Matthew B. Wasserman is a South Florida native who has spent his legal career representing accident victims and their families in personal injury matters including, automobile accidents, defective products, premises liability accidents, slip and fall accidents, wrongful death and other accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries.
Matthew has litigated cases throughout the state of Florida against some of the largest insurance companies in the nation, securing maximum results for his clients. In 2019, he was recognized by the American Institute of Trial Lawyers and the National Trial Lawyers as a “Top 40 Under 40” personal injury lawyer.
In addition to being a zealous advocate for his clients, Matthew believes it is equally as important to serve as an advisor and counselor for his clients and their families to help them navigate the difficulties and vulnerability experienced during the litigation process.
Matthew graduated with honors from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law. While in law school, he focused on cultivating both oral and written advocacy skills as a member of the school’s national trial team and The ILSA Journal of International and Comparative Law. Since becoming an attorney, Matthew has been invited back by NSU Law to serve as a guest lecturer in the areas of trial advocacy and legal ethics. Through the university, he also coaches law students preparing for the essay portion of the Florida Bar Exam.
Prior to joining the Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather & Littky-Rubin team, Matthew was an attorney at a boutique law firm in Palm Beach County focusing on a wide range of personal injury and commercial litigation matters.
