The best attorney hands down
I cannot express enough gratitude for the outstanding legal representation provided by Matt throughout our incredibly stressful ordeal. He attentively listened to our story, showing empathy and making me feel heard when I felt others ignored my concerns. What truly sets Matt apart is his stellar character and genuine compassion. Beyond knowing his stuff navigating the complicated legal system, he goes beyond to help others and is a cool human being. He made us feel supported throughout the years long case, explained processes that were foreign, and had clear communication. Most importantly, he demonstrated an adamant belief in my son's path to recovery. Could not recommend a better personal injury attorney!

Review of the best Personal Injury Lawyer Around
Working with Matt was easily the best experience I have ever had working with any attorney. Matt is a dependable, trustworthy, attentive, and highly skilled attorney who I would wholeheartedly recommend to any and all parties who have the misfortune of needing to pursue a personal injury case. Matt took great care of me and was always responsive when I had questions. Matt was able to secure me a settlement that was over 50% more than initially anticipated!!! All this to say if you are looking for someone to represent you in a personal injury case, look no further that Matt!!! 10/5 stars! : )

Excellent attorney and advocate for our son
When my son was in a horrible car accident and received what we knew would be long term injuries that would alter his day to day for life, I asked around to friends old and new and received Matt's name. We interviewed him and several other attorney's in our area and Matt was our choice. While our process was long, Matt left no stone unturned when attempting to recover settlement options for our son. We went into it believing that we didn't have much to work with and came out with payment for his medical expenses now and a sizable settlement that we were happy with for my son for his future. Matt is professional, knowledgeable and very responsive and we will definitely recommend his services to others.

Definitely Call Him
I am happily compelled to write a review of Matthew E. Van Gieson, of MVG-LAW PLLC. What I have discovered to be one of the most valuable attributes in a lawyer representing me, is their ability to listen carefully. I can guarantee, you will never find a better listener in your endeavor to find a representative in your case. Mr. Van Gieson very patiently asks the important questions and gathers all the pertinent facts. To me, these are the key tools needed to win a case! His biography on the MVG-Law website provides some idea of his experience and expertise-- but I wanted to let anyone know, who is looking for the best attorney for their accident claim, that they should not hesitate to call him. You will quickly realize that he is intelligent, honest, extremely knowledgeable, and truly there to help you.

When you've had an accidents and need to hire an attorney, you often just take a chance you hired the right Attorney, well I did hire the right Attorney, I couldn't have been happier it was Matt.

Best decision I ever made.
Matt is essentially the Russell Wilson of his profession. I was injured walking in a crosswalk and Matt took my case, not long after he got a full settlement. I cannot thank Matt enough! If you want results, go to Matt.

Mrs.
My kids and I were rear ended and hit the car in front of us. The seatbelt saved us from any major injuries, but tore my rotator cuff. I had lots of medical bills and needed help getting my insurance company paid back. Matt was extremely helpful in the process. He was insanely kind and walked me through everything he was doing. He always called me right back and if I had a question and didn’t act like I was a burden. I would highly recommend Matt as he gets the job done in a timely manor.

Battle success!
Hi everyone!, my name is Jerry Graham and this is my story. From the moment that I had my consultation with Mr. Van Gieson, my 'not at fault accident' nightmare, became more of a team situation. Mr. Van Gieson made me feel comfortable about my injury and medical bills and I felt confident that I had someone in my corner, supporting me in my battle to recover from my injury and loss of income. The process of physical rehabilitation took just under a year, But!, afterwards the settlement took less than three months! I was well compensated for my injuries, And loss of work. What I found to be most important, is that throughout this ordeal, Mr. Van Gieson was there for me like a friend! Communication is important when your facing calamity in your life, and Mr. Van Gieson was 'steady as she goes' when I needed it most. It can be a real battle to get what you are legally entitled to receive! Choose MVG law and put a winner in your corner!

AMAZING!!
AMAZING! That is the one word that we would describe our outstanding experience with hiring Mr. Van Gieson. He was very attentive to our needs and listened to all that had transpired which led us to needing to hire a lawyer. He took our case when no one else would because he believed in us and our situation. He fought and WON our case! Mr. Van Gieson kept us very involved in every step of the way and communication was top-notch. Not once did we fear we were on our own during this entire issue. We recommend him to everyone who asks us if we know a lawyer and he is most certainly on our speed-dial should we ever need another lawyer.

Highly recommend
Matthew has been working on my car accident case that happened in 2017. I have been extremely satisfied with his work that I chose him to work on my second car accident case that just happened in 2018. He makes me feel at ease from when the whole thing starts, I never feel overwhelmed with any part of it. Matthew is incredibly professional and attentive, always willing and able to answer any of my questions and nicest thing is he is very personable.

Matt is "The Real Deal"
My journey with Matt started over a year ago when I was rear-ended at a stop light and received a whiplash. I was able to receive the treatment that I needed to get better thanks to Matt! He was always professional, courteous and empathetic. He responded to all my inquires in a timely fashion and when it came to time to settle with the insurance company he made sure that I understood the process. I never felt left in the dark or confused about anything thanks to Matt! He is a real pro and I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a great injury attorney...my settlement was fair and my medical bills will be paid. Matt has been such a blessing he helped me heal and get back on my feet! Thank you soooo much Matt and God Bless what you do it is so important helping people you are the real deal :-)

Helped me get everything I wanted--and more!
I hired Mr. Van Gieson to help me with an incident, which had resulted in a large sum of medical bills. A situation like that can be very stressful, but he made me feel like I didn't have to worry too much about it! He was very good about staying in contact with me and answering any questions I had. He also was able to get me what I needed from the insurance company, and even went above and beyond in helping me get out of my apartment lease--consequence free! When speaking in person with him, I also felt that he cared about me not as a dollar sign, but as a person who had been through something tough. If you are having a tough time with deciding who you want representing you, go with Mr. Van Gieson! You will be well taken care of.
