Mr. Mathews is a civil litigator in Colorado that can be your advocate in the prosecution or defense of general civil litigation matters, including personal injury, torts (civil wrongs), automobile accidents, construction accidents, wrongful death, professional liability, insurance/bad faith, commercial disputes, contract disputes, and product liability.
Mr. Mathews assists his clients with realistically evaluating their claims and defenses, negotiating with the opposition, and litigating in a manner that attempts to efficiently and effectively achieve a successful resolution of his clients’ claims or defenses through discovery, mediation, and trial (whether in arbitration or in a court of law).
Abraham Lincoln’s notes for a law lecture from July 1, 1850 contained the following admonition:
“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser- in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”
The legal system operates much as it did over 163 years ago when Lincoln penned those words, and litigation should still be viewed as a last resort. However, litigation often becomes necessary when parties refuse to accept responsibility for their actions in causing damages and injuries to innocent parties. If one is being sued, litigation may be necessary if the claiming party is unreasonable in his/her demands for a settlement.
As a Counselor of the law, Mr. Mathews desires to treat his clients the way that he would like to be treated, and his goal is to provide realistic evaluations of cases so that his clients can make wise decisions with their claims and defenses, thereby minimizing the stress of a dispute and maximizing the financial outcome.
Mr. Mathews is selective about the clients and the types of cases he accepts. If you have truly suffered a loss, injury, or wrong due to the actions of another party, or you are being sued and need legal representation, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Mathews for a free consultation about your legal matter.
Mr. Mathews’ principal office is located in Lone Tree, Colorado (just south of Denver), but he handles cases across the State of Colorado.
