“I’ve been practicing law for 30 years, the last 28 as a plaintiffs’ lawyer. I was a partner for 16 years in one of the oldest plaintiffs’ firms in Texas when I started Matthews & Associates eleven years ago. We employ ten lawyers and about 60 employees today.
My main focus has been on dangerous medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs, but I’ve also worked in many other litigation areas, including product liability, premises liability, toxic torts, you name it. I’ve filed cases against many of the biggest companies in the world, Johnson & Johnson, Cook Medical, C.R. Bard, General Electric, Bayer, Merck, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, the usual suspects. We consider our firm a heavy lifter, in that we handle most of our cases ourselves, working them up right to trial and then trying them. Though in recent years we are referring out more cases than we have in the past. I guess that’s just the nature of this business. You can’t do everything well, but the cases we do choose to handle we feel we prosecute them as well as any firm in the country. “View in Lawyer Monthly Magazine >
