Enough To Pick Matt
I was in an accident and Matt was there for me when I needed him. I was lucky enough to pick him as my attorney. He answered my questions before I asked. When I called, he would always call me back. I got a good settlement and am very happy. Check out Matt, he is a great guy and a great attorney.

Matt Lathrop's representation of my personal injury case
Matt is a consummate professional and became a trusted friend. He spent an inordinate amount of time with me and on my case. It was also abundantly clear he genuinely care for me as a person and not just another client. He expertly guided me through a difficult time helping me land in a really good place. I do not know what I would have done without him. Even though my case has been resolved for months Matt still checks in on me and took the time to send me a birthday card. If someone is looking for a great attorney and a super human being, Matt is your guy.

Highly recommend Matthre Lathrop
had a phone appointment with Matthew Lathrop to discuss whether or not to proceed on my case with an attorney. Matt went above and beyond what he had to do. I feel that he is a trustworthy person. My concerns and welfare were his priority. He took an interest and made me feel like I could call on him anytime if I needed help. He took the time to explain all of my options and even brought up things I had never thought of. Whether or not you hire him, I feel like he is there to assist me if I have further concerns. I meant what I said that he has went above and beyond!

Got hit by a drunk driver while walking across the street
After I got hit by a drunk driver while crossing the street, Matt came highly recommended by two of my friends, one of which is a lawyer who's in a different field. He was very clear on what to expect, communication was easy. He was there to explain and take calls when needed. Overall a nice guy and easy to talk to. The result was a great outcome, even better than I expected. It did take a while with hospital visit and going to physical therapy, around a year.

Trustworthy, patient and smart.
I hired Matt Lathrop for a case involving my son and a serious injury. The case lasted several years and was complicated and Matt was extremely patient and helpful the entire time. He and his staff were a pleasure to work with.
