Adverse Counsel Testimonial for Mr. Moffett
Matt- I finally got around to reading the case summaries {Daily Report}. While these were older claims, my understanding is that to try 4 claims in one year would be a lot; much less to have done so within 3 months. I note the high/low agreement as to the pedestrian claim. Very impressive!
Client
I want to thank you for all of your hard work and the great job you did preparing and trying the case.  I heard along the way what a good job you both did during trial, and several colleagues asked me to pass along their respects for a job well done.   I just got off the phone with the insured and he couldn't say enough about what great lawyers you both are and how much he appreciated how well you treated him.  His wife used words like "superb" and "fantastic," and said that she couldn't have hand picked better attorneys.   They both felt a great sense of relief getting what they called vindication.  I think this will help them move on after almost five years. Thanks again for your hard work.

Matt, let me join the parade of people offering their congratulations. Great article. The article had you holding your own before a barrage of questions. I must admit I am not surprised. Your intellect, drive and work ethic are unsurpassed. The article in the FCDR is terrific. You can't buy publicity like that.
