The field of workers compensation is constantly changing. The successful strategies of several years ago are now irrelevant and expensive. The habitual tendencies of many workers compensation firms of maximizing profits by deposing and conducting sub-rosa on each and every Applicant – without regard for the facts of each case – fails to provide the attention necessary to each client’s business needs when fashioning a litigation strategy.
Here, at the Matthews Law Group, P.C., our focus is to use our detailed knowledge of the Labor Code to aggressively resolve each claim with a litigation strategy specifically tailored to each client’s business needs. Whether an insurance carrier, third-party administrator or self-insured employer, each client at the Matthews Law Group, P.C. is provided with targeted cost-effective solutions to their workers compensation challenges – including Serious & Willful Misconduct and Labor Code Section 132a actions.
Unlike many firms, subrogation is not merely something we “do” at the Matthews Law Group, P.C.. We are passionate about the pursuit of subrogation recoveries because we understand its important role in offsetting the expense of insurance claims on our client’s business operations – from large insurance carriers, to third-party administrators or to self-insureds.

• Auto Subrogation

At the Matthews Law Group, P.C., we are trial attorneys who enjoy the challenge of the courtroom. Our attorneys are experienced, tested, and have proven results on behalf of clients in courtrooms throughout California. When other avenues to resolve a dispute have failed, we are prepared to aggressively pursue judicial relief in the courts or defend any claims brought against our clients.
Our goal is to be the most prepared litigators in the courtroom. We consider every fact and possible inference in a case when developing a client's litigation strategy. Part of this strategy is soliciting the experience and expertise of our clients in fashioning litigation plans. We accomplish this through regular communication with our clients which is intended to establish a sound knowledge base and allow for a quick response to new developments in case.
However, an aggressive, adversarial approach to disputes isn’t always in our client’s best interests. Focusing on the solution and not the dispute ensures that the Matthews Law Group, P.C. provides its client with targeted solutions to their legal disputes – not one-size-fits-all advice that usually benefits the lawyers and not their clients.
