    Matthew and his assistant Debra are absolutely wonderfully dedicated to their clients. The legal support they provide is top of the line, but the emotional support is what really got me through the two year battle. Matthew takes on the majority of the stress and is always there to give you that pep talk when the process has taken it's toll. I would highly recommend him.

    I was very pleased on how the firm worked with me and kept in contact with me as well as they're consideration on working with me for both cases(one on contingency and one as a lien against the other)even though I had no money upfront. Kevin Hayslett treated me with the utmost respect the entire time he represented me which greatly impressed me.

    It is a long process and they handled everything for me. Anytime I called with questions or concerns I had an immediate response by a lawyer. If my attorney was not available other attorneys at the firm would speak with me.
