How We Work

We get paid only if we win a client’s case in court or settle it.  Our clients pay no attorneys fees unless they recover.  Court costs, legal expenses, medical bills are paid from a client’s share of the recovery. If no recovery, clients are not responsible for any court costs or legal expenses, except unpaid medical bills.  We offer a free legal consultation.

Individual Cases, Individual Attention

In pharmaceutical drug litigation, people often have vastly different injuries and circumstances; therefore they need their cases handled on an individual basis. At Matthews & Associates, we may sometimes file cases in a group; but we virtually always prosecute them on an individual case-by-case basis.
