Highly recommend Mr. Hess for anyone searching for an injury attorney. He was very responsive, dedicated, and always kept me and my family in the loop. Overall, Mr. Hess was extremely knowledgeable in the law, articulate, and effectively addressed all our questions while proactively preparing us for what was ahead in terms of next steps and any potential issues. We ended up with an award twice what we were expecting. Can’t thank him enough, we were lucky to have him.

Mr. Hess was the consummate professional. He took the time to explain what was happening every step of the way, and never made me feel like a nuisance for asking a lot of questions. (Possibly excessive amount of questions.) I would whole-heartedly recommend him, great lawyer and person.

Excellent legal advise! I contacted Matt regarding a medical bill I received for my sons visit to the hospital. Matt was able to give me direction on how to dispute, who to dispute it with and the proper legal terminology and points to focus on. Through his counsel, the bill was reduced significantly! I will be highly recommending Matt to my family and friends!

Had a wonderful experience with Mattew Hess after an accident left us shaken. We got to take care of ourselves and our kiddos and let him take care of the rest. Everything was mostly stress free and Matt walked us through every step of the way from start to finish. Turned an awful situation into something tolerable. Matt is genuinely a really nice guy as well. Super caring and easy to deal with.
