Attorney Matt Ninneman is a trusted and strategic advisor and advocate
Mr. Ninneman is very knowledgeable, strategic,detail-oriented, responsive and trustworthy. I am an attorney for a company and we hired Mr. Ninneman to prosecute claims against several parties, sounding in tort and contracts. Matt has guided us every step of the way and has instilled confidence in my non-lawyer colleagues. Matt has kept me informed throughout every part of the process. Mr. Ninneman has respected and worked within our budget and has been extremely efficient and productive with his billable time. I highly recommend Mr. Ninneman for plaintiff commercial litigation work.
