Highly recommend Matt Dion
I hired Matt Dion to handle the auto insurance company, following an accident in August 2018, after I was rear ended. He was personable and honest. I felt like I could trust him as my attorney. When the insurance company offered far less than we were expecting, due to the lack of medical bills that I had accumulated. Matt honored ther amount that he originally told me about, gave me the full amount offered by the insurance company, and his firm covered my medical bills. I highly recommend him to retain, I will definitely use him again, if I am ever in need of an attorney in the future. Everyone in his firm was respectful, diligent, and extremely helpful with any questions I had through the process.

Helpful and considerate
Matt Dion was very knowledgeable with my case and was able to make all the details understandable. He walked me through the entire process and guided me towards the best decisions to make regarding this case.

A helping hand when I needed it most
Matt Dion and his team are helpful and professional. They explained the process along the way step by step when I was overwhelmed and recovering from a car accident. They were also very patient with me as I was working full time and going to school while recovering, and took a while to get paperwork over to them at times. If you need help from someone who is honest and will do the right thing, Matt and his team are it!

Auto accident
I was referred to Matt by a friend, and he lived up to the recommendation. I reached out to Matt after an accident and met with him in his office. He was patient, compassionate and very honest. He explained the process of working with insurance companies for my vehicle repairs, helped me understand how he'd go about securing additional compensation for my accident, and was realistic about the timing and the level of effort it would take to move through the process. He's a great listener, allowing me to ask questions so I understood the process and he's just an all around great guy. He's just the right amount of aggressive. He really made me feel like I had a caring and compassionate partner during a very traumatic time. He's how lawyers should be! I can strongly recommend him if you're looking for someone who will listen, take the time to work with you, and really partner to help you get a fair settlement.

Rear-end accident
I was rear-ended in an automobile accident, and I didn't think I needed a lawyer at first. A friend of mine suggested I call Matt Dion for a consultation "just to see" what he had to say, and I am so glad I did. The accident and following health problems were extremely stressful, but Matt and his staff made things so much easier. He was always honest and up-front with me and he kept in touch with frequent updates. I never would have gotten the amount I deserved if it weren't for Matt's services. I highly recommend Matt Dion and Associates if you are ever in need of legal services following an accident.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Matt following an accident that I was injured in. I can't say enough good things about Matt and his assistant Alisha! I was apprehensive about hiring an attorney after I had hired one here in town for another case who took advantage of my case and a lot of his other clients that caused him to be suspended. Matt and Alisha were very professional, supportive, and kind. Even if there was a setback or delay in my case they would let me know. They would always return my calls or emails right away. I highly recommend Matt Dion & Associates!

Job Well Done
I hired Matt after a car accident in 2015. Matt worked hard to get a fair settlement for me. He was very professional, and a pleasure to work with. He always kept me well informed of everything that was happening with my case.

Dedicated & Caring
I honestly had the best experience from start to finish. I was referred to Mr. Dion's office from a coworker. I am so happy that I chose to go with his firm. I was rear ended at a stop light a last year. The damage on my car were minor, but my symptoms got worse over time. It was about a year later when I seeked further treatment and then met with Mr. Dion. Life happens and I am a mother who is use to putting myself on the bacl burner. But the symptoms were affecting my daily living. After seeing a specialist and doing all the testings, I realized how expensive all of this was and it was all because of that accident. With my car damage being minor I knew the insurances would think there was no way I could've gotten injured. I had a herniated C6-7, EMG nerve test showed my nerves on the left greater than right showed abnormalities. I have numbness down both arms and in my fingers. I was ok prior to the accident and I do not do any type of activity that would put me at risk for this kind of injury. I first spoke with Alisha, and she is completely amazing and super helpful! She schedule me to see Mr. Dion right away. The initial consult, I was convinced that I wanted Mr. Dion in my corner to fight for me. He comes off straight forward in a way that he earns your trust and NOT in a way that you feel like he is just a lawyer taking another case. You just know after talking to him he is the right person to be in your corner. I think my case took all of maybe 4 months from my first call with their firm. I could be off a month give or take. They worked so quickly and kept me up to date each step of the way. It also helped that I had all of my treatments all under one umbrella. During this process I need surgery as my symptoms were really affecting my daily life and work. The last thing I needed to worry about was this case and Mr. Dion made sure of that. He made sure all I needed to worry about was having my surgery and to recover. It was so incredible to have one less thing off my shoulder. I truly had the best experience with their firm and every chance I get I will refer to Mr. Dion. To have to go through a car accident is hard enough and you want someone on your side who has your best interest at heart. After a worry free process with my case, Mr. Dion settled my case. I can't thank Mr. Dion & Alisha enough for their hardwork.

