I was fired by my federal employer shortly after telling them I had a disability. A government investigator determined that my claim had no merit, so I contacted Mr. Crotty who assembled a legal team (including Michael Love and Ryan Best who are from different law firms) to review my case. They determined that I had a valid disability discrimination case, and pursued it to a successful conclusion. At all times, Mr. Crotty kept me informed and answered all my questions. He and his team were respectful, supportive, straight-forward, and helpful in preparing me for the various stages of the process. I feel extremely lucky to have found Mr. Crotty and his team.

I hired Matthew Crotty to represent me in a USERRA lawsuit against an employer. From the very beginning Matthew communicated to me the steps the process takes while also providing guidance. If I had questions Matthew was easy to contact and was willing to answer any questions I had. In addition, when Matthew was negotiating with the defense; he would keep me informed which helped ease my stress. Matthew Crotty and Thomas Jarrard were amazing lawyers that had the utmost integrity.

Matt Crotty is an excellent attorney with high integrity. Our son with disabilities suffered a severe injury at a hotel where the entrance was not ADA or state code compliant. We spent nine months on our own trying to negotiate with the hotel’s insurance company to be reasonable and pay a portion of the medical bills. They continually denied our request - so we finally turned to Matt for help. Thanks to Matt’s hard work we were offered a fair settlement that paid for our son’s medical bills as well as his pain and suffering. The hotel also made proper modifications to their facility so it is now more accessible for those with disabilities. Matt was kind, down to earth, honest, and knowledgeable throughout the process. We liked Matt’s Spokane roots, local Gonzaga University education, and his strong military background.

Matt represented me on a shareholder derivative lawsuit against my investment company’s manager. Matt’s work resulted in the court finding that the investment manager breached his fiduciary duties and a resulting settlement of the case. I would recommend Matt on such cases in the future.

Mr. Crotty was beyond excellent with his handling and execution of my case and the two trials that it involved. He had a very difficult and challenging case that set precedent for all veterans across the US and was opposed by a council who’s tactics were less then above bar. His demeanor was fantastic throughout the case but the most impressive quality he has is his outstanding and dedicated work ethic. Mr. Crotty did not spare any time, cut corners or lower his standards for an easier and quicker solution that would have sacrificed an aspect of the case. Additionally his courtroom presence and speech and integrity is second to none. I was proud to have him represent me.

My former employer fired me shortly after I told management I had cancer. I got referred to Matt Crotty. Matt did a great job working up my case. Ultimately Matt determined that my company probably violated state age and disability discrimination laws, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the COBRA statute. Matt's investigation also revealed that the company's deduction of business loss from my wages likely violated Washington wage law. Matt was able to work with the company in getting the matter resolved. I would recommend Matt to anyone with a discrimination or wage related claim.

Matt has helped me periodically over the past few years. Always stellar work, and insightful analysis. Last month I saw him deliver his closing arguments in Federal Court for an employment discrimination jury trial. While usually I'm pretty skeptical of 'discrimination claims', I was totally entranced with Matt's closing. With a very detailed, powerful presentation, Matt led the jury (and I found myself reacting as well) to the only possible conclusion. It was as if he dropped bread crumbs for all of us to follow.
Matt's representation of his client was not only professional, but he obviously cared deeply for his client. He was truly fighting like his own life was on the line. Persuasive, articulate, passionate, and clear.
I know who I want in my corner representing me. Matt Crotty. Without a doubt.

Matthew advised me fully and thoroughly on USERRA law as well as applicable state provisions of law as I entered the military. Matthew's expertise in this area is fantastic and he helped ensure, as a Reservist in the Armed Forces, that I received full benefits from my civilian employer while on active duty. Matthew was prompt and accurate in his legal advise and I highly recommend his services.

Matt worked tirelessly on my behalf to settle a USERRA case against a Fortune 500 company. Throughout the process I knew he was dedicating his time to the case and I was never left "in the dark". Matt guided me through the complex process and never made promises he could not keep. He is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have met and/or worked with in my long career. It is refreshing to have an attorney work this hard toward a fair and acceptable settlement. Even though I was not, I always felt that I was Matt's only client. That is a sign of quality communication skills and adept knowledge of the law. I recommend Matt without reservation.

Matt was part of a team that represented me in a USERRA case involving a large company and large insurance. Because Matt has experience of being on both sides of litigation he brought an interesting dynamic to the table that provided insight and help me in making decisions especially in the latter parts of the case. The team and him are very knowledgeable on veterans laws and protections and being that they are all veterans it really helped in the communication section, they all understood where i was coming from. I could not have had a better team. Very grateful for your hard work and dedication Mr. Crotty, thank you.
