Background

Matt joined SiebenCarey in 2012. He is a partner and shareholder of the firm. His practice is focused on personal injury and wrongful death claims involving car, motorcycle, boating, ATV, and trucking, tractor-trailer accidents. He also handles liquor liability, medical malpractice, defective products, and premises liability cases.

Matt has been recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Stars honoree. He is an active member in Minnesota's legal community. He serves on the Board of Governors, as well as various committees, for the Minnesota Association for Justice. He is a frequent lecturer and author on topics involving personal injury.

Matt grew up on Minnesota's Iron Range--an area of the state revered for its hard working families and community values. He applies those same principals to handling claims for his clients. Prior to entering the legal world, Matt worked as a carpenter building homes for families throughout the state. He knows first hand how an injury can upend a family's stability when injury sidelines clients who rely on their body to put bread on the table. Matt has strong ties to the northern suburbs, especially Anoka and Coon Rapids, and is devoted to making sure everyone has access to the best legal representation. Matt is a tenacious advocate who takes great pride in achieving justice for the injured.

"In today's world you cannot count on someone who has harmed you, or even your own insurance company, to offer you the compensation you deserve after suffering a loss. Justice must be earned. In most cases, it's an uphill battle that requires dedication, devotion, and personal attention. It's important that clients know their rights and understand the process at every step of the way. The most important thing to me is that my clients are satisfied, and that we've taken care of them in their time of need. I consider myself lucky to work in a profession, and with a law firm, that strives to make a real difference for clients and their families."

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
