Personal Note From R. Matthew Graham
Representing plaintiffs offers me the opportunity to achieve justice in real and concrete terms for those injured by the negligence of others. I am passionate about my role as a “voice” for the too often unnoticed members of society who require the skill and services of a highly trained and experienced trial attorney to right the wrongs brought about by the carelessness of individuals and businesses.
I got into this business originally to right the wrongs of insurance companies who made promises to their clients that they had no intention of keeping. Without zealous and aggressive legal representation, injured people are forced to fight an uphill battle against legions of adjusters and defense attorneys on their own. I entered the profession of representing injured people to even the playing field and bring to bear every tool at my disposal to force those businesses to keep the promises they’ve made and hold them accountable.
Tragedy impacts everyone differently. But the common thread is the need for the client to be truly heard and to be given a voice. I advocate for the injured by learning what they need and focusing on how a complex and often frustrating justice system can meet those needs; can make them whole.
