Never go to this lawyer is the liar. Before you sign the agreement is going to tell you what you want to heard. The price is high for nothing. You call the office to take a appointment to talk to the lawyer they never get back to you. I call him back for a refunds and he tried to Intimidate me telling if i do is going to sue me and hang up on me. I understand why they were treated me like that. They are liar and Unprofessional. I recommend a friend there and regretted that too. Is look like a scam be careful dealing with them. I pay $6750 for the agreement of $7500, they didn’t do anything for me if is not lied to me all time. The most worst lawyer i never saw in my life.😝😝😝

I saw Matthew Kolken in 2014 for a free initial consultation. I was under threat of being deported due to my employer's improper actions. I repeatedly told Mr. Kolken that I was on a J-1 visa waiver, but the advice he gave was as if he thought I was merely on an H1 visa. It was as if he did not understand the J-1 visa program. At the meeting I actually knew more about the relevant J-1 immigration law than he did. I could not believe he was actually an immigration expert. He told me that my employer was required to pay for me to be transported back to my country, but other than that I had no case, no rights and I would just need to go back to where I came from. What he was saying reflected such a profound ignorance of J-1 visa waiver law that I actually started explaining the law to him. Despite my explanation, he continued to give the same ridiculous and worthless advice, concluding that I had no case and that I needed to prepare to leave my American family behind. He told me had a conflict of interest. He wanted to preserve a business relationship with my employer. I give him credit for being up front about that. However, he should have stopped right there, offering no advice. Instead he gave bad and incorrect advice. My impression is that he was not attempting to mislead me to protect my employer, which of course would be unethical. Rather he simply did not know the law. It is a good thing I did not believe him and saw other lawyers, with whom I successfully litigated my employer's actions. I was not deported and ended up winning a substantial settlement from my employer. I want to be fair. I really do not want to hurt Mr. Kolken's feelings, and do not want to hurt his reputation, but I feel a duty to report my experience to warn others who might otherwise rely on him. Deportation cases of course can seriously affect people's lives. Please note that what I am reporting occurred in 2014. Maybe by now he has improved significantly.

I highly recommend Mr Kolken and his team. My husband was fighting his deportation case in Boston and Mr Kolken had the case transferred to Buffalo. We had applied for a 42B and Mr Kolken was more than prepared when we walked into the courtroom. He was very professional and made the case an easy win for my husband. I can’t express the gratitude we feel for him and his team for all of their hard work.

AAL general personal injury Frequently Asked Questions

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury law encompasses legal remedies and defenses involved in civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. It covers situations where someone's negligence or intentional actions cause harm to another person. Personal injury law allows injured individuals to seek compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This area of law often involves cases such as car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and defective product injuries.

What is compensation for a personal injury claim?

Compensation for a personal injury claim typically includes monetary damages intended to compensate the injured party for their losses. This compensation can cover various aspects such as medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages or income, property damage, and pain and suffering. The goal is to provide financial relief to the injured person and help them recover from the physical, emotional, and financial impact of their injuries.

Is emotional distress a personal injury?

Emotional distress can be considered a personal injury under certain circumstances. In legal terms, emotional distress refers to the psychological impact of an injury or traumatic event, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While it may not always involve physical harm, emotional distress can still be compensable in a personal injury claim if it can be linked to the defendant's actions or negligence.

What percentage do most personal injury lawyers take?

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if they successfully recover compensation for their clients. Typically, personal injury lawyers take a percentage of the final settlement or court award as their fee. The percentage varies but commonly ranges from 33% to 40% of the total recovery. This arrangement allows injured individuals to pursue legal action without upfront costs and ensures that attorneys are motivated to achieve favorable outcomes for their clients.

How long does a personal injury lawsuit take?

The duration of a personal injury lawsuit can vary significantly depending on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the extent of the injuries, and the court's schedule. Some cases may be resolved through settlement negotiations relatively quickly, while others may take months or even years to reach a resolution, especially if they go to trial. Additionally, factors such as gathering evidence, conducting discovery, and waiting for medical treatment to conclude can influence the timeline of a personal injury lawsuit.

What is an example of a serious injury claim?

An example of a serious injury claim could involve catastrophic injuries that result in long-term or permanent disabilities, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, severe burns, or limb amputations. These types of injuries often have significant and lasting effects on the victim's physical, emotional, and financial well-being, requiring extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. Serious injury claims typically seek substantial compensation to cover these extensive damages and provide for the victim's future needs.

What is compensation for a loss or injury?

Compensation for a loss or injury refers to the financial recovery awarded to an injured party in a legal proceeding. This compensation aims to restore the injured person to the position they were in before the injury occurred to the extent possible. It can include economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. The goal of compensation is to help the injured individual recover physically, emotionally, and financially from the consequences of their injury.

What is the highest personal injury settlement?

The highest personal injury settlement or verdict can vary greatly depending on the specific circumstances of the case, including the severity of the injuries, the extent of the damages, and the jurisdiction where the case is tried. Settlements and verdicts in personal injury cases have reached into the tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars in some instances, particularly in cases involving catastrophic injuries, medical malpractice, or wrongful death. However, there is no fixed limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded in a personal injury case, as each case is evaluated based on its unique factors and the applicable laws and precedents.
