My wife injured her back helping a patient of hers at work. It became very clear to us after a short period of time that workers comp did not have her best interest at heart. We decided to try and advocate for ourselves. The best analogy I could think of is it's like David going up against Goliath.
We contacted fendon law and receive the call back in less than an hour as I recall. We met with Matt Fendon at is office a day or two later. We had all our paperwork in order and Matt sifted through it all. An hour later we made the best decision we could have made ... we hired Matt I'm his knowledgeable staff to represent my wife.
My wife went through three or four hearings with Matt at her side each step of the way. There is no way we could have dealt with this on our own. We are very fortunate to have found Fendon Law and in particular Matt Fendon.
My wife received all the medical treatment that had been prescribed to her but workers comp had denied. In addition she received all the back pay that was due to her that workers comp had denied. My suggestion to anyone having to deal with workers comp is to make these folks your first call !

Matt Fendon represented me on a very emotional workman's comp case involving death benefits. Matt and his staff were not only professional, but so were sweet and supportive through such a horrible time in my life. Matt was confident we would win, no matter what it took, he was willing stick it out, by my side. I would definitely recommend Matt and his firm to anyone, and should I ever need his services again, I would not hesitate to call him.

Matt Fendon has been fighting for me from the beginning! My case has been complicated from a work injury that hasn't gone well for me. Not only did Matt get my surgery approved for me, he now has pushed to get a piece of equipment my doctor strongly recommends approved after it was denied! My recovery is a going to be a long & tough one, but because of Matt fighting for me, it will be a better one! I can't thank Matt & his staff enough to equal what he has done & continues to do for me & my case! Thank you Matt!!

Matt was able to get me the medical help I needed as well as the temporary monthly compensation I was entitled to. Matt never over promised me anything. He explained the process to give me a sense of understanding as it pertain to my case. Overall Matt and his staff were awesome. I sincerely appreciate the help he has given to get my life back to normal as much as possible. Once again Matt thank you.

Matt Fendon’s extracurricular activities keep him from giving his cases the detailed attention they advertise. Don Fendon’s reputation draws clients in, then you are signed up and assigned to other than a real lawyer. Disappointed with mismanagement leading to loss of my case, I researched deeper into Matt Fendon, interestingly, I found other complaints just like mine. I hired Matt Fendon to represent me in a workers comp case against my employer for spinal injuries sustained by their dump truck blowing a tire while going 65 mph and slamming the truck head on into the freeway median and the seatbelt broke on impact throwing me about the cab. With witnesses and lots of evidence, it should have been a slam dunk winning case, instead, I still suffer from a spinal neck injury in which Matt couldn't even negotiate medical treatment to fix.
I experienced a high turnover in his office staff therefore it was understaffed and they made lots of mistakes. They didn’t have a good internal or external communication system, they freely postponed court dates, they sent substitutes to court without telling you, he collaborated with the opposite sides lawyer, didn’t notice the judge’s approval for a doctor change and instead of billing the insurer they charged me for Matts excellent, good in court, specialized doctors evaluation, which had mistakes that Matt didn’t catch until during court. I found a long history of charges between this doctor and Matt. He took 25% of each check I got from workers comp without me approving the charges. When I caught on to billing mistakes and requested a breakdown of charges to be sent with my weekly invoicing, it wasn’t a breakdown they sent.
Matt allowed the insurers medical examiners to release me back to work and their lawyers to throw out my Phoenix Barrows top rated neurosurgeon examination report. After not winning me any compensation or medical help, Matt asked if I wanted to reopen/appeal my case, he never said I would have to give them more money or pay out of pocket for any doctor he sent me to for evaluation. That is how he was “keeping the lights on!” (I still have his email).
I now know the difference in experience between an attorney vs a lawyer.

I've been a client of Matt Fendon since February 2012. My injuries were with the same company but different insurance co. A real mess and Matt got my neck surgery and what I deserve from that case. Now my lower back is very bad from years on the job and Matt got the case reopened without going to court because he made sure that we had enough evidence to win so the insurance co said ok reopen. He is very understanding and really cares about this clients. Thanks Matt for all you do. If you need help from on the job injury first call should be Matt at FENDON LAW.

Matt and his team are amazing and put their client's interest first. Matt is honest, full of integrity, knowledgeable, hard-working, and dedicated to getting the best result for his clients. He genuinely cares about the outcome of each case. If you have been injured in a work-related accident, this is the firm to have on your side!

I wrote a question on this site for the 1st time. Having never had to deal with a lawyer or Workman's comp. before I needed some help, making sure I was doing things correctly. Matt responded so fast I was shocked, I was also very relieved with the help Matt gave me and all the questions he answered. It is bad enough to be in extreme pain but, this process without knowing how to do it, makes it worse. Matt made my mind feel at ease. He is also awesome on the phone. I felt like he was an old friend.

I can definitely say that one of the best decisions i have made in my life was hiring Matt Fendon to represent me in my Workmen's Comp case. I had previously thought about dealing with SCF(Copper-point mutual ) on my own however found that they were only interested in bullying me, and trying to do the least they possibly could for my case. Matt and his staff were extremely attentive, kind, and helpful during every stage of my case. I frequently called Matt for questions big and small, and was always answered with a" no problem" helpful attitude. I actually have come to see Matt as a friend not just a lawyer. I would recommend this man and his caring staff to any and everyone looking for a kind, decent human being who cares about you not just your case, and how much money will be made. I could not be more pleased with my decision to hire Matthew Fendon of Fendon Law to care for me and my case.
