Nice work Matt, you are batting a thousand this year.
Client
Outstanding work! Great job!
National Coordinating Counsel for Fortune 500 company
We so appreciate your presentation and obvious preparedness for yesterday's motion hearing. It is our belief that your last summary brief probably helped the judge understand the sequence of events much better and landed you that whopping sum you were awarded. [...] Anyway, thank you and we appreciate your efforts. The first and only glimmer of a bright spot since [we were sued].
Insured Client
To Matthew Moffett: A tough case with such a sympathetic plaintiff, well done sir, I’d have you as my lawyer any time!
Client
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
Michael, I must say, this is why I like working with you and your firm. You have been aggressively thorough where it counts. The results of this expert investigation will significantly aid our defense. This is why, according to the jurors in our last trial, we prevailed with the defense verdict on the multi-million dollar fire loss you tried for one of our clients.
