I spend most of my time helping clients set things right after they have been taken advantage of or injured by people or companies who refuse to take responsibility for their actions or to live up to the agreements they've made.  This is an honor and a privilege, and its why I love being a trial lawyer.

 

I grew up in Montana working in my family's construction company, and moved to Spokane to attend Gonzaga University. After College I stayed to work as a Transportation Planner with WSDOT until I began practicing law.  I'm glad to call the Inland Northwest my home together with my wife and four children. For the last few years I lived in Grant County but I just recently moved back to Spokane and now our firm has offices in both Grant County and Spokane County. This allows convenient access to our clients throughout Eastern Washington.  When I'm not in court or helping clients, I'm usually riding motorcycles or playing soccer with my kids.

Excellent attorney
No pressure attorney. Extremely good results. If you need assistance with legal matters Matt is the way to go. I'll never go to another attorney and will refer only him from now on.
Response from Matthew Albrecht July 17, 2018
Thanks Josh, it was our absolute pleasure to help you get fair treatment from the insurance companies! I'm so glad to hear you were pleased with our work.

An excellent lawyer and amazing human being!
There are no words that can adequately express my sincerest gratitude for Mr. Albrecht and his wonderful staff! When all hope seemed to be lost, he went above and beyond the duties of an attorney. Actions speak louder than words and Mr. Albrecht's actions sent a clear message that my case was as personal to him as it was to me. I can't thank you and your kind, considerate, and courteous staff, specifically Melanie, for how you treated me during a time that has been life changing for myself and my children. The crime that was committed against me has forever changed me and reshaped the future for my family. Because you expressed your belief in me and the validity of the horrific situation I had endured, it gave me the strength to continue fighting even when it seemed hopeless. Again, I can't thank you enough for your service and for believing me! Thank you!

The firm is literally a life saver
Compassionate and professional! Matt and his team are customer service centered and went the extra mile for our case. Highly recommended. The firm worked under pressure and under a tight deadline to keep my son recieving the care he needed to save his life.

Diligent, knowledgeable & caring attorney
I contacted the Albrecht Law with an enquiry regarding a recent auto accident in which I was involved. Navigating the insurance company relative to personal injury, general damages etc. can be a challenge especially considering that the insurance adjusters are working very hard to decrease THEIR costs. Matt generously offered me his time and expertise and seemed genuinely interested that I establish a clear path to a proper, fair settlement. He was organized, professional and caring - all valued & desirable attributes of a good attorney. His insights and advice were immensely helpful to me and I appreciated it enough to author this review.

Giving the little guy a voice!
As a small business owner from California, that desperately needed a commercial lawyer from Washington State at an affordable price, I was lucky to be referred to Mr. Matthew Albrecht by an associate. After speaking with him, and not having many options left, I decided to give him a try. Almost a year later, I can honestly say it has been, hands down, one of the best decisions I’ve made for my young company! I’m sure you know litigation can be a super stressful endeavor, one that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Rest assured that Matthew and his team were always super nice, really understanding and really took the time to understand all facets of my case. Time and time again he would “reel me back in” and provided honest realistic feedback and always helped me understand the pros and cons of any decisions that were presented to us. You can tell he has a passion for what he does, and he’s really good to boot! Yes, we prevailed in our case, and I can absolutely attribute this win to Matthew and his team’s efforts. I’ll end this review with the “I hope I never have to use him again” blurb, but if I did, I know I would sleep a lot better knowing I was in good hands. You can rest easy as well, all you have to do is give Matthew a call, you've got nothing to lose!

I would highly recommend Matthew Albrecht as a lawyer
Mr. Albrecht surprised me by his ability to get me compensation for my injuries when I thought any funds would go towards medical costs. He & his staff were so conscientious and fast in communicating to me; answering all my questions clearly. The honest, personal approach of the staff & he made it possible to continue in this case. I would highly recommend Matthew Albrecht & his staff to anyone. I am thankful for their kindness to me in a time of frustration & pain.

Positive Outcome in Employment Discrimination Case
I was a party to a lawsuit against the state of Washington, DSHS, Children's Adminjistration, relating to issues impacting Native American social workers. These issues were longstanding systemic and discriminatory mistreatment which resulted in disparate and negative outcomes for Indian social workers and the Indian families and children assigned to them. The problems caused by this disparate mistreatment manifested in inequitable caseload assignments for Indian social workers resulting in poorer outcomes for Indian children and families. With the assistance of Matt Albrecht and his partner, George Ahrend, and after 7 days of trial which ended in a mistrial caused by the state's counsel, we were able to negotiate a successful settlement. Matt and George were committed, conscientious, and tenacious against a very large agency with a long history of obfuscation and delaying tactics. I have and will contintue to recommend Matt and George to others experiencing employment discrimination.

Review of Matthew Albrecht
He is always their for any questions I have and has gone out of his way to help my case.
Posted by greg | August 20, 2009
Very Pleased Client
I retained Matt Albrecht as my civil attorney after he was highly recommended by one of my peers. Matt proved to be a very good attorney and I also highly recommend him. He treated me with respect and always made time to answer my questions. Even after our victory, he has kept in touch to check on me and my family. Not only is he one heck of an attorney, he is also a great person.
