Our Happy Clients

I highly recommend his services...

Matt Singer was of invaluable help to my son and my family. My son Weston served with Halliburton in Afghanistan and was injured. AIG stood in his way for years, blocking his treatment and delaying his recovery. After years of trying to resolve this issue, we finally succeeded getting my son his necessary disk replacement surgery. We eventually found and contacted Matt late in our fight. He helped us quickly get the final resolution and settlement with the insurance company through arbitration. If we had known to contact him earlier, we would not have had a six year ordeal with unbelievable anguish and pain. I highly recommend his services.
