About The Firm


Meet Patrick A. Matson

I help clients who have been seriously injured by someone else’s negligence. Thinking ‘outside of the box’ on cases, along with careful planning and investigation, are what allow me to achieve positive results for clients.

Why Did I Go Into Law?

The best attorneys get results for their clients because they have a curiosity about every detail of the case. Attorneys need to be willing to turn over a lot of rocks. I love to do that for my clients. It produces great results.

Initially, I wanted to go into law to be an estate planner. As I have advanced in my legal practice, I found that my natural bent and talents were more aptly suited for personal injury litigation.
