Exceptional service
Matthew Vance and his team showed genuine empathy and inspired trust - I was very hesitant to work with a lawyer. They also were easy to work with and minimized the stress of an unpleasant situation.

Matthew was on the case from the minute I hired him. He started get evidence and preserving it the same day. He kept me update as soon as information was available. He spoke to me directly never push me off on a legal assistant. He is highly ethical, honest and caring. Best Attorney I have ever meet. He is the only attorney I would recommend for this type of case wrongful death/personal injury.

Would highly recommend
I was wrapped up in a PI case that had been continuous since the wreck in 2013 and my lawyer did nothing. Until Mr. Vance took over, after he took my case in less than 8 months he completely resolved the case for me and cleaned up the mess of the prior lawyer on my case. I appreciate his offices professionalism and attention to detail, they are all so helpful and cheerful all the time. I would definitely recommend Mr. Vance to anyone looking for a good honest man among the many snakes.

Auto Accident
We would highly recommend Mr. Vance to represent you. My husband and I, from Florida, were rear ended in Albuquerque while we were traveling to experience the Hot Air Balloon Festival. We were notified by mail by a few attorneys wanting to represent us. After a telephone conversation with Mr. Vance, we felt very confident that he was a reputable and honest Attorney. We were right, he was awesome, answered all questions, and was very helpful.

Professional and Sympathetic
I would highly recommend Mr. Vance. We lost our son in an accidental shooting and were completely unprepared for all that followed. By chance a friend had used Mr. Vance previously and was very impressed with his work. Not only was he instrumental in guiding us through such a devastating time legally but also personally. Keeping our son’s memory and interest as top priority and taking some of the burden off our shoulders and allowing us to grieve. We could never thank him enough for helping us through our worst nightmare.

Stand Up Lawyer
I had the opportunity to have Matt as my lawyer on 2 different occasions. One for a auto accident where I was rear ended and another for a wrongful death. Both situations, Matt helped me understand what the process was, explained everything throughly, and showed nothing but the upmost respect and compassion during our most difficult time. I would recommend Matt to anyone! Matt thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you and your staff did for my family.

Respectful and Patient
There is always a price you are paying when you require an attorney; mine, a car accident. Mr. Vance fought for me and did the work and negotiating without burdening me and my time. He fought for me and I can't thank him enough. I was not an easy person to work with but he was always patient and considerate. Well worth the high attorney fees; you'll get your money's worth

Great Lawyer
I was having a really hard time with an insurance claim. A friend of a friend ended up referring me to Matthew. Since our consult, he was always very deligent about things. He always made sure we were on the same page and that I understood everything that was going on. He was a great help and I'd recommend him to anyone.

Outstanding Lawyer
Matt has represented me with two cases one accident (rear ended) and one neglect case. Matt got settlements for my losses and injuries that i sustained in both cases. He is hardworking and explains everything to you so you understand all of the legal process . He points out if it can or cant be done . I found his brilliance and honesty a great attribute for him and comforting to me . I recommend him highly.

Great Attorney, Very Thorough and Caring
My spouse and I needed a lawyer for a rollover accident totaling our vehicle and rv, caused by another driver. We were referred to Matt, and had a great experience. He was very thorough and very considerate and caring through the trauma of it all. Matt explained the whole process of what he would do for us, and answered all our questions very promptly and accurately. We were very pleased with the experience of working with Matt, and will continue to use him if the need be in the future.

Amazing Attorney
Matt and his team are amazing. They contacted me when I needed to come into the office to sign forms, and they only bothered me when they had a question on something. They took care of everything from beginning to end. I am so appreciative of them. And would refer them to my closest friends with no hesitation.

Matthew Vance
Matt Vance has been a great lawyer for me. At a time when I was absolutely terrified, he offered objectivity and effective communication. He kept me informed, treated me with respect, and never wasted my time throughout this episode of my life. My situation did favorably for me. I am grateful.

Matt cares for the well being of his clients
Over seven years ago Matt helped me with my legal issue. Emotionally charged and incapable of clear thought at the time, Matt walked with me through that lengthy process. Bolstering me when I felt like giving up. He knows his profession. And then two years ago he directed me outside his legal expertise with the estate of my late husband. I would, and have recommended Matt throughout the years. Matt will fight for you as he did for me. Thank you friend

Great Lawyer!
My family has hit from behind by an aggressive driver. My Husband, two daughters and a family friend were all injured. We hired Matt and were very happy, not only with the great results, but the way he dealt with us from beginning to end. He took the time to meet with us and listen, offered good advice and most importantly, seemed most concerned with my husband and kids getting better. He kept in touch throughout the treatment, and when that was done got us a great result from the other guy's insurance company. He kept us in the loop during negotiations and when they tried to "lowball" us, he kept fighting until we got what we deserved. A caring advocate, a real fighter and a great lawyer!
