In fact, he recently obtained life membership into both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.  Membership is limited to attorneys who have obtained million and multi-million verdicts and/or settlements on behalf of their injured clients.  Less than 1% of practicing lawyers in the U.S. are members.  Further, Matthew was previously recognized by Florida Trends Magazine, as a “Legal Elite Up and Comer.”  The selection process consisted of notifying and inviting members of the Florida Bar to nominate top attorneys in practice less than 10 years or under 40 years old. Matthew was recognized by AVVO.com with a “Client’s Choice for Personal Injury” award in 2012, based on feedback from former satisfied clients.  Matthew has attained a perfect 10.0 rating from Avvo.com, a leading database for attorney rankings.  Thus, Matthew has earned a tremendous reputation among his colleagues through his zealous work on behalf of his injured clients both inside and out of the courtroom. Matthew has extensive experience handling first- and third-party insurance claims of all types and, more specifically, claims in the following injury areas: automobile accidents, wrongful death, catastrophic injury, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, plus violations of Florida’s Consumer Collection Practices Act and asset protection for Florida physicians.

In fact, he readily supplies all clients with his cell phone number along with his office contact information, so he is accessible to his clients each and every day. Matthew is often called upon by his colleagues to assist in litigating personal injury claims throughout the State of Florida.  The process of selecting the best attorney for your case is not easy.  Keep in mind it is so very important that your advocate is respected by defense lawyers and the Court.  A common complaint we here from clients who previously retained a television law firm for a prior accident claim, is there attorney was often referred to as an “ambulance chaser” and did not have a reputation for litigating claims.  Our goal remains to maximize the damages in your respective claim while maintaining a personal relationship with you.  At many law firms, it is difficult to get your attorney on the phone.  Hence, this is the reason why all clients are provided the cell phone number for our Managing Partner.
