Matt Menzer, founder of Menzer Law, is a top-rated attorney dedicated to providing exceptional legal representation to those who have suffered medical malpractice, a serious personal injury, or the wrongful death of a loved one. A graduate of Brown University, UC Berkeley School of Law, and two federal judicial clerkships, Matt combines his first-rate education with over 30 years' experience to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients.

Matt's deep experience extends to all phases of the litigation process, from case investigation to complex discovery and pretrial motions, settlement, and trial. Additionally, Matt is one of a limited number of attorneys in the United States qualified to represent individuals injured by vaccines in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, where all VICP claims are decided.

Since 2002, Matt has grown Menzer Law on a simple yet powerful belief: Deep legal experience and expertise produce the best possible results when paired with individual quality care. To that end, he deliberately designed Menzer Law to give clients the full attention of a team of experienced, knowledgeable, and assertive attorneys. By limiting his caseload and focusing exclusively on medical malpractice, serious personal injury, and wrongful death claims, Matt and his colleagues can dedicate the time and resources necessary to personally see each case through to a successful conclusion.

In addition to clients, members of the bar and the judiciary have recognized Matt's outstanding achievements in personal injury and medical malpractice law. Martindale-Hubbell, the gold standard in attorney ratings, rates Matt as "AV Preeminent" - the highest grade given to a lawyer for professional excellence. Matt has also earned the highest rating of "superb" by Avvo for his achievements in the legal field, and "Top Lawyer" by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.

Matt has earned the rare distinction of achieving "Super Lawyer" status in two states (WA & HI), one of only a handful of lawyers in the country to have dual status. He is also named as one of the top 25 Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Seattle by Expertise.com and is ranked one of the three best Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Attorneys in Seattle by Three Best Rated.

In recognition of Matt's high ethical standards and professional legal ability, The International Society of Primerus Law Firms selected Menzer Law as the only personal injury firm in Washington state to join its prestigious society of top-rated law firms.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Matt and the team at Menzer Law Firm cannot be recommended highly enough. I never expected to find myself in a situation where I would need to find a lawyer, especially as a physician myself seeking legal counsel for review of a malpractice concern regarding the care my wife received during the birth of our daughter. To this end, I had no idea where to start and felt completely out of my element, until I met Matt Menzer and we reviewed the case. Matt was incredibly caring, respectful and professional. We discussed the case and he reviewed the documents that I had collected. During our meetings, it was clear that he was listening and had truly taken the time to understand the details. Never did we feel rushed or dismissed. We felt heard and taken care of like I imagine my patients want to be heard and taken care of. Ultimately, while no one wants to go through this experience, we feel incredibly lucky to have found Matt and the Menzer Law Firm. It is in the rough times that the great people show themselves. Thank you Matt!!
