As a personal injury attorney, Matthew Nezhad has dedicated his entire legal career to protecting the rights of injured victims and helping them get the maximum compensation possible for their injuries. He is committed to fighting for the rights of injured victims and holding the wrongdoer(s) accountable for their negligent actions. He does this by aggressively pursuing his Clients’ best interests and to obtain the best possible result for each case. Matthew established the NSL Law Firm with these objectives in mind and has built a legal team and staff who have the experience, dedication, and resources to get the job done right.

Matthew Nezhad is a life member of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum – The Top Trial Lawyers in America, for having successfully obtained million and multi-million dollar results for his clients. This prestigious recognition is bestowed on only the top 1% of lawyers in the nation. He has also been selected as a “Super Lawyer” by his peers. A very select group of attorneys have this honor. A “Super Lawyer” is identified for   having attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement and are selected for inclusion to this esteemed group. In 2014 and 2015, NSL was also nominated for the prestigious Litigator Awards and were ultimately recipients of the 2014 Litigator Awards for Catastrophic Injuries and Personal Injury. The Litigator Awards represent the highest honors in Trial Law, and justly stands as the nation’s most coveted symbol of “Litigation Achievement”. The Awards are based on actual “Verdict & Settlement” dollar achievement. NSL is now part of an exclusive fraternity of Super-Star Lawyers who have won Million, Multi-Million cases- a feat achieved by fewer than 1% of all lawyers. Of the nearly 1.1 million lawyers considered, only a select few (about 12 Law Firms) per State, achieve distinction of being awarded each year.

Matthew continues to aggressively pursue his clients’ best interests not only against insurance companies but also against large corporations and major pharmaceutical companies for their defective and dangerous products. He has also represented hundreds of clients against the makers of the diet drug, Fen-Phen, and continues to represent those who have been victims of life altering prescription drugs.

Matthew loves being a Personal Injury Lawyer for its challenges and because he is a natural problem solver. He is also a firm believer that in all injury cases the devil is in the detail. The ability to focus on the smallest detail, while never losing sight of the big picture, is crucial. Matthew and firm have successfully managed to balance their detailed knowledge of personal injury law and the injuries their clients sustain with the strategic planning that helps them realize and achieve their clients’ goals. A distinguishing characteristic of the NSL Law Firm is that the firm accepts a limited number of cases annually. Due to its success, NSL has been fortunate to receive referrals of cases over the years from past clients, other attorneys and law firms and has also been mentioned in the media for noteworthy and publicized cases.