Excellent at Auto Accidents
Matt Dion is a very thorough and competent professional, who I felt always had my best interests in mind. Matt kept me informed of the legal process and what to expect from the insurance company. He never got frustrated with my delayed responses, because of my hectic work schedule and a family crisis . He is a true expert and gave me a realistic outcome and timeliness. I highly recommend his legal services. He is a good guy!

Thank you Matt and Alisha
I was in an auto vs. pedestrian accident. My Doctor referred me to Matt Dion. Thank goodness he did. Matt and Alisha took care of my case from start to finish. They took care of everything, and I felt like they kept me in the loop at each step of the way. My bills are paid in full, with paper work to prove it. I did not have any business calling me to collect money, they took care of everything. They answered all my questions right away, too. Thanks guys, for letting me heal without the extra added stress of any worry. I sure appreciate you!

I would recommend Matt to friends and family alike
Matt Dion helped me resolve my car accident case quickly. It was not really an easy case because the insurance company said I "had a previous accident with injuries and a preexisting age-related degenerative condition." The initial settlement was next to nothing. Matt Dion did his job and was able to help cut down medical bills and then also was able to get a little bit more from the insurance company. He was very patient with me and explained things to make me feel better, as I got pretty emotional.

GREAT JOB, BEST TEAM
The first time I I had a car accident and I don't know what to do. So a lot of people told me to seek an attorney. Went to a website for the list of attorneys that handle personal injury and saw this law office of Joey Gibert. A little bit hesitant but decided to call them. I got an appointment right away and meet the team. Thank God I got the right choice to meet Atty. Dion. I don't have any regrets. Kudos to Alisha, too, for keeping me updated. I really appreciate what you have done for me. Awesome job. Keep up the good work.

I'm glad I went with Mr.Dion
After I was injured in a car accident I was referred to Attorney Matt Dion. I went to his office, and he explained everything to me. I knew then that I found the right attorney. He was straightforward; he connected me to an experienced doctor. I didn't have to worry about any of the medical bills, including the hospital bills, just like he said in the beginning. They knew I was under a lot of stress, I was always asking questions and they were always there to answer them. They were polite and conciderate, I was satisfied with the results. Mr. He and his staff are an excellent team.

SO happy to have Matt representing me!
After being hit in a rear-end collision, I required multiple surgeries. I was completely overwhelmed with medical bills and I did not know where to turn or even what to do first. I called Matt’s office and got an appointment for a consultation. I was very uncertain about using an attorney, but, from the very first meeting, Matt Dion was the consummate professional and took ALL the worry out of the process for me. From that the first meeting, I felt his genuine concern for my well-being. He treated me with courtesy, dignity and respect. I was so pleased with his ability to address what could be perceived as a negative situation and turn it into something truly positive for me. I had the good fortune of having Matt as my attorney. He handled EVERYTHING with my accident with the utmost integrity and left me with self-respect and all my bills taken care of. He kept me informed with every step and took EXCELLENT care of me! I literally did not have to worry about anything other than taking care of myself and recovery from my injuries…. I have recommended him to others, and will continue to appreciate his integrity and professionalism in handling my case.
