Attorney Profile

Matthew Nezhad's practice is dedicated to representing injury victims and Personal injury cases. He 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 injured 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, he and his firm won the coveted and prestigious Litigator Awards, back to back, 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. Mr. Nezhad’s firm 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.

In 2016, Matthew Nezhad was selected as "Top 100" by the National Trial Lawyers. In 2017 and 2018, Mr. Nezhad was selected as a Top 25 Mass Tort Trial Lawyer and Truck Accident Lawyer amongst other awards and accolades. 

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 along with environmental cases against some of the largest coporations in the US. 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. The firm is currently involved in handling and respresenting hundreds of homeowners and victims of the Porter Ranch (Aliso Cyn) Gas Leak Catastrophe and also representing many victims of the deadliest mass shooting, in our history, the Las Vegas Route 91 mass shooting which left 58 dead and thousands injured.      

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 Nezhad 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 Nezhad Law is that the firm accepts a limited number of cases annually. “Due to its success, the firm 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.  

Aside, from the practice of law, Mr. Nezhad, dedicates his time to his family and spends time on certain projects that are very near and dear to him, namely, the Corazon De Vida Orphanages and other organizations assisting children in need.  

In his spare time, he enjoys reading, playing tennis, basketball and bike riding.
