Matthew Swartz

“Like all of the attorneys at Fielstra Shibley, Matthew Swartz has never represented the government, big business, insurance companies. He dedicates his practice to representing the injured, the accused, and the disabled.

Matt 3
He started his career representing indigent criminal defendants. This exposed him to the extraordinary imbalance of power between individuals–average citizens–and the government.

In addition to representing the accused, he went on to begin representing injured people against the reckless people who injured them and the mammoth insurance companies who represent them.

His practice areas include:

All personal injury including motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, wrongful death, all criminal defense matters, and social security disability.

He is a Magna cum Laude graduate of the Michigan State University College of Law. Following law school he graduated from the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan Trial Lawyers College and the Hillman Advocacy Program. He is a member of the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan and the Michigan Association for Justice.”
