Matthew Nezhad is a life member of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum – The Top Trial Lawyers in America, for having successfully obtained million and multi-million dollar results for his clients. This prestigious recognition is bestowed on only the top 1% of lawyers in the nation. He has also been selected as a “Super Lawyer” by his peers. A very select group of attorneys have this honor. A “Super Lawyer” is identified for having attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement and are selected for inclusion to this esteemed group.

Matthew loves being a Personal Injury Lawyer for its challenges and because he is a natural problem solver. He is also a firm believer that in all injury cases the devil is in the detail.
