About this firm

From its Houston and New York offices, Matthews & Associates has helped injured people recover civil damages in nearly all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Founded by David Matthews, a former partner in one of Texas' oldest personal injury firms, Matthews & Associates is a law firm of trial lawyers, researchers, investigators and medical personnel.

We investigate, hire experts, take depositions, order medical records and spend our own money to fight Big Pharma, Big Oil and other corporate Goliaths. We suit up and hit state and federal courts for people who may have gotten a raw deal or had bad luck with some dubious corporate product. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means a client pays us nothing unless we win the case in court or settle it.

David Matthews and his legal team have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation - excluding attorney fees and expenses - for cases involving dangerous drugs, truck and auto accidents, house and petro-chemical explosions, construction accidents, birth injury, product liability, electrocutions, nursing home abuse, abuse by clergy and more.

    David Matthews and his firm Matthews & Associates, esp lawyer Steve Faries, helped us fight our HOA and one household of awful neighbors in Montgomery County. The firm got the experts, did the research, filed our case in civil court, and we won. We got the best results we could have hoped for. We couldn't have had a better outcome than we got from Matthews & Associates.

    I was involved in a legal dispute with neighbors north of Houston and a runaway HOA that was making arbitrary decisions which destroyed our peace of mind as well as our home value. Matthews & Associates attorney Steve Faries was able to settle the entire matter after a great deal of research, petitions, amended petitions, and finally mediation. It was a long-running nightmare, but it's over, thanks to Steve Faries and Matthews & Associates, who successfully resolved the entire ordeal.

    Staff lacks knowledge and professionalism. At times, some staff members are simply rude. There is a complete inability to reach the person intended as staff will block/prohibit such communication. Each staff member gives a different answer to identical question. Is this culture a creation of the business? If it is, it's giving a poor image. Improve communication skills, hire professional staff, inform staff to be professional. Hold regular staff meetings to inform staff of pertinent inform

    I have been a client for almost 10 years in a defective drug claim. I would never use this firm again in life. They ignore voicemail's, continuously lied about my disbursement for two years and 87% of their staff is unprofessional and down right rude.

    They are non responsive and uncaring about resolving client issues. I was apart of a class action suit and awarded settlement. Liens for medicaid and medicare were withheld. I received check for lien resolution for Medicaid part which I agreed with. However, I never Medicare until several years after taking medicine. I cashed check in agreement with Medicaid amount. Law firm is refusing to refund Medicare amount because they say I agreed to total settlement which is not true.
