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 is a Certified Civil Trial Law Specialist, a certification program administered by the Minnesota State Bar Association and approved by the State Board of Legal Certification. Certified attorneys have successfully completed numerous jury trials and demonstrated superior knowledge, skill and integrity. This achievement has been earned by fewer than 3% of all licensed Minnesota attorneys. Matt is also a member of the Academy of Certified Trial Lawyers of Minnesota.

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."

Injuries are difficult in many ways. Physically speaking, they are burdensome and debilitating. On the mental/emotional level, they are traumatizing and labor intensive. Before having my case transferred to SiebenCarey and the legal team of Matthew Steinbrink, I was ready to give up. From our very first point of contact, I knew I was in good hands. Matt and the team were extremely empathetic and receptive to my concerns, and I was constantly reassured that I would be at the forefront of all decisions being made. This level of respect and transparency would remain a constant for the rest of my case. I am forever indebted to Matt and his extraordinary team of professionals. Thank you for fighting this fight with me.

Mary Beth Edstrom

The process seemed to take more time than I anticipated and especially long delays with the Covid, no fault of your office or my attorney Matt Steinbrink. Matt and his staff were excellent. My case was emotional for me since my accident occurred when we were in route to the bedside of our dying son. Matt was kind and very sensitive to my situation as was his staff, in particular Rachel who I dealt with this past many months. I felt time was taken to prepare me for all that was to take place including the deposition and follow up on each step. I appreciated how professionally my case was addressed. I would recommend Matt Steinbrink to others and use his expertise if I ever have a future need!

Fine Representation

Trust your insurance liability, property, and health coverage all you like, but be prepared to prove the value you've already paid in premiums and play games, or find experience and sound advice in legal representation.

Having experienced a distracted driver in a head-on accident, we were too predisposed with our own incapacitating injuries to negotiate the matters of insurance, or our best interests. We reached out to the SiebenCarey firm, based on its reputation, and John and Shannon Carey, and Matt Steinbrink offered their representation and expertise to dispute and clarify the nature of vehicle and health insurance not only for us, but also to the insurers, who were eager to secure financial interests in place of our good-faith investment...otherwise known as “premiums”.

To any who need similar legal aid -- wisdom is seeking the counsel of experts in their field before you're in a position where both your health and finances are compromised, and your innocence questioned by other parties who wish the appearance of your guilt for their benefit.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

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.
