Great service
I used they service twice and I’m very pleased with both case results. The first one was on 2015 when I had a car accident and the second one was on 2016 when I also have a accident in my work. They explained everything to me and the communication was great. The staff is professional and responsable.

fast and efficient
In September 2016 I had an injury auto accident. I hired Matthew Reinstein with Lawterssociates as my attorney to handle my case. He took over all the hospital bills and paperwork for me. What a burden he and his staff took off my shoulders. They worked dilligently and fast with the insurance companies for me and settled my case. I am very happy with the way they acted on my behalf in a professional manner. I would highly reccommend Lawter and Associates to anyone needing a lawyer. Larry

Injured worker
Didn't meet the lawyer until two date two years after injury. I felt forced to settle becauseof being off work for over two years on a knee injury. Only helped with one knee and dropped the ball onthe second.

Experience hasn't been good
I'm a client of his law firm I broke my shoulder at work had a surgery went back to work and they made me go back home few months later.. I was outta work another 6 months and They were unable to get my checks for me from the insurance company or another doc been waiting for a trial date since November. Their paralegals are rude the biggest mistake I've made is hiring lawter law office.. All though my lawyer Nathan Phillips is very nice and calls back within 25-48 hrs I'm just know when I have my 2nd surgery they won't be there forcing the insurance company to do anything...

Response from Joseph Lawter February 23, 2015
Thank you for your comment. We appreciate the opportunity learn and improve and provide a better customer service. 90% of our clients come to us because the insurance company fails to do the right thing. We are forced to file a request for a trial to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, the State does not provide enough Judges to hear the cases as soon as we would like, resulting in injured workers waiting for what they are rightfully entitled. The waiting list for trials is long. We are Glad that our lawyers are returning your calls promptly. In regards to a rude legal assistant please bring this to the attention to one of our attorneys so that we can make sure it’s not repeated. We expect courtesy out of our legal assistants even when they are having a bad day. Please contact an attorney or the office manager so we can make sure we provide the best client support during this stressful period.
